The residential air-conditioner (A/C) is one of the most widespread load types for a household in the U.S., and it is reported that the malfunction of A/C load influences the performance of the transmission network. A real-time power emulator for an A/C motor using a three-phase voltage source inverter (VSI) is proposed in this paper, which emphasizes the ``point-on-wave'' characteristics of the A/C load.
