No Harmony in Harmonics

As the number of harmonics-producing loads has increased over the years, it has become increasingly necessary to address their influence when making any additions or changes to an installation. Read this whitepaper to learn more about the common causes, implications and resolutions for problematic harmonic distortion in your electrical system.

No Harmony in Harmonics

Harmonic currents generated by non-linear electronic loads increase power system heat losses and power bills for end users. These harmonic-related losses reduce system efficiency, cause apparatus overheating, and increase power and air conditioning costs. Read this whitepaper to learn more about the common causes, implications and resolutions for problematic harmonic distortion in your electrical system.
