Today, with the restructuring of the power systems, it is possible to implement a program, such as the demand response for the harmonic issues, and use customers to reduce the harmonic level of the network. In this study, a new method is presented based on harmonic pricing to control the harmonic level of the network. Given the fact that the power system is usually infected by the background harmonics, the basis for pricing is the harmonic contribution determination in order to impose a fine fair on the customers. Usually, the determination of the harmonic contribution at each harmonic order is done separately; therefore, a new index is presented, to sum up, the dominant orders in determining the harmonic contribution. This can provide an appropriate impression of the harmonic emission level at the point of common coupling. Simulation results on the standard IEEE 14-bus network show that customers are encouraged to control their harmonic level with a fair harmonic pricing, otherwise, the independent system operator can install harmonic filters at appropriate buses, using the fines received from the customers.
