Power quality is becoming more popular in the electrical engineering discipline due to stringent regulations and norms. The power equipment manufacturer and system integrators are taking so many efforts to ensure that the reliability of the power generation, transmission, distribution and utilization networks is maintained all over the world. Keeping the importance of the above in mind, a special issue on power quality is proposed.

Subject Coverage
Possible topics include but are not limited to, the following:
  • Custom power devices (CPDs): analysis, operation and control
  • Voltage source inverter topologies for active power filters
  • Switching control techniques for VSIs used in CPDs
  • Control algorithms for generation of reference quantities
  • Design and implementation of active power filters (CPDs)
  • Algorithms/techniques for power quality measurement
  • Algorithms/techniques for power quality mitigation and improvement
  • Different categories of power quality disturbances
  • AC/DC motor drives and EMI/RFI mitigation
  • Variable frequency drive ride-through on sag and outage
  • Transient voltage surge protection
