6 Nonlinear Magnetic Core Sources Harmonics characteristics Harmonics model for transformers Harmonics model for rotating machines
7 Harmonics characteristics of iron-core reactors and transformers Causes of harmonics generation –Saturation effects –Over-excitation temporary over-voltage caused by reactive power unbalance unbalanced transformer load asymmetric saturation caused by low frequency magnetizing current transformer energization Symmetric core saturation generates odd harmonics Asymmetric core saturation generates both odd and even harmonics The overall amount of harmonics generated depends on –the saturation level of the magnetic core –the structure and configuration of the transformer
8 Harmonic models for transformers Harmonic models for a transformer: –equivalent circuit model –differential equation model –duality-based model –GIC (geomagnetically induced currents) saturation model
9 Equivalent circuit model (transformer) In time domain, a single phase transformer can be represented by an equivalent circuit referring all impedances to one side of the transformer The core saturation is modeled using a piecewise linear approximation of saturation This model is increasingly available in time domain circuit simulation packages.
10 Differential equation model (transformer) The differential equations describe the relationships between –winding voltages –winding currents –winding resistance –winding turns –magneto-motive forces –mutual fluxes –leakage fluxes –reluctances Saturation, hysteresis, and eddy current effects can be well modeled. The models are suitable for transient studies. They may also be used to simulate the harmonic generation behavior of power transformers.
11 Duality-based model (transformer) Duality-based models are necessary to represent multi- legged transformers Its parameters may be derived from experiment data and a nonlinear inductance may be used to model the core saturation Duality-based models are suitable for simulation of power system low-frequency transients. They can also be used to study the harmonic generation behaviors Magnetic circuitElectric circuit Magnetomotive Force (FMM) Ni Electromotive Force (FEM) E FluxCurrent I ReluctanceResistance R PermeanceConductance Flux densityCurrent density Magnetizing force H Potential difference V
12 GIC saturation model (transformer) Geomagnetically induced currents GIC bias can cause heavy half cycle saturation –the flux paths in and between core, tank and air gaps should be accounted A detailed model based on 3D finite element calculation may be necessary. Simplified equivalent magnetic circuit model of a single-phase shell-type transformer is shown. An iterative program can be used to solve the circuitry so that nonlinearity of the circuitry components is considered.
13 Rotating machines Harmonic models for synchronous machine Harmonic models for Induction machine
14 Synchronous machines Harmonics origins: –Non-sinusoidal flux distribution The resulting voltage harmonics are odd and usually minimized in the machine’s design stage and can be negligible. –Frequency conversion process Caused under unbalanced conditions –Saturation Saturation occurs in the stator and rotor core, and in the stator and rotor teeth. In large generator, this can be neglected. Harmonic models –under balanced condition, a single-phase inductance is sufficient –under unbalanced conditions, a impedance matrix is necessary
15 Balanced harmonic analysis For balanced (single phase) harmonic analysis, a synchronous machine was often represented by a single approximation of inductance –h: harmonic order – : direct sub-transient inductance – : quadrature sub-transient inductance A more complex model –a: (accounting for skin effect and eddy current losses) –R neg and X neg are the negative sequence resistance and reactance at fundamental frequency
16 Unbalanced harmonic analysis The balanced three-phase coupled matrix model can be used for unbalanced network analysis –Z s =(Z o +2Z neg )/3 –Z m =(Z o Z neg )/3 –Z o and Z neg are zero and negative sequence impedance at h th harmonic order If the synchronous machine stator is not precisely balanced, the self and/or mutual impedance will be unequal.
17 Induction motors Harmonics can be generated from –Non-sinusoidal stator winding distribution Can be minimized during the design stage –Transients Harmonics are induced during cold-start or load changing –The above-mentioned phenomenon can generally be neglected The primary contribution of induction motors is to act as impedances to harmonic excitation The motor can be modeled as –impedance for balanced systems, or –a three-phase coupled matrix for unbalanced systems
18 Harmonic models for induction motor Balanced Condition –Generalized Double Cage Model –Equivalent T Model Unbalanced Condition

23 Arc furnace harmonic sources Types: –AC furnace –DC furnace DC arc furnace are mostly determined by its AC/DC converter and the characteristic is more predictable, here we only focus on AC arc furnaces
24 Characteristics of Harmonics Generated by Arc Furnaces The nature of the steel melting process is uncontrollable, current harmonics generated by arc furnaces are unpredictable and random. Current chopping and igniting in each half cycle of the supply voltage, arc furnaces generate a wide range of harmonic frequencies

27 Current source model Typically, an EAF is modeled as a current source for harmonic studies. The source current can be represented by its Fourier series a n and b n can be selected as a function of –measurement –probability distributions –proportion of the reactive power fluctuations to the active power fluctuations. This model can be used to size filter components and evaluate the voltage distortions resulting from the harmonic current injected into the system.
28 Voltage source model The voltage source model for arc furnaces is a Thevenin equivalent circuit. –The equivalent impedance is the furnace load impedance (including the electrodes) –The voltage source is modeled in different ways: form it by major harmonic components that are known empirically account for stochastic characteristics of the arc furnace and model the voltage source as square waves with modulated amplitude. A new value for the voltage amplitude is generated after every zero-crossings of the arc current when the arc reignites
29 Nonlinear time varying voltage source model This model is actually a voltage source model The arc voltage is defined as a function of the arc length –V ao :arc voltage corresponding to the reference arc length l o, –k(t) : arc length time variations The time variation of the arc length is modeled with deterministic or stochastic laws. –Deterministic: –Stochastic:

34 Harmonics Characteristics Under balanced condition with constant output current and assuming zero firing angle and no commutation overlap, phase a current is h = 1, 5, 7, 11, 13,... –Characteristic harmonics generated by converters of any pulse number are in the order of n = 1, 2, ··· and p is the pulse number of the converter For non-zero firing angle and non-zero commutation overlap, rms value of each characteristic harmonic current can be determined by –F ( , ) is an overlap function
35 Harmonic Models for the Three-Phase Line-Commutated Converter Harmonic models can be categorized as –frequency-domain based models current source model transfer function model Norton-equivalent circuit model harmonic-domain model three-pulse model –time-domain based models models by differential equations state-space model
36 Current source model The most commonly used model for converter is to treat it as known sources of harmonic currents with or without phase angle information Magnitudes of current harmonics injected into a bus are determined from –the typical measured spectrum and –rated load current for the harmonic source ( I rated ) Harmonic phase angles need to be included when multiple sources are considered simultaneously for taking the harmonic cancellation effect into account. – h, and a conventional load flow solution is needed for providing the fundamental frequency phase angle, 1
37 Transfer Function Model The simplified schematic circuit can be used to describe the transfer function model of a converter G : the ideal transfer function without considering firing angle variation and commutation overlap G ,dc and G ,ac, relate the dc and ac sides of the converter Transfer functions can include the deviation terms of the firing angle and commutation overlap The effects of converter input voltage distortion or unbalance and harmonic contents in the output dc current can be modeled as well
38 Norton-Equivalent Circuit Model The nonlinear relationship between converter input currents and its terminal voltages is –I & V are harmonic vectors If the harmonic contents are small, one may linearize the dynamic relations about the base operating point and obtain: I = Y J V + I N –Y J is the Norton admittance matrix representing the linearization. It also represents an approximation of the converter response to variations in its terminal voltage harmonics or unbalance –I N = I b - Y J V b (Norton equivalent)
39 Harmonic-Domain Model Under normal operation, the overall state of the converter is specified by the angles of the state transition –These angles are the switching instants corresponding to the 6 firing angles and the 6 ends of commutation angles The converter response to an applied terminal voltage is characterized via convolutions in the harmonic domain The overall dc voltage –V k,p : 12 voltage samples – p : square pulse sampling functions –H : the highest harmonic order under consideration The converter input currents are obtained in the same manner using the same sampling functions.

42 Harmonics characteristics of TCR (cont.) Three single-phase TCRs are usually in delta connection, the triplen currents circulate within the delta circuit and do not enter the power system that supplies the TCRs. When the single-phase TCR is supplied by a non-sinusoidal input voltage –the current through the compensator is proved to be the discontinuous current

49 Harmonics Characteristics of Cycloconverter A cycloconverter generates very complex frequency spectrum that includes sidebands of the characteristic harmonics Balanced three-phase outputs, the dominant harmonic frequencies in input current for –6-pulse –12-pulse –p = 6 or p= 12, and m = 1, 2, …. In general, the currents associated with the sideband frequencies are relatively small and harmless to the power system unless a sharply tuned resonance occurs at that frequency.
50 Harmonic Models for the Cycloconverter The harmonic frequencies generated by a cycloconverter depend on its changed output frequency, it is very difficult to eliminate them completely To date, the time-domain and current source models are commonly used for modeling harmonics The harmonic currents injected into a power system by cycloconverters still present a challenge to both researchers and industrial engineers.
