The quality of electric energy delivered to consumers is adversely affected by nonlinear loads that inject current harmonics into a power network. The current trend of growing power quality disturbances, which lead to premature equipment failure, presents an increasing monetary burden to society. This project draws a unique analogy between electrical power disturbances and vehicle emissions, providing the necessary leverage for governmental participation in solving power quality issues. Recommended solutions address the technical, financial, and legal aspects of the subject.
