Phase Shifting Transformers to Cancel Harmonics

When there are several non-linear loads of equal ratings in a power systems, the use of phase shifting transformers could help cancel harmonics. After harmonic filters, phase shifting transformers are one of the simplest solution…

Harmonics and Neutral Currents

Before the advent of computers, variable speed drives, soft starters and other non-linear loads, the only source of harmonics in power systems are industrial plants using arc-furnaces. These arc-furnaces require so much power that main…

Transformer K-Factor Rating and Harmonics

A conventional transformer has restricted use in an environment where non-linear loads are utilized, unbalanced input voltage or load current exceeds 5% total harmonic distortion. K-factor rating is a value used to determine how much…

Harmonics and Power Quality

An ideal power quality for a source of energy to an electrical load is represented by a pure sine wave waveform of voltage. The term pure means that it does not contain any frequency other…
