Harmonic Compensation Techniques in Electrical Distribution System - A Review

Ashutosh Srivastava, Amarjeet Singh


Harmonics in the power system is not new issue. This phenomenon has been
introduced by technocrat throughout in the history of electrical power system.
Maintaining the power quality in a power system is an essential assignment
due to increase in wide variety of non-linear loads. The current drawn by
such non linear loads are non-sinusoidal and therefore contains harmonics.
Therefore, it becomes necessary to compensate these unwanted harmonics
for better performance of the system. In this paper, a review of compensations
of harmonics in distribution system has been explained.
