International Conference on Harmonics & Quality of Power 2020 – Dubai

ICHQP - 2020

In 1984, the 1st ICHPS (International Conference on Harmonics in Power Systems), the forerunner to ICHQP (International Conference on Harmonics and Quality of Power) was held in Worcester, Massachusetts. 62 authors attended this conference presenting 42 papers.

Over the years the conference has grown and the number of papers presented has tripled. The scope of the conference has also been widened to encompass all areas of power quality.

The importance of power quality management in transmission and distribution networks is seen to be increasing with the proliferation of renewable energy resources, energy storage systems and electric vehicles. Understanding of the potential problems created by new forms of generation and load technologies is vital to the maintenance of quality and reliability of the power supply for the benefit of all stakeholders.  The main aim of the conference is to provide a platform for a dialogue between academics, industry practitioners and government representatives to address power quality as it relates to green economies.

Theme: Power Quality in the Green Economy  – development of enabling approaches for sustainable power systems
