Overview

Harmonics are increasingly responsible for causing operational problems and damages to power system and the connected equipment. Preventing or fixing harmonics problems may be challenging without adequate understanding of the nature of harmonic – as testified by many cases where harmonics were wrongly blamed, with consequential expenses on harmonic mitigations poorly justified.

The focus of the 3-day course is to provide a good understanding of the nature and characteristics of power system harmonics, and to empower the participants with know-how in preventing and fixing harmonics problems.

Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

  • Explain the fundamental concept of harmonics
  • Recognize the various issues of power system harmonics for new projects
  • Identify the sources and effects of harmonics in existing facilities
  • Interpret requirements for harmonic control
  • Analyze fundamental harmonic problems
  • Conduct harmonics measurement and interpret results
  • Evaluate and choose the appropriate methods of harmonic control and mitigations

Learning experience is enhanced with many practical case studies, drawn primarily from instructor's consulting work.
