Question - What is crest factor?
Answer - Crest factor is the ratio of the peak
value to the RMS value. Thus, crest factor specifies the dynamic
range of a true RMS instrument.
- For sinusoidal waveforms, the crest factor
- For a symmetrical square wave the crest
factor is unity.
- The crest factor of a rectangular pulse is
related to its duty cycle; as the duty cycle decreases the crest
