Overview

Discover the essentials of IEEE 519-2022 and how it relates to harmonic distortion in power systems. The recommended practice of this standard offers vital guidance for nonlinear load-inclusive power system designs. MTE's presenter, Sarah Woods, will clarify the practical application of distortion limits at the point of common coupling (PCC), emphasizing its relevance to transformer locations in various contexts.

She'll also help you decode the calculation of current distortion limits, connecting transformer short circuit current to load, and explore the significance of meeting the current distortion requirement as prescribed by IEEE 519-2022.

Key Takeaways

  • Unravel the complexities of harmonics in power systems
  • Gain insights into handling nonlinear loads
  • Learn how various solutions can meet stringent current distortion standards
