Harmonic distortion is found in both the voltage and the current waveform. Most current distortion is generated by electronic loads (including battery charges for computers, UPS, ballasted fluorescent lights, etc.) also called non-linear loads. These non-linear loads might be single phase loads such as point-of-sale terminals, or three-phase as in variable speed and DC electric motor drives. As the current distortion is conducted through the normal system wiring, it creates voltage distortion according to Ohm's Law*. While current distortion travels only along the power path of the non-linear load, voltage distortion affects all loads connected to that particular bus or phase.
