Resistive Load

A resistive Load is a type of load that contains no inductance or capacitance, but only pure resistance, for example, incandescent light bulbs or toasters. When a resistive load is turned on, the voltage and current reach its steady-state without exceeding it first. Unlike Inductive Loads, resistive loads do not generate Back EMF but Contract Protection for cold filament Inrush current may be required.
