This paper is an extension of recent work done in harmonic power flow studies. The extension is inclusion of HVDC subsystems. An example using six pulse converters is given. Also, a simplification to the harmonic power flow algorithm is presented based on the accuracy of the fundamental frequency solution in the absence of nonlinear loads.
