Research description:

The growth of non-linear loads in distribution systems has converted the harmonic propagation and its avoidance, in a critical issue. This reasearch presents a heuristic methodology to compensate the fictitious power in distribution feeders. It is, to avoid the circulation of reactive and distortion components of power along the system. In order to achieve that goal, the main elements of distribution feeders are modeled taking into account the harmonic behavior, and the minimum total loss solution is obtained by a clever heuristic search method.
