Design of a Computer Code To Evaluate the Influence of the Harmonics in the Electrical Networks

A. Souli, A. Hellal


This paper aims to present the design of a computer code (HPFCODE), for
calculate a power flow and power losses in power systems under the
influence of harmonics, using the GUI in MATLAB. After described the
program was run for two networks IEEE 6 nodes and IEEE 14 nodes. The
power flow by Newton-Raphson method was calculated as the losses of
active and reactive power in the lines, respectively, where the loads are
linear and nonlinear (Static Var Compensator(SVC), Thyristor controlled
Reactor(TCR), and Unified Power Flow Controller ((UPFC)), The results
were almost consistent and show the influence of higher harmonics on
power losses in electrical networks.
