Introducing the First Intelligent Passive Filter with Contactor Controls
The HGP filter is a drive applied 5% passive harmonic filter. High quality components and a robust design allow this passive filter to deliver best in class performance under the harshest conditions and in the most challenging applications. The HGP filter is suitable for all industry applications.The addition of PQconnect allows users to remotely access their filters to monitor and control specific functions. HGP with PQconnect is the first intelligent passive filter that monitors for power quality and controls your contactor.
Harmonics and Power Quality
Issues caused by harmonics may include:
Transformer and distribution equipment overheating
Random breaker tripping
Sensitive equipment failure
Poor power factor
HGP with PQconnect Advantages
- Filter status detection
- THID (total harmonic current distortion)
- THVD (total harmonic voltage distortion)
- V (voltage)
- I (current)
With the addition of PQconnect, the HGP harmonic filter features:
Generator Compatibility with IntelligenceThe HGP with PQconnect is now the only intelligent passive harmonic filter with generator compatibility. The filter autonomously controls its tuning circuit contactor based on your input system to ensure worry-free operations for generator-based systems.
The HGP communication with Modbus RTU provides data monitoring and status of the filter to your SCADA system. The filter will communicate informational alerts to ensure your system stays running and resolves power quality issues.
Industrial StrengthThe HGP with PQconnect is built in the USA, using high quality components. This allows our passive filters to deliver best in class performance under the harshest conditions and in the most challenging applications.
Filter Status Detections
Receive alerts before problems occur. With PQconnect, users will be notified if issues were to arise, including on the components of your filter. This will prevent unnecessary downtime and will alert the user when capacitors are nearing end of life.
Designed with Oilfield Duty in Mind
This field-proven passive filter has factory options available to meet your specific requirements including Oilfield Duty. It features components designed specifically for oil and gas field applications to handle the additional electrical stress. Designed for cyclical loads, these units will be available in Type 3R enclosures and will be for use with HP ranges from 40 to 200 HP.
Performance guarantee and minimum system requirements can be found in our user manual.
Low Capacitance HarmonicGuard Filter
TCI also provides a low capacitance version of our HGP product. The HarmonicGuard Low Capacitance filter has been designed with roughly half the capacitance of the HGP, but provides all the same options of the HarmonicGuard Passive filter. For more information on the HGL product, click here.
A desktop application has been created for PQconnect data – PQvision.
The PC app gives you visibility into:
- Real-time filter line/load voltage and current metering values
- Real-time THID, and THVD
- Voltage and current Wave forms
- Harmonic Spectrum
- Filter status detections
