      Eggleston, J. F. (University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1985)
      This thesis describes the modelling of the major sources of harmonic distortion in electrical transmission systems, especially those of relevance to the New Zealand power system. The harmonics generated by the operation ...
    • Harmonic state estimation : error analysis and optimal location for power quality measurements. 

      Bhujel, Diwakar (University of Canterbury, 2017)
      The harmonic levels in a distribution system are becoming more important as the use of non-linear loads and new technology is increasing. Monitoring of the harmonic levels is important in order to manage them. Direct ...
    • Harmonic State Estimation and Transient State Estimation 

      Yu, Kan Chi Kent (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
      This thesis describes the algorithms and techniques developed for harmonic state estimation and transient state estimation, which can be used to identify the location of disturbance sources in an electrical power system. ...
    • Harmonic State Space Model of Three Phase Thyristor Controlled Reactor 

      Orillaza, Jordan Rel Cajudo (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2012)
      Harmonic domain models have been developed for Thyristor Controller Reactors (TCR) and other power electronic devices. Recently, these models have been extended to describe not just the steady-state harmonic interactions ...
