The main purpose of this article is to employ the C-type passive filters for maximization of the loading capability of transformers under non-sinusoidal conditions. For this aim, an optimal passive filter design approach is proposed regarding minimization of the harmonic loss factor (F-HL), which is defined in IEEE standard C57.110 to represent the loading capability of the transformers supplying non-sinusoidal load currents. With respect to IEEE standard 519, displacement power factor and individual harmonics & total harmonic distortions of the voltage and current are considered as constraints of the proposed optimal filter design approach. In addition, numerical results are presented to figure out that the proposed approach provides higher loading capability of the transformers under non-sinusoidal conditions when compared with the other two optimal filter design approaches based on minimization of the current total harmonic distortion and minimization of the voltage total harmonic distortion.
