Para comprender los problemas de red con triples armónicos, primero vamos a tener una breve explicación de la

secuencia armónica de fase y los terceros armónicos.

Power engineers have traditionally used symmetrical components to help describe 3-phase system behavior. The 3-

phase system is transformed into three single-phase systems that are much simpler to analyze. The method of

symmetrical components can be employed for analysis of the system’s response to harmonic currents provided care

is taken not to violate the fundamental assumptions of the method.

The method allows any unbalanced set of phase currents (or voltages) to be transformed into three balanced sets.

The positive sequence set contains three sinusoids displaced 120 from each other, with the normal A-B-C phase

rotation (e.g., 0, −120, 120 ). The sinusoids of the negative-sequence set are also displaced 120 , but have opposite

phase rotation (A-C-B, e.g., 0, 120, −120 ). The sinusoids of the zero sequence are in phase with each other (e.g., 0,

0, 0).

In a perfect balanced 3-phase system, the harmonic phase sequence can be determined by multiplying the

harmonic number h with the normal positive sequence phase rotation.

For example, for the second harmonic, h = 2, produces 2 × (0, −120, −120 ) or (0, 120, −120 ) which is the

negative sequence. For the third harmonic, h = 3, produces 3 × (0, −120, −120 ) or (0, 0, 0°) which is the

zero sequence. Phase sequence for all other harmonic orders can be determined in the same fashion.

Since a distorted waveform in power systems contains only odd harmonic components, only odd harmonic phase

sequence rotations are summarized below:

Harmonics of order h = 5, 11, 17, … are purely negative sequence.

Triplens (h = 3, 9, 15, …) are purely zero sequence.

Triplen Harmonics

Triplen harmonics are the odd multiples of the third harmonic (h = 3, 9, 15, 21, . . .). They deserve special

consideration because the system response is often considerably different for triplens than for the rest of the

harmonics.

Triplens become an important issue for grounded-wye systems with current flowing on the neutral.

Two typical problems are overloading the neutral and telephone interference. One also hears occasionally of devices

that misoperate because the line-to-neutral voltage is badly distorted by the triplen harmonic voltage drop in the

neutral conductor.

For the system with perfectly balanced single-phase loads illustrated in Figure 1, an assumption is made that

fundamental and third harmonic components are present. Summing the currents at node N, the fundamental current

components in the neutral are found to be zero, but the third harmonic components are three times the phase

currents because they naturally coincide in phase and time.

Transformer winding connections have a significant impact on the flow of triplen harmonic currents from single-phase

nonlinear loads. Two cases are shown in Figure 2. In the wye-delta transformer (top), the triplen harmonic currents

are shown entering the wye side.

transformers

The delta winding provides ampere-turn balance so that they can flow, but they remain trapped in the delta and do

not show up in the line currents on the delta side. When the cur- rents are balanced, the triplen harmonic currents

behave exactly as zero-sequence currents, which is precisely what they are.

This type of transformer connection is the most common employed in utility distribution substations with the delta

winding connected to the transmission feed.

Using grounded-wye windings on both sides of the transformer (bottom) allows balanced triplens to flow

from the low voltage system to the high voltage system unimpeded.

They will be present in equal proportion on both sides. Many loads in the United States are served in this fashion.

Implication #1 – Transformers, particularly the neutral connec- tions, are susceptible to overheating when serv- ing

single phase loads on the wye side that have high third harmonic content.

Implication #2 – Measuring the current on the delta side of a transformer will not show the triplens and, therefore,

not give a true idea of the heating the transformer is being subjected to.

The flow of triplen harmonic currents can be interrupted by the appropriate isolation transformer connection.

Implication #3 – Removing the neutral connection in one or both wye windings, blocks the flow of triplen harmonic

current. There is no place for ampere-turn balance. Likewise, a delta winding blocks the flow from the line.

One should note that three-legged core transformers behave as if they have a

“phantom” delta tertiary winding. Therefore, a wye-wye with only one neutral

point grounded will still be able to conduct the triplen harmonics from that side.

These rules about triplen harmonic current flow in transformers apply only to balanced loading conditions. When

the phases are not balanced, currents of normal triplen harmonic frequencies may very well show up where they

are not expected.

The normal mode for triplen harmonics is to be zero sequence. During imbalances, triplen harmonics may have

positive or negative sequence components too.

One notable case of this is a 3-phase arc furnace. The furnace is nearly always fed by a delta-delta connected

transformer to block the flow of the zero sequence currents, as shown in Figure 3. Thinking that third harmonics are

synonymous with zero sequence, many engineers are surprised to find substantial third harmonic current present in

large magnitudes in the line current.

However, during scrap meltdown, the furnace will frequently operate in an unbalanced mode with only two

electrodes carrying current. Large third harmonic currents can then freely circulate in these two phases

just as a single-phase circuit.

However, they are not zero sequence currents. The third harmonic cur- rents are equal amounts of positive and

negative sequence currents. But to the extent that the system is mostly balanced, triplens mostly behave in the

manner described.

Notching is a periodic voltage disturbance caused by the normal operation of power electronics devices when current

is commutated from one phase to another. Since notching occurs continuously, it can be characterized through the

harmonic spectrum of the affected voltage.

associated with notching can be quite high and may not be readily characterized

with measurement equipment normally used for harmonic analysis.

Figure 3 above shows an example of voltage notching from a 3-phase converter that produces continuous DC

current. The notches occur when the current commutates from one phase to another. During this period, there is a

momentary short circuit between two phases pulling the voltage as close to zero as permitted by system impedances.

Arc furnace installations are notorious for having some of the most unconventional power quality problems in any

application.

Reactive power compensation is extremely important for many reasons in this kind of facilities, but it can also be a

more complex affair than installing traditional notch filters because of the uncharacteristic harmonics present due to

the arc furnace itself.
