Addressing Challenges for the Future Grids - Harmonics Standardization (2016–2020)

Due to the global demand for energy saving and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, utilization of renewable energy sources and efficient loads based on power electronics technology is increased in electricity networks. The negative aspects of this technology are very complex and not well known which affect reliability and robustness of the grids. The main aims of this project are to: a) develop advanced tools for a better understanding of power quality issues of the residential, commercial and industrial distribution networks in Australia b) investigate and develop novel techniques to improve power quality and reliability of the grids c) develop harmonics emission and immunity levels and modify the Australian standards accordingly.
