This paper describes a newly installed harmonics education facility in detail to teach students about harmonics related problems in a power system. A nonlinear load, which produces harmonic currents, and a harmonic filter, which is a mitigation facility, are merged into an existing power system simulator for advanced power engineering education. The nonlinear load is a widely used three-phase, 6-pulse controlled rectifier. The filter bank is designed to eliminate the characteristic harmonic currents. This paper also shows the resonant condition caused by shunt capacitors which are usually used for power factor correction. Several suggested experiments are given to teach students about harmonics related problems including harmonic sources, measurement, resonance, limitation, and mitigation. The harmonics education facility greatly extends and promotes the performance of the power system simulator
