What is crest factor?

The crest factor refers to the ratio of the peak value of the waveform to the effective value (RMS) in an AC circuit. Under the condition that the transmission power is constant, as the peak value increases, the effective value (RMS) also increases. Therefore, the power consumption also increases. The crest factor is sometimes used to account for the stress of the current in the AC power line.
