In this paper, the transient overvoltage suppression capability and harmonic filtering performance of C-type 2nd harmonic filters (HFs) are optimized by using two-stage damping resistors; one is permanently connected to the filter circuit, while the other one is switched on by back-to-back connected thyristors during furnace transformer and HF energization periods. However, in conventional C-type 2nd HFs, there is only one damping resistor, which is permanently connected to the filter circuit. In conventional designs, either the filtering performance is maximized or transient overvoltage suppression capability is enhanced or a compromise is made between these two objectives. This new configuration of C-type 2nd HFs has been applied to a sample iron and steel plant in which two ladle refining furnaces are in operation. For this purpose, an static var compensation system has been designed and installed, which is composed of a thyristor-controlled reactor, a 3rd HF, and the new C-type 2nd HF configuration proposed in this paper. The results of field tests and simulation studies show that the proposed C-type 2nd HF configuration gives much better results than conventional designs.

Real-Time Detection of Interharmonics and Harmonics of AC Electric Arc Furnaces on GPU Framework
Uz-Logoglu, Eda; Salor, Ozgul; Ermiş, Muammer (2019-11-01)
In this paper, a method based on the multiple synchronous reference frame analysis is recommended and implemented to detect time-varying harmonics and interharmonics of rapidly fluctuating asymmetrical industrial loads. The experimental work has been carried out on a typical three-phase alternating current arc furnace installation. In the recommended method, the reference frame is rotated in both directions at speeds corresponding to the positive and negative sequences of all harmonics and all interharmonic...
Design of Selective Linear Phase Cross-Coupled Dielectric Resonator Filters
Ozturk, Onur Ozan; Oruc, Sacid; Alicioglu, Bulent; Yıldırım, Nevzat (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a highly selective linear phase filter is designed and implemented in cross-coupled form using dielectric resonators in Ku band to be used as a channel filter in IMUX of a satellite receiver. Extreme delay flatness is required: 1.5 nS delay ripple over 60 % of the passband and 12 nS near the band edges. The initial design is carried out as 10 resonator symmetric cross-coupled filter with all ideal inverter couplings realizing two finite transmission zeros (FTZ) satisfying also the delay flatn...
Online Characterization of Interharmonics and Harmonics of AC Electric Arc Furnaces by Multiple Synchronous Reference Frame Analysis
Uz-Logoglu, Eda; Salor, Ozgul; Ermiş, Muammer (2016-05-01)
In this paper, a multiple synchronous reference frame (MSRF) analysis framework is developed to determine the positive-and negative-sequence components of all interharmonic and harmonic currents produced by alternating current electric arc furnace (AC EAF) installations, which can be considered as balanced but asymmetrical three-phase, three-wire loads on the power system. The aim of developing the MSRF analysis framework is twofold; deep understanding of the EAF characteristics, and fast and accurate gener...
High Performance Harmonic Isolation By Means of The Single-phase Series Active Filter Employing The Waveform Reconstruction Method
Senturk, Osman S.; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2009-09-24)
This paper proposes the Waveform Reconstruction Method (WRM), which is utilized in the single-phase Series Active Filter's (SAF's) control algorithm, in order to extract the load harmonic voltage component of voltage harmonic type single-phase diode rectifier loads. Employing WRM and the line current sampling delay reduction method (SDRM), a single-phase SAF compensated system provides higher harmonic isolation performance and higher stability margins compared to the system using conventional synchronous re...
