Harmonic analysis currently plays an important role for the power quality analysis because the non-linear loads, as source of the harmonic distortion, have significantly increased. The harmonic distortion influences power quality in power systems such as overheating of electrical equipment and aging of electrical equipment. Therefore, non-linear loads should be monitored in real time. This research proposes the design and implementation of the prototype current harmonic analysis that can be applied in real time based on S-transform Method. The equipment of this prototype can be explained as follows: CT-235, TZ2L9 and CT for KWH meters as current sensor, microcontroller AT mega 8535 as data acquisition, and Visual Basic software as displaying current waveform, current spectrum, rms current value, and total harmonic distortion (THD) for current. S-transform method is used to obtain the THD for current. The experimental result is validated by FLUKE 43B and the THD for current is accurately measured.
