Power Quality can have a direct impact on overall performance, a fact often overlooked by many
companies. The fast and effective response of Active Harmonic Filters to the negative aspects of
power quality can improve process reliability, extend equipment life, reduce energy costs by
targeting system losses, and increased up-time can improve productivity. So much more than
simply complying with legislation, standards and grid codes.
The exponential increase in non-linear and other polluting loads in modern electrical networks
presents a varying set of power quality challenges.
Operations sensitive to power supply quality, challenging and shock loads, and weak supply
connections result in more demanding grid codes and power quality standards to safeguard the
reliability of electrical systems for both industrial and commercial processes.
Harmonic distortion, voltage variation, poor power factor and load imbalance are the most
commonly observed issues which not only impact on the cost of energy, but can result in
equipment maloperation or even failure.
