Determining harmonic direction
Harmonics are caused by non-linear loads. Linear loads draw a linear current that follows the changing voltage of the AC waveform. Non-linear loads draw current pulses periodically, which creates distorted waveforms.

The Importance and Benefits of Portable Testing
A Portable Appliance Tester (PAT) is an instrument that is dedicated solely to the safety testing of portable electrical equipment in accordance with recognized national and local standards. Depending on locale, these standards may have been enacted into law. They may be requirements of specific industries or trade organizations, or just a good idea. In many cases, manufacturers of electrical consumer products who wish to export to foreign markets will be required, sometimes by national law, to assure the products have been safety tested. If testing is performed at time of manufacture, it will save money, aggravation and ill will that could result from having the products fail in the destination country.

Pre-locating faults with alternative method to arc reflection
While the share of installed cables without a jacket generally continues to decrease, the unjacketed cables that remain continue to age. As they do so, it is increasingly likely that a fault will develop on these cables. It can be particularly troublesome to locate faults on unjacketed cables as normal Time Domain Reflectometry, or radar, based fault location techniques often do not work, due to the corrosion of the neutral wires. While there is no guaranteed action that would result in locating the fault, this paper will outline some advanced methods, based on field experience, that can help when locating these types of faults. This paper was an article presented at NETA in 2017 and will discuss the Impulse Current method, which does not rely on the neutral wires being intact, in both a theoretical and practical light.

Methods of fault location in low voltage networks
There are multiple ways to find a cable fault in a low voltage network, but no one method works for all situations. It’s only by knowing the pros and cons of each method that you can determine the most effective one to use in any given scenario and pinpoint the fault in as little time as possible.

Measuring operational low voltage networks
Low voltage cable faults are often unstable, so they can only be located when the cable is conducting live voltage. Testing under these conditions is extremely hazardous, so separations filters, as well as constructional safety methods, should be employed at all times.
