3. “Harmonics are not a problem unless they are a problem!”

4. Harmonics 100%, 60 Hz 20%, 180 Hz 12%, 300 Hz 4%, 420 Hz 2%, 660 Hz 2%, 780 Hz

5. Harmonic Sources Power Electronic Equipment (drives, rectifiers (UPS), computers, etc.) Arcing Devices (welders, arc furnaces, fluorescent lights, etc.) Rotating Machines (generators) Most Common Variable Frequency Drives UPS Computer Power Supplies Fluorescent Lighting Harmonic Sources

6. Voltage Distortion • When current flows from other than an infinite source, the source voltage drops • The higher the source impedance or the higher the load current, the greater the drop

7. Non-Linear Load • Example: 1 switched mode power supply

8. 1 Switched Mode Power SupplyCurrent Harmonics 30A peak6x 5A rms Isc = 22000 IL = 5A Isc/IL = 4400 60 Hz3.6A 180 Hz – 3rd3.1A 300 Hz – 5th 2.25A 420 Hz – 7th 1.38A 540 Hz – 9th 0.74A

9. 1 Switched Mode Power SupplyCurrent Harmonics 60 Hz3.6A 180 Hz – 3rd3.1A 300 Hz – 5th 2.25A 420 Hz – 7th 1.38A 540 Hz – 9th 0.74A

10. 1 Switched Mode Power SupplyCurrent Harmonics 60 Hz3.79A This is with 65 kA available 180 Hz – 3rd3.35A 300 Hz – 5th 2.67A 420 Hz – 7th 1.88A 540 Hz – 9th 1.22A

11. Current Distortion vs Available Fault Current • 22 kA  115% • 65 kA  128% • Why is the current distortion higher with higher available fault current? • Is that the same situation with voltage distortion?

12. Let’s increase the source impedance • Remember, our power supply was drawing 5A rms • On a 22 kA source, the ratio of Isc/IL= 4400… essentially an infinite source • Keeping the same load impedance, let’s drop the source short current down (Isc/IL= 20)

13. 100 A rms Source

14. Voltage Distortion Isc/IL = 4400 22 kA source 1st = 381 V 3rd = 5.4 V 5th = 0.9 V

15. Voltage Distortion Isc/IL = 20 Isc/IL = 20 1st = 377 V 3rd = 9.1 V 5th = 7.8 V7th = 4.1 V9th = 1.7 V

16. Harmonic Distortion Standards Harmonic Voltage Distortion Limits IEEE Standard 519 – 1992 Maximum Voltage Distortion in % at PCC* Below 69kV 69-138kV >138kV Maximum for Individual Harmonic 3.0 1.5 1.0 Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) 5.0 2.5 1.5 * % of Nominal Fundamental Frequency Voltage

18. Harmonic Limits • PCC (Point of Common Coupling) is defined as the point where another customer can be served From IEEE519A Draft

19. Harmonic Limits Update for IEEE 519 The Point of Common Coupling (PCC) with the consumer/utility interface is the closest point on the utility side of the customer's service where another utility customer is or could be supplied. The ownership of any apparatus such as a transformer that the utility might provide in the customers system is immaterial to the definition of the PCC. Note: This definition has been approved by the 519 Working Group. http://home.nas.net/~ludbrook/519error.html From IEEE519A Draft

20. Equipment Failure and Misoperation Notching Overheating/Failure Nuisance Operation Communication / control interference Economic Considerations Oversizing Losses/Inefficiencies/PF Penalties Application of Power Factor Correction Capacitors Other Issues Metering – do you really have a problem? Marketing hype – buy my product! Specmanship - Misinterpretation of the IEEE-519 Standard Harmonic Symptoms/Concerns

21. >> than 519 recommendations especially in specs (drives for example) Voltage or current harmonics ?? PCC?? 102% Current IEEE 519-1992 Standard

22. Reduce Harmonics – Save Money??? Aside from the “power quality” issues (misoperation, damage, etc), harmonics also “cost” you in other ways…. • Cost of oversized neutrals (2x), transformers (1.25-2x), generators (1.4-2x), UPS (1.5-2x), k-factor transformers, etc. • kW losses in cables, transformers and other power system components (1-8% losses).

23. Symmetrical Components

24. Reduce Harmonics – Save Money??? • Motor damage, losses (heating) from “negative sequence currents”. • High harmonics = low total power factor (utility penalties). “Negative Sequence Current” • Tries to Rotate Motor in Opposite Direction • Causes Motor Losses, Heating and Vibrations 5th Harmonic Rotation 60 Hz Rotation
