Why does SquareD/Schneider Electric recommend Drive Isolation Transformers for use with Variable (adjustable) Frequency Drives?

Issue:
Drive Isolation Transformers

Product Line:
LV Transformers

Environment:
Applies to Low Voltage Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Cause:
Variable Speed/Frequency Drives can be unusually difficult loads for standard Transformers

Resolution:
