In its broadest sense, passive filters have been a very potent technique for power system harmonic suppression because of their possible different frequency response characteristics that can achieve a certain required harmonic filtering target, also due to their simplicity and economical cost. This paper presents an application of FORTRAN feasible sequential quadratic programming to find the optimal sizing of parameters of C-type passive filters for minimizing the total voltage harmonic distortion of nonlinear loads, where maintaining a given power factor at a specified range is desired. The optimal design of the C-type passive filter as an alternative to the conventional passive filtering techniques is introduced, and a detailed comparison of the results between an uncompensated system and a C-type filter are discussed by means of different numerical examples, considering source and load nonlinearities, while taking into account compliance with the IEEE standards 519-1992 and 18-2002.
