Mitigation of Distribution Feeder Harmonics by Passive Techniques

Assess the effectiveness of passive techniques to mitigate harmonics from distributed sources on residential feeders. Passive mitigations evaluated included:

  1. Optimal sizing and placement of distribution capacitors.
  2. Tuned filters.
  3. Grounded-wye delta transformers (to shunt zero-sequence harmonics).
