You need to understand what non linearity actually is. My previous comment was related to distortion.
really? so they have infinite reactive storage capacity?
where does it go?
if it can't get past the cap?
say it's DC...won't it charge the cap and stop flowing?
so, all freq and energy goes there, and is stored there, and the same for the other filter, so bi-wring takes twice the energy/power?
I got this all wrong: I thought a transformer (L) trans
ferred energy, not stored it...although most have a ~5% loss due to energizing, once 'hot', it transfers 95%...btw, they are pretty good at filtering DC, which circulates in the primary, but not the secondary...similar to a 'filter'
YOU need to understand that it is moot in this case
we are not talking about the conductors, but flow of energy
but the reactance will cause phase shift, both + and - depending on C and L and freq
isn't that non-linear distortion?
