Power Electronics Converter Harmonics: Multipulse Methods for Clean Power
Derek A. Paice
Harmonics generating non-linear electrical equipment is here to stay. There will be more non-linear equipment to be installed to serve as solutions to process issues. Computers and variable frequency drives dominate the types of non-linear loads adding more problems to power systems quality.
Power Electronics Converter Harmonics: Multipulse Methods for Clean Power is one book that deals with the assessment of harmonics in a power system and how to meet existing standards. The treatment of the author about harmonics is very thorough. However, sometimes the author tends to cut short some explanations that to be able to understand what the author is trying to say is to dig deeper into the text of the book. I was able to follow most sample calculations but in some sections of the book, I am still wondering how some results were achieved. This book is not for the newbie but for professionals who wants to expound their knowledge on harmonics assessment.
