Active Harmonic Filter Guide

ACTIVE HARMONIC FILTERS

Active harmonic filters are designed for use in applications where a signification amount of harmonic mitigation is required.  Active harmonic filters reduce harmonic distortion levels to comply with IEEE Std. 519TM-2014.  Active harmonic filters correct power factor to near unity.

The Active Harmonic Filter can be incorporated with any type of non-linear plant loads, constant or variable, to provide low harmonic distorition and unity power factor to the plant utility grid.

Active harmonic filters (AHF) are designed for use in applications where a signification amount of harmonic mitigation is required.  Active harmonic filters reduce harmonic distortion levels to comply with IEEE Std. 519TM-2014.  Active harmonic filters correct power factor to near unity.

The AHF can be incorporated with any type of non-linear plant loads, under constant or variable load conditions.  The AHF will provide low harmonic distortion and unity power factor to the plant utility grid to help meet the ANSI/IEEE Std. 519™-2014 harmonic standards.

This high level of performance eliminates the possibility of high amplitude transient harmonics being reflected back to the utility, or to any other equipment, during sudden load changes. In addition to meeting the standards, utility costs will be lowered and the life of the equipment within the plant will be extended.

The AHF incorporates state-of-the-art UPS technology and the most powerful microcontroller and electronics available in the market today. Its design does not require detailed knowledge of the plant load or the type of harmonics involved. The AHF responds to the exact need as it develops.
