A Benchmark Test System to Evaluate Methods of Harmonic Contribution Determination | IEEE Xplore

A Benchmark Test System to Evaluate Methods of Harmonic Contribution Determination Published via IEEE Xplore Abstract Harmonic distortions at a point of common coupling (PCC) are caused by the harmonic sources in both supply system and customer facilities. In order to verify compliance with harmonic limits for an operating facility, it is essential to determine the contribution of a facility to the harmonic distortions measured at the PCC. Over th...
