Abstract

A harmonic power flow algorithm which predicts the levels of low audio range frequency harmonics in a power system produced by several types of nonlinear loads has been recently developed. Specifically, the new method solves for the truncated Fourier series of bus voltages and line currents in a balanced three phase network with line commutated converters and fluorescent lamps. Unlike most previous techniques, this algorithm does not require the assumption of sinusoidal bus voltages or a priori harmonic load current injection levels. The principal objective of this paper is to demonstrate the use of the algorithm in analyzing voltage and current harmonics in a distribution feeder due to a single three phase, six pulse line commutated converter.
