Harmonics in Electric Power Systems: Effects and Prevention

By |December 8th, 2017|Power Articles|

Modern electrical installations supply power to a wide variety of non-linear loads, where the current drawn does not have a linear relationship with the voltage supplied. In other words, even if the supply voltage signal is a perfect sinewave when measured with an oscilloscope, the resulting current may have a distorted waveform. The following are [...]

North America will attribute towards the Passive Harmonic Filter Market Growth By 2025

By |November 16th, 2017|Power Articles|

Harmonics in an electrical system/equipment occur due to fluctuations in the current or voltage. The propagation of harmonic frequencies is one of the most important cause of power quality problem in the electrical systems. Harmonic causes torque fluctuations, misfiring in variable speed drives and heating in the system. Thus, in order to ensure optimum power [...]

The high price of poor power quality

By |November 6th, 2017|Power Articles|

Power quality and harmonics have been a developing and growing concern as buildings have become more reliant on technology, the ever-increasing utilisation of digital control systems, and the drive towards more efficiency.  In recent years, harmonics from buildings have caused issues to supply networks, and authorities now require owners of large buildings to take measures [...]

Rising Adoption of Passive Harmonic Filter in North America will Boost The Market Growth

Low Voltage Harmonic Filtering Equipment – Automatic

By |March 22nd, 2016|Harmonic, Low Voltage Product|

Harmonic problems are becoming prevalent because more equipment producing harmonics is being applied to power systems. The need for continuous control of certain industrial processes has led to an increase in electronic equipment and motor drives, which produce high harmonics. Poor voltage waveforms, due to harmonics or transients can lead to unnecessary and costly disruptions [...]

Low Voltage Capacitor Banks – Fixed

By |March 18th, 2016|Capacitor Banks, Low Voltage Product|

Individual power factor correction is achieved by connecting capacitors directly to the terminals of motors, transformers and other loads. In this manner the network avoids distributing the reactive power absorbed by load. Individual power factor correction capacitors reduce additional losses caused by cable and transformer coil heating, and allows for the installation of smaller sized [...]

Low Voltage Capacitor Banks – Automatic

By |March 18th, 2016|Capacitor Banks, Low Voltage Product|

  Controllix Low Voltage Capacitor Banks provide a cost-effective, user friendly, reliable solution for power factor correction. They are a more efficient alternative to individual motor capacitors, especially in large industrial facilities. Controllix units are designed to provide power factor correction with a single installation on the main plant bus and are ideal for applications [...]

Medium Voltage Capacitor Banks – Fixed

By |March 18th, 2016|Capacitor Banks, Medium Voltage Product|

When bulk power factor improvement is needed and there are no concerns regarding high ambient temperatures or harmonics, fixed capacitor banks are ideal. Without switching or extensive monitoring features that are typically found on automatic banks, cost and lead time are kept to a minimum. This rapid response, combined with ease of installation, allows you [...]
