Grounded in years of practical experience working and teaching in the electric, oil, and steel industries in several countries, this field-tested book elucidates the concepts and equations with many worked examples and various illustrations generated using current industrial software tools. From a general overview of the principles and equations used to describe and analyze harmonic currents to the fundamentals of power losses in harmonic environments, it offers detailed coverage of passive harmonic filters, harmonic propagation analysis, and alternatives to filtering, offering a clear-cut procedure to evaluate harmonic current propagation and assess their penetration into electrical networks.
