Harmonics Evaluation Generated By Electric Arc Furnace (EAF)
Electric Arc Furnaces (EAFs) highly reduce power quality of the network by generating disturbances such as
harmonics and flicker. The harmonics created by powerful non-linear loads and abrupt changes of such loads (EAF) can
considerably worsen quality of the buses voltage feeding of such loads. Electric arc furnaces (EAFs) are widely used in
steelmaking and in smelting of nonferrous metals. The EAF is the central process of the so-called mini-mills, which produce
steel mainly from scrap. This paper presents guidelines for the accurate evaluation of harmonics generated by electric arc
furnace. A field study is executed at No (1) Iron and Steel Mill. This Steel Mill is located at Pyin Oo Lwin Township,
Mandalay Division, Myanmar.
