What is Harmonics in Power System,Generation,Effect

What is harmonics in power system? A power system harmonic is defined as a component of a periodic wave having a frequency that is an integral multiple of the fundamental power line frequency of 60 Hz. distortion in electrical current and voltage waveforms due to power system harmonics is shown in below image  Fundamental and 5th […]

Suspension Type Insulator and advantages

Electrical Insulators are used in an overhead line to provide insulation to power conductor from ground and tower or supporting structure. Generally, insulators are connected to cross arm of supporting structure and power conductor pass through the clamp of the insulator. In this article, we are going to discuss suspension type Insulators and its advantages. Suspension type insulator […]
