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.
Despite heavy growth, over the years character of the conference has remained the same: basically academic with high technical standards with some practical/industrial emphasis. Papers are generally at the cutting edge of theoretical development.
