"Complex" can mean different things depending on the level you're at. (Hnc = what?).


Trnasformers will change the phase of an input voltage; that's considered 'complex' mathematically.

Transformers can also distort an input voltage (generate harmonics). That's another kind of 'complex' waveform.
