Power System Harmonic Analysis provides a comprehensive input about harmonics in the power system and the corresponding theories and discussions. It gives sufficient information regarding harmonics - a growing issue in this electronic age, including analytical and modelling tools for the evaluation of power quality. On the contrary, the book was not able to converse about the different mitigation techniques against harmonics, which could have made it a comprehensive reference for both power quality engineers and students.

The amount of harmonics in the electric power system has increased significantly with the application of power semiconductor devices used in the electronics industry, commerce and even in the households. Harmonic waveform distortion problems include capacitor fuse blowing, inaccurate power metering, motor failures and overheating of transformers and cables. These things lead to making harmonic analysis a vital aspect in power system planning and design.

Power System Harmonic Analysis covers the Fourier analysis requirements, time and frequency domain simulation and identification of earth and conductor impedances in its theoretical contents. Subsequently, nonlinearities, controls, iterative analysis techniques and converters were also discussed.
