Fig. 2. The upper scan from Fig. 2 a indicates that the Bus

No.1-6 kV has a parallel resonance condition close to the

11th harmonic, which is being imposed by the presence of

the capacitor bank at this bus. The lower scan indicates the

angle response throughout the scanned spectrum.

The impedance diagram for Bus No.2-400 V from Fig.

2b indicates that a parallel resonance condition also exists

somewhere between the 10.5th and the 11th harmonic

order (10.6 to be precise). This condition is consistent

with Bus No.1 since the capacitor bank located there is

defining this resonance for the system. The lower scan

diagram shows the angle response for the impedance at

this bus.

When we place the nonlinear loads at the appropriate

busses on the model and conduct the Harmonic Analysis,

the program shows the waveform that corresponds to the

source in question (Fig. 3).

RESULTS

The above list indicates eight harmonic interesting

results, which will be considered for this network. The

results are described as follows:

Analysis 1: Voltage THD at Bus No.2 - 400 V;

Analysis 2: Current THD at the secondary of

Transformer TRX 2;

Analysis 3: Current THD at the secondary of

Transformer TRX 1;

Analysis 4: Current THD at the 400 V - 500 HP AC

motor fed from Bus No.2;

Analysis 5: Voltage THD at the main Bus No.1;

Analysis 6: Current THD at the Capacitor Bank;

Analysis 7: Current THD at the 110 kV Supply;

Analysis 8: Voltage THD at the 110 kV Supply.

a These eight analyses will assume three alternatives:

1. no capacitor banks;

2. capacitor on line;

3. harmonic filters and capacitor on line.

For Alternative 1, if the breaker feeding the 780 Kvar

capacitor bank is open, his will enable us to study the

effect of the capacitors on the system while supplying

power to the VFD's.

studied (capacitors on-line), by adding 3 single tuned

filters, one tuned for the 11th harmonic, one tuned for the

7th harmonic, and one for the 5th harmonic to our case-

400V Bus No.2.

has been practically eliminated from the current spectrum.

The ripple riding on the current waveform corresponds

mainly to a combination of the unfiltered 13th & 17th

harmonic components. Since the capacitor's reactance is

inversely proportional to the frequency, it acts a sink for

these higher frequency components

In Analysis 7 case (Power Supply current) notice the

remarkable current THD reduction from 9.90 down to

2.42 %. Also for Analysis 8 case (Bus No.1) notice the

remarkable voltage THD reduction from 3.61% down to

0.50%. This result is well within the IEEE 519 Voltage

THD limits at the Point of Common Coupling.

The final step in this study is to re-evaluate the

frequency response at Bus No.1 and Bus No.2 with the

filters on -line. Fig. 8 shows the Impedance Response of

Bus No.1 which reflects the additional series and parallel

resonance introduced by the filters.
