b. AC to DC power conversion equipment
c. Block diagram for VFD or UPS
d. Types of Rectifiers
e. The sequence of harmonics by rectifier type
f. 6-pulse rectifiers
g. 12 & 18 pulse rectifier distortions

III. Problems caused by Harmonics

a. Wasted energy, increased current & kVA
b. Equipment failure, Increased operating temperatures
c. Fuse blowing, C.B. tripping
d. Effects of harmonics on transformers
e. Effects of harmonics on capacitors
f. Harmonic resonance (series & parallel)
g. Harmonic voltage distortion
h. SCR voltage notching
