    Abstract

    Power quality has become a matter of growing concern in recent years owing to a daily rise in use of non-linear loads at domestic level. In addition, fast growing technologies like distributed generation and electric vehicles are emerging as part of modern distribution systems. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate and analyze the power quality issues due to various non-linear home appliances to give a clear picture of the current scenario. So that future technologies can be accommodated in the distribution systems while coping with existing power quality issues. The experimentally developed harmonic models, of various commonly deployed domestic appliances, are used for the simulation of a practical distribution system in Electrical Transient Analyzer Program (ETAP).
