Harmonic Analysis for Low and Medium Voltage

We perform harmonic analysis using computer simulation by modeling the major power electronic loads such as drives and various power converters or grid-connected inverters. We have provided harmonic analysis reports for hundreds of power systems including water and wastewater treatment facilities, oil/gas pipelines, oil/gas drilling, and pumping, irrigation systems, casinos, mining, induction heating, arc furnaces, industrial facilities, food processing facilities, data centers, office buildings and more. We can offer our standard analysis & report format or follow the report requirements identified in your engineering specification.

  • Predictive analysis for harmonic distortion
  • Harmonic analysis report with our recommendations
  • Determine compliance with power quality standards, such as:

IEEE-519             AS2279

IEEE-1547           EN61000-4-7

BS G5/4

  • Power factor analysis, PF equipment sizing, ROI analysis
  • Technical recommendations to solve or prevent power quality problems
  • Analysis and reports follow IEEE 399 guidelines

Our Own Proprietary Computer-Model Library:

We can model complete power systems at the discrete component level and have constructed our library of time-saving modules for power electronics equipment including:

  • 6, 12, 18, 24 and up to 54-pulse drives 
  • Drives with an active front end (voltage source or current source)
  • DC drives and other SCR power converters 
  • Renewable energy grid-tied inverters

Information required for Harmonic Analysis
In most cases, we can perform a complete report from our office, eliminating the cost of an on-site visit. Typically, we will need the following information:

  1. Single line diagram with ratings of power sources & major loads
  2. Explanation of your power quality problems or concerns
  3. Power quality measurement data if available
  4. Operating conditions to be considered
  5. State your power quality objectives

Please Call us at 1-262-618-2403 or Email us or Visit our Contact Us page.

Following the guidelines of IEEE-399, we can perform a system analysis of single or multiple loads and provide you with a meaningful report complete with our explanation of the problem and the recommended solution. Drawing from decades of experience and using computerized simulation software we are able to analyze disturbance sources, quantify the magnitudes of current and voltage at any point in a circuit and evaluate waveforms and harmonic spectra throughout a system. Our in-depth reports can include waveform analysis, harmonic data, power factor, DC bus stability, motor voltage, resonance conditions, and more.

Comprehensive Harmonic Analysis Includes:

  • Predictive analysis for harmonic distortion
  • A thorough report with recommendations
  • Determine compliance with power quality standards
    • IEEE-519,   IEEE 1547,  BS G5/4,  AS2279,  EN 61000-4-7
  • Power factor analysis if needed
  • Technical recommendations to solve or prevent power quality problems
  • Analysis and reports follow IEEE-399 Guidelines

We can perform harmonic distortion analysis to predict the distortion levels in your electrical system and to help you to comply with international power quality standards. The analysis includes a comprehensive technical report illustrating key harmonic data as well as our recommendations to meet your PQ objectives.

Reasons for Performing Power Quality Analysis

  • Benchmark of present power quality
  • Evaluate compliance with Power Quality Standards or Specifications
  • History of power quality problems
    • – Failure of power factor capacitors
    • – Overheating of transformers, motors, cables, etc.
    • – Mis-operations of protection relays, overcurrent devices or control devices
  • Plant expansions where either significant non-linear loads or a significant amount of capacitance is added
  • Design of a new facility or power system
  • Identify potential PQ problems
  • Unexplained equipment operation problem
  • Evaluate the opportunity to reduce energy costs

These Services Normally Provided to:
