Abstract
Electronic devices comprising of non-linear components (diodes, transistors, transformers, etc.) produce some number of harmonics in our power systems creating various voltage distortions [7]. As a result, several technical problems may arise for the device such as overheating and damage to sensitive equipment which would most likely lead to lifetime reduction to the customer’s devices. To reduce the likelihood of these undesired happenings, this project seeks to develop a digital power quality analyzer that would aid customers to efficiently monitor the power flow into their devices. This would help them detect some upcoming power system errors beforehand.
