Non-linear load

A load where the shape of the current waveform does not follow the shape of the applied voltage waveform. Such loads include phase-control dimmers and switch-mode power supplies.

Non-linear loads produce harmonics, and these can be triplen harmonics (see harmonics, triplen) that cause neutral overcurrent and transformer overheating.
