You can use guidelines taken from various power quality standards.
For low voltage, power distribution, where voltage sensitive loads are mixed with
harmonic producing loads like rectifiers in motor drives, 5% THDv is a typical
guideline to follow.
For low voltage, dedicated systems, where sensitive loads are not part of the mix,
higher distortion might be acceptable. A guideline of 8% THDv might be
considered.

Check with the manufacturer of the gas turbine alternator to verify their design for
harmonic losses. Typically, alternators are designed based on a maximum
temperature rise. When voltage and current distortion levels are high, the harmonic
losses in the alternator will be greater. This will cause the machine to reach its
temperature rise limit at a lower loading level than rated. If you intend to operate
the alternator at its rated values and get maximum service life from the insulation
system, then the system distortion levels will need to be controlled to be less than
manufacture's design limits.

thank a lot Dear Jim for your great comment,


Actually in this DG micro-grid we have a controlled heater which made around 4%
harmonic distortion and it caused to rapture the gas turbine coupling, so refer to
IEEE 519 for below 69Kv , THD is 5% , that's I interested about, but I didn't check
the GTG recommended THD.
for microgroove should consider other THD rate or standard?

According to IEEE standard it can be less than 5% in normal area.

You should check individual harmonic distortion, sometime more than 5%.

about that i have no sufficient information ,i think Mr Jim have a good knowledge
about that
