Are there considerable line losses with the V1k?

Line losses from the V1k are not published because they vary greatly due to the system dynamics and such settings as drive carrier frequency. From independent testing done by a major drive manufacturer, the V1k was found to be 98% efficient in operation. From a line voltage drop consideration, the impedance of the filter is 1.5% at rated load. For example, a 21 amp V1k will have a line voltage drop of approximately 1.5% when applied to a 480 volt line at 21 amps. Because impedance is proportionate to the load, the line voltage drop will decrease as the percent of load decreases.
