Harmonic distortion factor is defined as the ratio of the root- mean square of the harmonic content to amplitude of the fundamental quantity, expressed as a percent of the fundamental.
The PX8000 makes it possible to simultaneously measure the harmonic components of voltage and current waveforms as well as the harmonic distortion factor.
s (2001) study, we tested a six-factor solution (four cognitive factors plus one AR and one PF factor) against a three-factor solution (one cognitive distortion factor, one AR, and one PF factor), and a four-factor solution (one primary and one secondary cognitive distortion factor, one AR, and one PF factor), and a higher-order seven-factor solution (including a cognitive distortion factor underlying the four cognitive distortions).
Admittedly the distortion factor in Bulgaria is lower - recorded emigration rates of between 6% and 7% compare to figures of up to 50% reported in polls of the capital Sofia - but the overarching point remains the same; immigration polls are not to be trusted.

The instrument's front panel is composed of two windows: inside the first window is implemented the generating of a signal and the mathematical processing of it with the aid of derivation and integration operations, and in the second window is shown the graphical representation of spectral analysis for the original signal and the mathematical processed one, as well the difference between the distortion factor for the original signal and the mathematical processed one.
