## Top 3 Generators of Harmonic Currents | Electrical Engineering

Many of the loads installed in present-day power systems are harmonic current generators. Combined with the impedance of the electrical system, the loads also produce harmonic voltages. The nonlinear loads may therefore be viewed as both harmonic current generators and harmonic voltage generators. Prior to the 1970s, speed control of AC motors was primarily achieved using belts and pulleys. Now, [...]
