    Low frequency, if designed for, is higher efficiency in
    the transformer.  Hence (as noted) the past (and, indeed,
    present) use of 25 Hz, 16 2/3, etc in specific applications.

    '50/60' rated components may be optimized for one, the other,
    or the middle.  Need to bench test, or get Really Deep into
    the data sheets to be sure.

    Other effects, eg 'bang rate', may favour high frequencies.
