Early power equipment was designed to withstand disturbances such as lightning, short circuits, and sudden overloads without extra expenditure. Current power electronics (PE) prices would be much higher if the equipment was designed with the same robustness. Pollution has been introduced into power systems by nonlinear loads such as transformers and saturated coils; however, perturbation rate has never reached the present levels. Due to its nonlinear characteristics and fast switching, PE create most of the pollution issues. This article shows how PE and electric power quality (PQ) are related in almost every aspect of commercial, domestic, and industrial application.
