The office equipment is important load components of a distribution power system. The majority of modern loads used in offices are non-linear electronics devices which can generate considerable amount of harmonics. An experimental consideration was given to harmonic characteristics of these equipment and loads by way of automated data acquisition technique using Fluke 435 power quality logger. The logger was programmed to capture essential power system data in a set of harmonic load bank such as compact fluorescent lamps, energy saving lamps (ESL), electric ballast fluorescent lamps (BFL), personal computer (PC) and laptop. The results obtained show a threatened total harmonic distortion of voltage and current for some types of loads that may require an appropriate mitigation measure to be put in place in the incoming supply to an office complex.
