Problem 7.8: Harmonic Power Flow with one Nonlinear Bus and Two Sets of Harmonic Nonlinear Device Currents

To the three-bus system of Fig. P7.8 apply the Newton–Raphson harmonic load flow analysis technique. Assume that bus 1 is the swing or slack bus, bus 2 is a linear PQ bus, and bus 3 is a nonlinear bus, where the fundamental real and reactive powers are specified. In addition, at bus 3 the real and imaginary harmonic nonlinear device currents are given as
