V.G. Kuznetsov is a founder of the scientific direction of optimal control of electromagnetic processes in multiphase systems with the sources of distortion. Widely known methods and means developed by V.G. Kuznetsov to limit ferroresonance overvoltages in high-voltage power networks with effective neutral grounding. The methods of synthesis of multiphase phase-shifting circuits proposed by V.G. Kuznetsov allowed to create effective devices to ensure electromagnetic compatibility, which are widely used in Ukraine, CIS countries, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and others.
