Linear AC power sources feature low-distortion, wide-bandwidth, excellent transient response and the lowest possible output impedance. The advantage of linear amplifications is faithful reproduction of the (synthesized) oscillator waveforms. This ability to create synthesized waveforms makes Pacific Power Source’s AMX Series power source ideal for simulating AC Power line harmonics and other power perturbations.

This white paper will familiarize the reader with how various harmonics injected on individual phases (line to neutral) may not produce the expected results when observed line to line.
