There is no doubt that a professor learns a lot from his students. Some of the work presented in this book comes from their research work done under the supervision of Professor Chandra at ÉTS. Professor Chandra has learnt a lot from his students doing graduation on power quality, the topic that he has been teaching for the past 15 years. He is thankful to all of them. Professor Chandra is also grateful to his wife Anjali and children Niharika, Radhika, and Avneesh to provide the support and the pleasant family environment at home. Professor Al-Haddad would like to express his gratitude and high appreciation to his colleague and friend Professor Bhim Singh who is collaborating with him since 1995 on a continuous basis. This long time collaboration with Canada Research Chair in Electric Energy Conversion and Power Electronics (CRC-EECPE) led by professor Al-Haddad started with Dr Bhim Singh first visit to Montreal in 1995 as a visiting researcher, followed by invited professor position, adjunct professor member of the CRC, and since then it is a continuous work between the team from IIT Delhi and the CRC-EECPE researchers.
Professor Al-Haddad also would like to express his gratitude to the following agencies who strongly supported this work: Canada Research Chairs (CRC), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Fond de Recherche Nature et Technologies du gouvernement du Québec (FRQNT), ÉTS, and Groupe de Recherche en Électronique de Puissance et Commande Industrielle GRÉPCI. He also expresses his gratitude to his numerous hard working researchers, his brilliant dedicated graduate and undergraduate students, a long list of more than 150 names, his colleagues in the electrical engineering department as well as those from IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and equally important to his wife Fadia, and daughters Isabel and Joelle for their support. This book would not have been possible without the excellent cooperation among the authors of this book and a number of students. Our sincere thanks go to all contributors, proofreaders, the publisher, and our families for making this book possible.
