Minimization of Reactive Power under Nonsinusoidal Conditions
This paper extends “Considerations on reactive power in nonsinusoidal situations”  to compensation issues. It is shown that the shunt LC compensator can minimize the reactive power of an RL load only if one of its parameters, L or C is fixed. A method of capacitance calculation is presented and it is shown that the inductance choice affects the harmonic suppression. The complexity of a compensator for the total compensation of reactive power is calculated and a method of synthesizing such a compensator is presented.
