This chapter is intended to discuss the most general approach to harmonic studies, which can be applied to shunt FACT devices and to all devices regulated by means of power electronic switches, such as wind power plants. This approach is supported by international standards. Some specific installations may require special considerations that are not addressed in detail in this chapter; however, specific references are provided for further reading whenever these special conditions are identified.
