Abstract

The paper suggests a new and efficient method for location of nonlinear loads on a grid. It is based on measuring of distortion power. The paper reviews different definitions of distortion power and proves that the method is feasible independently on particular definition. The obtained results of simulation and measurement confirm the effectiveness and applicability of the method. The proposed solution is suitable for software update of existing electronic power-meters or can be implement as hardware upgrade.
