(an-tag'ŏ-nizm),
1. Denoting mutual opposition in action among structures, agents, diseases, or physiologic processes. Compare: synergism.
2. A situation in which the combined effect of two or more factors is smaller than the solitary effect of any one of the factors.
Synonym(s): mutual resistance
[G. antagōnisma, from anti, against, + agōnizomai, to fight, fr. agōn, a contest]

n.
Biochemistry Interference in the physiological action of a chemical substance by another having a similar structure.

antagonism

An interaction between chemicals or therapeutic agents, in which one substance partially or completely inhibits or counteracts the effect of the other.

When choosing capacitor banks for both reactive power compensation and filter-compensating devices, it is necessary to build the frequency characteristics of the input and mutual resistances of the electrical network for analyzing possible resonant phenomena, both in the node with the source of the interharmonics, and in all other nodes of the network.
