Understand what Crest Factor is and how to use PMI equipment to measure it.


Crest Factor is a very quick and simple measurement that can be used to determine the compatibility of a load that will be powered from a synthetic AC source, such as an inverter or UPS.


The combination of a PMI recorder and ProVision can be used to determine this factor and verify the solar inverter, generator, UPS or other synthetic AC source’s capacity to handle the measured load appropriately.
