[här′män·ik ′lȯs]
(electromagnetism)
Energy loss in a generator due to space harmonics of the magnetomotive force produced by armature current, especially losses resulting from the fifth and seventh harmonics.

The output from the shunt active power filter is enough to excite the loads connected to the system with low harmonic losses [4].
Harmonic losses can be remarkably high in consumer LV systems and need to be estimated to make further improvements in the efficiency of the LV power system.
The limit values of harmonic voltages in the standard EVS-EN 50160 are rather too high, regarding additional harmonic losses in LV networks, and cannot serve as guidelines of optimizing the system performance.
