# Harmonic Filter Calculation

1. ## Harmonic Filter Calculation

Which order harmonic would be effectively removed from a power system by applying a single-tuned filter with a 0.55 μF capacitor and a 500 mH inductor?

How do you calculate this?  Reply With Quote

I believe the formula is 1/(2PI*SQRT(LC))  Reply With Quote

Can you walk us through this calculation? I have tried doing it several times and haven't come up with what they say is the correct answer yet.  Reply With Quote

L*C =0.5*0.00000055=0.000000275
sqrt(0.000000275)=0.0005244
2pi*0.0005244=0.003294
1/0.003294=303.49hz
303.5hz/60hz=5.058 or 5th Harmonic  Reply With Quote
