Project: T214700 #5182

The objective of this project is to establish a set of strategies that will enable project sponsors to deal with the challenges in a confident and persuasive manner. The strategies include (1) solid knowledge on the nature and characteristics of harmonic distortions in modern distribution systems; (2) good understanding on how the harmonics can affect equipment and customers and how to quantify the imapcts; (3) various means available to mitigate the problems; (4) methods of cost-benefit analysis and economic-based justifications for problem mitigation.
