Analyzing the harmonic distortion in a distribution system caused by the non-linear residential loads

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Harmonic distortion has garnered a lot of interest in the recent past due to the high advent of the non-linear electronic loads. Moreover, newer technologies including distributed generation and electric vehicles are anticipated to be part of the distribution systems at a mass scale in the near future. This makes it of utmost importance to evaluate the existing power distribution systems and analyze the possible constraints. This research study makes an effort to evaluate the harmonic distortion in the distribution systems caused by the various non-linear residential loads.
