Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to deal with the problem of symmetrization of asymmetrical three-phase delta connected nonlinear load. In the model of the three-phase sinusoidal voltage source have also been included inner impedances. The purpose is to obtain symmetrical line currents of the voltage source, to minimize RMS values of currents and to minimize higher harmonics generated by nonlinear loads. Design/methodology/approach ‐ This symmetrization of the system is realized by means of a symmetrizing system, which is composed of LC one-ports. In order to solve the problem the symmetrical component theory is applied. The structure of symmetrizing system is consisted of two components: parameters determined for the basic harmonic and the filter for elimination of the higher harmonics generated by nonlinear loads. Findings ‐ After symmetrization line currents of the source will be symmetrical with lower RMS values than before symmetrization, and the source will generate the greater active power than beforehand. Research limitations/implications ‐ This approach can be used for inertialess (non-reactive) elements in systems, where currents are periodical. Practical implications ‐ The results of symmetrization can be useful for high-power systems where LC one-ports can be used, e.g. for arc furnaces. Originality/value ‐ Application of presented methods makes possible to improve the working point of the system, i.e. voltage source can generate greater active power than before symmetrization and line currents can be symmetrical.
