IEEE TO DEVELOP STANDARDS LIMITING INSERTION OF HARMONICS INTO POWER GRID
Standard for calibration and use of RF test gear to be revised
PISCATAWAY, N.J., USA, 25 April 2011 –
IEEE, the world's largest professional association advancing technology
for humanity, today announced that the IEEE Standards Association
(IEEE-SA) Standards Board approved two new projects to develop standards
that will limit the injection of harmonic frequencies into the public
electric transmission system.
Harmonic pollution is a growing problem caused by the
widespread use of power supplies and other non-linear loads. It can
result in power loss and equipment damage and it may also be related to
environmental safety issues.
