Understanding Triplen Harmonics

wp152BlogPostImage-1Learn how triplen harmonics are caused, what they affect, and how to mitigate them.

 

With the push for energy efficiency comes the proliferation of non-linear loads whose overall effect on the power transmission system may not always be as beneficial as originally intended.

 

The triplen harmonics that are caused by nonlinear loads can cause issues such as excessive neutral currents, transformer failures, excessive heating of motors, electronic device failures, failed capacitor banks, breakers and fuses tripping, and communication issues related to RFI and noise ingression into the communication system.

 

This paper details what triplen harmonics are, what causes them, system issues that result from triplen harmonics, and best practice for mitigating triplen harmonics and their effects.
