Engineering Power Quality with focus on harmonics

  1. Aug 18, 2016 #1

    Anyone got any suggestions/recommendations for literature either available for free online or books that I have to buy?

    My background:
    Electrical engineering student, working on a project that is about analysis of power quality with focus on harmonics.
