The reason might be as per the Ansys help manual and under the strain energy section, that it (strain energy) includes plastic strain which we can not have in a harmonic analysis since it is a linear analysis (so only linear material, hence no plasticity can be included).

One can add perhaps some user defined results – see worksheet summary under the solution in the mechanical tree and there should be some energy results (e.g., ENERGYPOTENTIAL).
