What is CF (Crest Factor)?

Crest factor is the proportion of the instantaneous peak amplitude of a waveform, to its root mean square RMS value. The crest factor shows how outrageous the peaks are in a waveform. Higher crest factors show peaks. The crest factor determines the properties of an electrical framework like the immaculateness of a signal or waveform, and the ability of a system, for example, a power supply to output a particular current or voltage.
