The one-day Harmonics Simplified (DH 001) course provides attendees with a good working knowledge of harmonics, simple methods to calculate distortion levels, quick hand calculations to calculate resonant frequencies, detailed analysis using software and a detailed procedure of designing harmonic filters.
In recent years, due to emphasis on renewable energy, wind and solar plants have been integrated into utility systems. These plants generate harmonics and need a source Mvar, which is obtained from shunt capacitor banks. The combination of harmonics and capacitors is of great concern to host utilities. Therefore, host utilities would like to ensure compliance with IEEE Guide 519 to limit the amount of harmonics that can flow into host utilities. This has led to great interest in harmonics and related issues.
Presence of harmonics in a power system leads to several problems including loss of equipment life, damage to equipment, and misoperation of protective relays. Sensitive electronic/digital devices utilized in industrial systems, substations and power plants are prone to misoperation and in some cases can get damaged.
Harmonic resonance is a major issue in industrial plants such as steel mills and refineries where harmonic producing loads create voltage and current distortions. These distortions often get amplified if power factor correction capacitors are installed in such systems.
Who Should Attend
This course is vital for designers and developers of renewable plants, new graduates and utility engineers/managers who intend on hosting renewable plants.
