Active Harmonic Filters

Active harmonic filters provide protection from harmonic issues on site that affect power quality. On polluted sites, active harmonic filters can provide a quick return on investment as they act as harmonic correction units and protect vital equipment from harmonic problems.

Active harmonic filters provide a quick and effective response to power quality fluctuations and help to prolong equipment life, improve process reliability and reduce energy losses. Harmonic distortion, voltage fluctuations, poor power factor and load imbalance are among the primary types if power problem that can affect modern electrical systems. The increasing use of non-linear loads and renewable power systems can lead to increased instances of harmonics which can lead to wasted energy, switchgear overloads and heat generation. Installing active harmonic filters helps to improve energy efficiency, industrial plant productivity, reduced maintenance costs, longer operating life and additional electrical capacity for existing site connections.

For more information on our active harmonic filters call the Eco Power Projects team for advice or to arrange a power quality survey or quotation on 0800 612 7388, email us or complete our enquiry form.

Typical Harmonic Correction Unit Applications

Active harmonic filtering can be used in many types of installation and environments. Systems can be used to improve the power quality of variable speed drive-supplied motors. compressors, pumps, conveyor systems, shredders, mixers, extruders, winders, grinders, crushers, DC drives, welding equipment and uninterruptible power supplies.
