Harmonic filter,Power quality,Resonance


Increase in the number of non-linear loads has increased harmonic pollution in industries, resulting in lower power factor and more losses. Harmonics may also lead to adverse conditions in cases they match a resonance frequency existing in the system. To alleviate the problems of harmonics, tuned harmonic filters are used. However, design and installation of passive elements in power systems or industries requires special attentions due to the possible resonances that may occur. In this paper, a Tire-Rubber company is analyzed for a filter installation. Harmonic analysis is performed, and site measurements are examined. Cautions to be taken for design consideration are then discussed.
