Technology has its limitations and problems. Power generation and transmission systems also have some intricacies. Major hindrances involved in achieving efficient power transmission are the effect of harmonics that distorts the required waveform. The paper proposed a methodology that detects the harmonics present in the current drawn by the induction motor by analyzing current waveform through oscilloscope. And then design the harmonic filter using MATLAB programming and implement it on a single phase induction motor for removing the harmonics. The starting and overall performance of motor is important to all the applications.
