The lack of knowledge of the harmonic frequency behaviour of the extrahighvoltage (EHV) transmission network prevents the possibility to choose, at the design stage, an appropriate system for harmonic mitigation for current harmonic source loads directlyfed by the transmission network, as well as arc furnaces and facilities for thermonuclear fusion researches. The paper describes the methodology employed to determine the harmonic network impedance from current and voltage measurement seen at the CaminPadova node of the Italian transmission network, in which are injected the current harmonics produced by the reversed field pinch experiment (RFX) fusion facility; in particular, a simple method for precise measurement of voltage harmonics is presented in detail.
