Professor Frank Leferink appeared in TROS Radar

On Monday November 22 Frank Leferink appeared on Dutch television in TROS Radar (Nederland 1), explaining the effects of nonlinear loads on local power supply systems. Please click here to see the full broadcast and here to see the item featuring Frank Leferink [in Dutch].

More and more supposedly energy-efficient equipment as well as renewable sources are connected to the power system in a so-called Smart Grid. The currents drawn by nonlinear loads are interacting with the power supply system and are causing electromagnetic interference. In the Power Quality and EMC project we identify and analyze these effects, and investigate possible measures for counteracting them.
