Effective Harmonic Mitigation with Active Filters

Industry standard three‐phase variable speed drives draw harmonic currents from the three phase voltage source. These harmonics can cause overheating and premature failure of power system equipment. An active filter is an effective way to filter the harmonic currents required by VFDs and eliminate the harmonic currents and voltages from the AC source.

Power Quality of UV Systems

Active filtering solutions are being more commonly applied in wastewater plants. The elimination of the base linear motor loads has also highlighted the power quality of the UV systems – high harmonic currents and a low, leading power factor. One solution is to integrate active filtering into these systems, so they are do not adversely affect the overall IEEE-519 compliance of the plant.
