On waveform distortion in the frequency range of 2 kHz–150 kHz—Review and research challenges
Review article, 2017

The frequency range between 2 and 150 kHz has recently gained significant attention, triggered by standardization needs and increased emission in this wide frequency range. This paper gives an overview of the state-of-the-art concerning these so-called supraharmonics, and noticeably indicates the research challenges associated with waveform distortion in this frequency range, with emphasis on the following aspects: emission; propagation; interference; measurements; standardization; modelling and simulation.
