Low Voltage AutoTransformer with LINEATOR™ Harmonic Filter
The use of 6-pulse Variable Speed Drives and other static power conversion equipment has grown rapidly in recent years. With this growth has come concern over the level of current harmonics generated by such equipment. Harmonic currents and the voltage distortion these currents create can have devastating effects on a power distribution system and its connected equipment. Present methods of harmonic treatment on low voltage 6-pulse VFD applications where the VFD voltage rating is different from the service voltage, require a special replacement 18-Pulse VFD, or a separate transformer to match the existing 6-Pulse VFD voltage along with tuned passive filters, or expensive active filters. The innovative AutoTranslineator™ is the best advance in the area of low voltage passive harmonic mitigation available today. No other device on the market can meet the limits of IEEE STD 519 at an equivalent size, efficiency and cost. When the application calls for harmonic treatment for low voltage 6-pulse VFD applications where the VFD voltage rating is different from the service voltage, the AutoTranslineator™ is the only logical choice.
