Harmonic distortion in power systems is growing due to the popularity of switch-mode power electronic equipment. This equipment has recognized advantages, such as reducing weight and improving control and efficiency in power converters and supplies. A disadvantage of switch-mode power converters is that their lowest-cost circuit may burden the power system with harmonic loading. Methods to reduce this distortion are recognized, but economic incentives are yet to be realized. Standardization is the most effective means to influence equipment design and to control distortion in power systems. The authors compare the major European and American standards, as well as some of the electronic equipment design changes that are supposed to limit harmonics
