Abstract

Harmonics in electric power systems may excite resonant modes due to the cancellation or near cancellation of inductive reactance by shunt capacitors. In this paper this phenomenon of harmonic voltage resonance is explored and an approximate method is described to calculate the capacitance 'band' which causes resonance. The method has been checked using the harmonic power flow algorithm. The method is based, in part, on dielectric stress criteria set out in IEEE Standard 18-1980 for shunt power capacitors.
