Passive Harmonic Filter for 3-phase VFD's Operating on a 1-phase supply
In remote locations such as farms, golf courses, oil and gas fields and residential areas standard 3-phase Variable Speed Drives are often used as Phase Converters to supply 3-phase motors when only 1-phase power is available. The Lineator™ 1Q3 is ideal for systems such as water and waste water, pump jacks, irrigation and many others.
The Lineator-1Q3™ has been designed to address this application by accepting 1-phase input and supplying a quasi 3-phase supply to the VFD. This will significantly lower both input harmonic current distortion (by up to 10x) and DC ripple current within the VFD. Reducing the ripple current allows for less derating of the VFD which, in many cases, will offset the cost of the Lineator-1Q3™.
