Adequate power supply quality is essential in managing electrical facilities, mainly for those that use electronic systems. Power supply quality is mainly defined by harmonic generation and supply continuity, referring to the number and duration of interruptions and voltage dips. The increase in use of electronic loads is causing an increase in electrical pollution in networks. Thus, it is necessary to adopt basic preventive measures to minimize electrical pollution.
