Managing Power System Harmonics for Underground Mines

Phase-shifting transformers can be used as part of the development strategy for the mine’s power system, as they eliminate some of the harmonics generated by electronic equipment. This is a simple, effective and economic way of limiting power system harmonics, a solution proven time and again in numerous industrial applications.

Two Modern Power Quality Issues HarmonicsGrounding

We call these multiple frequencies harmonics. The second harmonic is two times 60 Hertz, or 120 Hertz. The third harmonic is 180 Hertz and so on. In our three phase power systems, the “even” harmonics (second, fourth, sixth, etc.) cancel, so we only need deal with the “odd” harmonics. Refer to Figure 4 to see what these harmonics look like.
