  4. 4. The coefficients an , bn determine the magnitude of the harmonic components. From the data of the coefficients, we can obtain two spectra related to these coefficients: 1.Magnitude spectrum: shows the magnitude of different frequency components. 2.Phase spectrum: shows the phase of different harmonic components. 4
  5. 5. Load Characterization: 1.Linear time invariant loads :application of sinusoidal voltage results in sinusoidal current. They display a constant steady state impedance. Eg: Incandescent lighting, Transformers and Rotating machines under normal operating conditions. 2.Non-Linear loads : application of sinusoidal voltage results in a non-sinusoidal current. They do not exhibit constant impedance during the entire period. Also non-linear loads may draw even a discontinuous current. 5

  13. 13. Effects of Harmonics ☞Increased Cu loss leading to Excessive heating. ☞Harmonic Torques. ☞Voltage distortion in weak system. ☞Harmonic voltages increase hysteresis and eddy current losses, also additional I2R losses mainly in Converter transformers.(Transformer derating) ☞Power factor also deteriorates. ☞Phenomenon of Flicker. ☞Excessive neutral currents. ☞Effects measuring instruments. ☞Misoperation of relays.(False tripping of ground relay due to triplen harmonics) 13

  18. 18. Methods to mitigate Harmonics 1.Passive filters. 2.Active filters. Filters are used to suppress harmonics as well as to support reactive power. 3.Operation with higher pulse number. 4.Using K-factor transformers. 18
  19. 19. Passive Filters 1.Single tuned filter: Based on series resonance of RLC circuit. The circuit is designed to resonate at the frequency equal to the frequency of the component which needs to be filtered. It is confined to a particular frequency. 19
  20. 20. 2.Double tuned filter: This filter is tuned to two frequencies equal to the frequency of the significant harmonic components in the magnitude spectrum. 20
  21. 21. 3.High pass filters: These filters are designed such that all the components of frequencies higher than a particular frequency are filtered. Passive filters are cheap, easy design and reliable. But they cause resonance problems, fixed reactive power compensation and large size. 21

  23. 23. Active Filters Active power filters are Power electronic converters to inject harmonic currents into the system. They can eliminate voltage and current harmonics; compensate for reactive power. No resonance problems, can support variable reactive power compensation. Expensive, complex control. Active power filters can be classified as: 1.Based on type of power electronic converter: a)Current source converter(CSC) b)Voltage source converter(VSC) 2.Based on topology of converter: a) Shunt filter b)Series filter c)Hybrid filter 23
  24. 24. Voltage source converter Current source converter 24
  25. 25. Active shunt filter The harmonic current is supplied by the shunt active filter locally at the point where it is connected. The converter is issued control signals based on monitored values of current. This will ensure that the current drawn from PCC will be sinusoidal and other loads are unaffected. 25
  26. 26. Active Series filter Voltages are injected in order to reduce the harmonics, by controlling the Converter. 26
  27. 27. Hybrid active filter It is a combination of series active filter and shunt passive filter. 27
  28. 28. Conclusion It is essential to know the effects of the harmonics, sources of the harmonics for a power engineer to ensure that the systems will work well within the safety zone, owing to standards. Also, the various harmonic mitigation techniques discussed are to be understood well for a design engineer to protect the power system from harmonics. 28
