What are the pros and cons of using harmonic mitigating transformers compared to k-factor transformers to handle non-linear loads?

A K- factor transformer is really an oversized transformer with more copper to protect itself against harmonics. a beefier transformer. A harmonic mitigating transformer is more like a zig-zag transformer to trap the harmonics in the windings. This is more effective in reducing the distortion. The K-factor will not reduce the THD.
