Abstract: Widely distributed single-phase power electronic loads are an increasingly important source of harmonics in power distribution systems. The objective of this paper is to investigate the cumulative harmonic current characteristics of a large number of such loads. A complete analytical model for the most common load type is derived. This model is then used to investigate the impact of 1) interaction due to a shared source impedance, 2) variation in power level, and 3) variations in circuit parameters, on indivi…
