 English translation:dv/dt values Explanation:dv/dt is a standard mathematical expression relating to 'rate-of-change' (in this case, of the voltage waveform). It means that at switching points (encoches de commutation), there are great 'bites' taken out of the mains voltage (current, really), which leads to 'glitches' on the waveform, spikes (because the voltage rate of change is too high, effectively producing high values of high-order harmonics, and all this is very BAD !! I can give you a more technically detailed response if you need it, but I think that's QUITE enough for here!

dv/dt values

Explanation:
Pretty similar in English. dv/dt is the same in both languages, (check Google entries in both French and English) and refers to an evaluation of instantaneous current, with dv/dt being the rate of voltage change (in a capacitor for example).
