Waveform Distortions in Voltage or Currents | Electrical Engineering

Waveform distortion is defined as a steady-state deviation from an ideal sine wave of power frequency principally characterized by the spectral content of the deviation. There are five primary types of waveform distortion: 1. DC Offset 2. Harmonics 3. Interharmonics 4. Notching 5. Noise. Type # 1. DC Offset: The presence of a dc voltage or current in an ac [...]
