Harmonic Filter Calculation Spreadsheet
Filter Specification ToolIndustrial harmonic problems can be solved using a comprehensive approach including site surveys, harmonic measurements, and computer simulations. When mitigation of harmonic distortion is required, one of the options is to apply a filter at the source of harmonics, or at a location where the harmonic currents can be effectively removed from the system. The most cost effective filter is generally a single-tuned passive filter and this will be applicable for the majority of cases. Filters must be carefully designed to avoid unexpected interactions with the system.
The Harmonic Filter Calculations spreadsheet provides a convenient method for determining low voltage filter component values and duties. Electrotek Concepts® designed this spreadsheet for use with Microsoft® Excel. This spreadsheet approach provides you with a convenient method for entering required data. User specified data includes:
Calculations include capacitor derating, filter component values, capacitor duty with respect to IEEE Standard 18 (Shunt Power Capacitors), and impact of component tolerances on filter tuning.
Supporting calculations and a low voltage harmonic filter design case study are also provided.
