Coal mining is one of the important economic sectors in Vietnam. Power supply systems of coal mines and open-cuts are complex. They have multiple levels of voltages and different types of loads. New electrical equipment usually works alongside with the equipment that is obsolete and worn-out. Power supply systems of industrial areas of Vietnam where coal is mined are characterized by the low power quality. In Vietnam the indices which characterize the distortion of both voltage and current waveforms have standard values. The article presents the findings upon the analysis of a power supply system of a coal open-cut in Vietnam and the electrical equipment of the coal sorting plant along with the results of the experimental studies of power quality indices and the non-sinusoidal mode parameters. The measurement analysis has shown that the indices of the 5-th and 7-th harmonics of voltage were over the limits. There are interharmonics in voltages and currents. The article analyzes the characteristics of active filters. It is possible to improve the power quality by using an active filter which generates both reactive power to increase the load power factor and harmonic and interharmonic currents to reduce the degree of voltage and current waveform distortion.
