The industry has rapidly growth and energy supply technology advanced are become main factor which to contribute of the harmonic losses. This problem is one aspect that may affect the capability of the transmission line and also to the efficiency of electricity. This paper proposes a new scheme to allocate the cost pertaining to transmission loss due to harmonics. The proposed method, called as Generalized Harmonic Distribution Factor, uses the principle of proportional sharing method to allocate the losses among the transmission users especially for industry consumers. The IEEE 14- and 30 bus test system is used to compare the proposed method with existing method. The results showed that the proposed method provided a scheme better in allocating the cost of transmission loss, which could encourage the users to minimize the losses.
THD
) factor for the current and voltage
[7]
. The
THD
indicates the amount of content of the harmonic components either in current or voltage waveform.
Many approximate models and algorithms have been introduced in the literature that tried as accurate as possible to identify and allocate the cost of losses to each participant in the transmission network. In several papers have been exploited of the harmonic focused on the loss allocation due to the harmonic distortion. Power quality problem is one aspect that may affect the ability of the facility within the power system and also the efficiency of electricity distribution from generation sources to the consumer
[8]
.
The development of loss allocate scheme for harmonic distortion is to determine what harmonic loss should be accurate in PCC for all ICs. The system operator concentrates on solving the technical problems of finding proper incentive signals for transmission owner, while the load effort to encourage harmonic reduction.
This paper proposes a new method to determine of the harmonic contribute for transmission losses allocate. After the introduction in section I, the problem description an overview of transmission loss allocation in presented in section II. Section III explains and formulates the proposed method. A test case based on the 14-bus system is provided in Section IV. Results and discussions are provided in Section V. Section VI presents concluding remarks.

TLA
) should be as accurate as possible to all users. A widely used approach in
TLA
is the proportional method Pro-rata method is a technique to solve the problem of the
TLA
[10]
, which uses the principle of proportional sharing (
PSP
)
[11]
. The approach is based on the concept of the exact power that has been developed through the analysis of the circuit
[12]
. While, based on the load flow analysis, the method proposed based on Z-bus matrix of the network
[13]
. Then, to obtain accurately, the author in
[14]
proposed an approach using neural networks and other methods using the modified nodal equations to identify the actual power loss allocation for the generator and the load
[15]
. Meanwhile,
[16]
proposed a loss allocation method based on circuit theory. A new method was verified by
[17]
for allocating the user’s loss contribution in each branch, called as Equivalent Bilateral Exchange (EBE). The EBE method assumes that the users of the network have their own contribution on the system based on the contribution of currents power.
Finally, a satisfactory
TLA
scheme should have the following features; charging the user for the actual usage of the grid; providing to new scheme for consumer and power plants about scheme best that can relieve transmission congestion and losses; predictable; simple and easy to implement and can ensure recovery of the total transmission revenue
[18]
.
and the power equation:
thus, the transmission losses from bus-i to bus-j can be expressed as:
where:
and,
Where:
Basically, the level of power quality due to harmonic load can be divided into two types; load without distortion, where the load does not contain distortions, and the load with distortion. The utility total harmonic distortion factor for current (THDI
_{U}
) is defined as:
The utility total harmonic distortion factor for voltage (THDV
_{U}
) is defined as:
Meanwhile, the total transmission losses with harmonic component can be written as:
By defined the contribution of harmonic for each load j at Demand (D) as
MW^{k}_{loss,D}
, therefore we obtain:
Where;
And,
Where:
C
^{h}
_{j}
= harmonic share load-j of the total harmonic in load.
Let be the harmonic factor for each Demand (D) as follows;
Let, we define
f_{THD,DN}
as harmonic component due load-N, can be expressed as follows :
We defined the total harmonic loss component as ;
Can be re-writing as:
and
Therefore, the general formulation of transmission loss allocation with consideration of total harmonic distortion (
THD
) factor for the users can be written as:
Where:
L^{h}_{Dj}
as transmission loss allocate with harmonic contain for each load j. And
C^{h}_{j}MW^{h}_{loss,D}
as the harmonic loss contribute due load –j or demand-D.
While,
f_{TLA}
is transmission loss based on TLA methods, for example:
1.
Pro-rata
[17]
:
Therefore, using Eqs. (17) and (18), we obtained:
2.
Incremental Transmission Losses (ITL)
3.
Z-Bus Method
[14]
:
Similarly, using Eq. (17) for Z bus method, we obtained:
The component of function in (17) is called as “Generalized Harmonic Distribution Factor (
GHDF
)” where
f_{TLA}
= function of the Transmission Loss Allocation method caused by line parameter R, and
C^{h}_{j}MW^{h}_{loss,D}
is the contribution of losses for each load due harmonic
[21]
.
According to
IEEE std 1459-2000
, the established maximum limit of
THD
would be 5%
[6]
. This means that each load should pay an additional charge if
THD
in load more than 5% (for instance: industry consumer).
where:
then:
By setting the THD5% as
THD_{ref}
which is based on
IEEE std 1459-2000
, then the net total harmonic distortion for the load with 5% THD will be equal to zero or can be written mathematically as:
Therefore Eq. (24) substitute to (8), the total transmission losses with harmonic component in Eq. (8) can be obtain as follows:
Meanwhile, if the
THD
load is not equal to
THD_{ref}
then the total harmonic distortion THD can be written as:
Hence,
The IEEE 14 bus test system
Transmission losses allocation due to harmonic content, estimated using the IEEE-30 bus systems.
By using three methods: each Pro-average method, ITL method and Z method bus then Z method gives better results. The third method results are shown in
Table 1
. For example on bus 1, two methods of pro rata and ITL provides value 0 while the bus Z method losses are by 7 MW. Similarly, on the bus 8. Then based on
Table 2
, the method considered more accurate Z bus, hence become to consider used for compare the proposed method.
Compare of transmission loss allocation without harmonic distortion using the IEEE-14 bus systems.
Compare of transmission loss allocation with harmonic distortion of each load using the IEEE-14 bus systems
In
Table 2
, can be seen that the transmission cost allocation is conditional, where:
By using Eq. (25) above, that when the
THD
5%, then we obtain that:
By the above equation in (28), then power losses are calculated according to the method used
TLA
. This proposal was then tested on the
IEEE 30 bus system
as shown in
Fig 3
. Based on the proposed method, at 10% THD for example in L2 load will has resulted losses of 0.284 MW and increase it if the
THD
load becomes 15% so on. The result will give a value significantly when the
THD
levels greater will increase in load. While for
THD
5%, transmission losses is equal between existing methods with propose.
Based on the above, it will cause an increase in harmonic content losses on the transmission line. As a result, there is an increase in power flow in line caused by harmonics on the user. This condition causes a loss in the generation and transmission owners. For that, in order that the industry and gain the satisfaction and power providers are fair, then the harmonic components can be included in the calculation of the cost of transmission.
With reference to the
IEEE std.1459-2000
that defines 5% for
THD
of current, then the user can be charged additional costs due to harmonic, when has
THD
greater than 5%.
Further, the estimation results from the use of different IEEE bus systems can be a reference for transmission owners in charging penalties to users who have the load quality below of standard. They can also provide information for determining the transmission charge scheme with considered harmonic content by each user, so that both economic aspect and technical aspects in power systems can be covered.
This proposal can provide a good economic signal to all parties in the deregulated of electricity industry supply in the future, especially for transmission owners. Besides, the industry consumer will be encouraged to improve load quality and energy efficiency.
THD
will pay a higher transmission cost than other users. Meanwhile, the user who has
THD
content according to
IEEE std. 1459-2000
(until maximum limit is 5%) does not have to pay an additional charge to transmission owner.
This method also provides an alternative solution in the scheme for the determination of transmission charges for customers with varying load characteristic. Another benefit of this proposed method is that it provides economic signals for electricity industry supply, especially transmission and distribution company. The proposed method is suitable for the pool market in deregulated power system.

1. Introduction

Recently, the issue of harmonic losses is always disputable in the deregulated power system. The industry rapidly growth and energy supply technology advanced are main contribute for the harmonic distortion
[1]
. Many industry consumers that use electronic devices, including the use of reactive power compensation devices such as static compensator variables and UPS, are the main factors on the emergence of harmonic pollution on the distribution network
[2]
. For instance, Korean will be development of the infrastructure battery charging for electric vehicles which can be to contribute of the harmonic distortion
[3]
. The utility companies usually install the mitigation equipment to maintain the quality of power supplied. Once this equipment is installed, its cost must be recovered from the consumers who have caused the power quality (PQ) problem, i.e. harmonic distortion
[4]
. The consumer will pay according to the amount of stress (usage) that their equipment causes onto the mitigation equipment
[5]
.
The IEEE Standard 519-1992
[6]
has become a standard of PQ associated with the harmonic distortion caused by the source or load. This standard establishes a maximum limit of 5% of the Total Harmonic Distortion (

2. Problem Description

Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is an index that commonly used to determine the level of wave distortion. This parameter is power quality level on an equipment or system. The index of THD, which is shown in Eqs. (5-6), is the ratio of the number of rms value of each individual harmonic waves and fundamental wave, and is used to indicate the level of harmonic generation. There are two types of THD is namely; voltage and current THD. Basically, the electric power supply must provide good power quality like constant voltage magnitude and frequency. Meanwhile, by using electronic devices and non-linear load non-sinusoidal, which can result in poor power quality. It can cause of electrical disturbances like transients, sags, swells, harmonics, and even disruption in power supply
[4]
. And also, can be to increase of losses in line due harmonic component for line flow.
Generally, transmission losses commonly contribute between 3-5% of the total power losses in network
[9]
. Therefore, it is a major problem in the efficiency of generation cost. Several methods have been developed and introduced in the literature to identify the losses caused by each component in the electricity market. In the context of loss, the determination of transmission loss allocate (

- Case-1: Assume there are three loads of industry costumer withTHDL3, L4 and L9 equal to 5% ( according toIEEE std). Based on pro-rata method, the obtainedTLAshould be equal. This means that transmission owner will be charged according to pro-rata method original.
- Case-2: Assume there are three loads of industry costumer withTHDis L3 5%, L4 (7.5%) and L9(10%). Therefore, based on pro-rata method, the owner of the transmission line will pay more according to THD rate. This means that transmission users will be charged due to the additional cost.
- Case-3: L3, L4 and L9 have THD of 7.5%,10% and 15% according toIEEE std. Based on pro-rata method, the users will pay more for theTLAcompared to the payment in case-2. In this case, L3, L4 and L9 have higherTHDcontent, therefore they will getTLAmore than for the load in Case-1 and Case-2.
