Characteristics of the current emission for new developed devices are changing resulting in lower low order harmonics and an increase in high order harmonics. For the low voltage network this results in an increase in high order harmonic voltages, violating more often the limits for the harmonic voltages at the 15th and 21th order harmonic. To improve this situation harmonic current could be reduced, network impedance could be decreased or the harmonic voltage limits could be increased. Since there are no complaints regarding these higher harmonic voltages, this paper presents an alternative approach to update these harmonic voltage limits.
