The article deals with equivalenting of complex electrical networks of industrial enterprises. In the article the different methods of averaging equivalenting elements in power systems are compared, specifically, the method of moments, the equivalent section method, and the average value method. The current value of the capacitor bank as part of the electrotechnical complex of the enterprise is the main criterion for determining the equivalenting error of the electric network. The equivalenting in the presence of high harmonics in electrical networks of the enterprise is considered by applying the methods under discussion. Comparison of these equivalenting methods in the presence of high harmonics shows that the error in the calculation of capacitor bank current ranges from 3,8 to 14,7 %. In addition, the most accurate method for determining the capacitor bank overload is the method of moments.
