    i am new bie in power sytem. I have found term "harmonic resonance" in power system, when i was gooleing, i found that resonance means XL = XC.
    but i can't figure it out in my head. what the harmonic resonance is?

    i have tried to find graph or figure that explain it, but the result is nill.
    would you like to tell me,

    This is one of the best non math oriented descriptions I have ever read.
    It's not very long and covers all your topics, complete with diagrams!
