This book provides coverage of generation, effects, and control of harmonics, including interharmonics and measurements, measurements and estimation of harmonics, harmonic resonance and limitations, according to standards. It serves as a practical guide to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as practicing engineers on harmonics. The concepts of modeling filter designs and harmonic penetrations (propagations) in industrial systems, distribution, and transmission systems are amply covered with the application of SVCs and FACTS controllers. Harmonic analysis in wind and solar generating plants are also discussed. Many case studies and practical examples are included to emphasize real-world applications. The appendices are devoted to Fourier analysis, pertinent to harmonic analysis, and solutions to the problems included throughout the book.
"This book covers in a systematic way the essential effect of harmonics on the power system. The content of the book is well organised: the subject matter is developed in a well-thought-out sequence; the text reads clear and coherent; and the generation, propagation, and estimation of harmonics are well explained. The governing standards to identify the allowed limits of harmonics, along with the remedial measures to contain and control harmonics within limits, are also discussed. The book furthermore features practical know-how that will benefit practicing engineers. All the essentials concerning harmonics are covered within this book."
