Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a novice in using MATLAB. I want to calculate THD value from my experimental data using MATLAB. I have 10,001 data points, sampling frequency is 100kHz and fundamental frequency is 50 Hz (I'm not in USA). Below is my code. Could you please check that my code is correct or not ?

>> data = importdata('sample_1.xlsx');

% 10,001 data points, sampling rate = 100kHz

>> spect = fft(data)/10001;

% frequency of each element = 0, 10, 20, 30,...Hz (100kHz/10,001 data)

>> harmonic = abs(spect(11:5:201));

% here, fundamental = 50 Hz so, frequency 100, 150, 200,....,2000 Hz correspond to 11th, 16th, 21st,....,201st element of spect

% now, harmonic has 39 elements

>> harmonic_sqr = harmonic.^2;

% square each element

>> THD = sqrt(sum(harmonic_sqr(1:39)))/abs(spect(6))*100

% 50 Hz corresponds to 6th element of spect
