Abstract

The growing number of power-electronics-based equipment has produced an important impact on the quality of electric power supply. Both high-power industrial loads and domestic loads cause harmonics in the network voltages. At the same time, much of the equipment causing the disturbances is quite sensitive to deviations from the ideal sinusoidal line voltage. Therefore, power quality problems may originate in the system or may be caused by the consumer itself. For an increasing number of applications, conventional equipment is proving insufficient ...
