How will the KMG filter protect my motor?

The filter eliminates the effects of dv/dt on the motor insulation by removing the high frequency voltage distortion generated by the drive output power semi-conductors. The modern variable frequency drive has revolutionized the use of the conventional squirrel cage induction motor; however, current drive topology can contribute to insulation problems in the motor. The KMG greatly attenuates the carrier frequency voltage distortion and lowers the level of line distortion.
