What types of load are there (resistive loads, inductive loads, lamp and capacitor loads)?
The load types and their characteristics are as follows.
1. Resistive Loads
Nichrome heaters and other loads to which the same current continues to flow when voltage is applied
2. Inductive Loads
Motors, solenoids, and other loads with inrush current
3. Lamp and Capacitor Loads
Loads with inrush current even larger than with inductive loads
AC Loads and Inrush Current:
|Type of load||Ratio of inrush current to|
|Incandescent bulb||Approx. 10 to 15|
|Motor||Approx. 5 to 10|
|Relay||Approx. 2 to 3|
|Capacitor||Approx. 20 to 50|
