This revision includes the significant experience gained in the last 15 years with regard to power system harmoncs, their effects on power equipment, and how they should be limited. In addition, this document contains certain material dedicated to the harmonization of IEEE and other international standards where possible.This recommended practice establishes goals for the design of electrical systems that include both linear and nonlinear loads. The voltage and current waveforms that may exist throughout the system are summarized and waveform distortion goals for the system designer are established. The interface between sources and loads is described as the point of common coupling; and observance of the design goals will minimize interference between electrical equipment. This recommended practice addresses steady-state limitation. Transient conditions exceeding these limitations may be encountered. This document sets the quality of power that is to be provided at the point of common coupling and is not intended for application to individual pieces of electrical equipment. This document does not cover the effects of radio-frequency interference; however, it does include electromagnetic interference with communication systems.
