Harmonic Distortion in Electrical Systems: A Primer for Non-electrical Engineers 
The quest to lower electrical energy consumption of HVAC and other electrically-driven equipment has led to the introduction of 'non-linear' electrical loads to the electrical grid. Harmonic distortion caused by increasing non-linear loads can result in issues in a building's electrical system. This EN provides an explanation of the causes of harmonic distortion by taking the reader through some electrical system basics and moving on to what harmonic distortion means and why it matters. It's intended for those with little or no experience with electrical systems.  (March 2018)
