In the previous Harmonics article we discussed the basic concepts of harmonics, its causes, its effects and ways of mitigation. In continuation and delving deeper into the topic, let us understand some other important phenomena as well. While striding the path of saving power as well as money using power capacitors, we might end up spending more money that what we save, owing to the behavior and interaction of capacitances-inductances in a system.
Their interaction triggers a couple of undesired phenomena namely Harmonic amplification and harmonic resonance, which are discussed in detail in this article.
