K rated Transformers for application on Non Linear loads

The Transformer industry does not typically use a `K1` rating.  Rather it is a non-recognized term that some (consultants, OEMs, contractors) use  to denote a Transformer that will only be feeding Linear loads such as motors, compressors, solenoids, heaters, etc.   In other words, K1 refers to a Transformer that does not have a  `K` rating such as K4, K9, K13, K20.
