Presentation Description

Harmonic voltages and flows are brought about by non-direct loads, for example, the variable speed drives, uninterruptible force supplies, low energy consumption lighting and switched mode power supplies in gadgets, for example, PCs. Non- linear loads produce electrical sounds by attracting flow unexpected short pulses, as opposed to in a smooth sinusoidal way, presenting flows of extra frequencies which are responsible for reflecting back to the system, disturb the AC waveform.

What Are Harmonic Filters & How Do They Work? Harmonic voltages and flows are brought about by non-direct loads, for example, the variable speed drives, uninterruptible force supplies, low energy consumption lighting and switched mode power supplies in gadgets, for example, PCs. Non- linear loads produce electrical sounds by attracting flow unexpected short pulses, as opposed to in a smooth sinusoidal way, presenting flows of extra frequencies which are responsible for reflecting back to the system, disturb the AC waveform.

Slide2:

Types of harmonic filtering: 1. Line and load reactors: The Line and load reactors are used to provide current warning. They resist rapid changes in the flow of current and hence limit the spike because of the current pulses. 2. Passive harmonic filtering: The passive harmonic filtering uses a combination of reactors and capacitors for filtering out the harmonic frequencies. 3. Active Harmonic Filtering: An active harmonic filter provides moderate sounds by being installed on the line side of the wrong load. They basically involve in introducing current waveforms which are responsible for cancelling out the undesired harmonic mechanism. An active harmonic filter gives a viable way to moderate sounds, weakens the process-related voltage variances and improves equipment operating longevity and system limit. It can be a part of Harmonics filter and power factor correction . How does harmonic filtering work? Harmonic filters increases the amount of power required because of a decrease in power quality, adding to a lower power factor and higher vitality costs because of the reduction in productivity of the system. It acts to filter through the electrical music in a system. This can lessen overheating of the equipment, decrease annoyance stumbling of circuit breakers and intertwines and improve power quality adding to the decrease in energy costs.

Slide3:

So, the harmonics are vital products of the frequency, since responsive force is directly proportional to frequency, if there is an occurrence of slacking loads higher frequency infers higher reactive power consumption. Henceforth the proportion of responsive capacity to the real force or proportion of reactive power to clear power is very high for harmonics. It means that the reactive force would command the real force for harmonics. This implies that harmonics have higher reactive force than the real force. It infers that the expansion in net reactive force devoured by the load would be far more than the net increase in real force devoured by the load. This clearly implies the force factor would lessen due to Harmonics in terms of slacking loads. Energy efficiency has become a cost issue today. It turns out to be a part of the journey to guarantee energy accessibility and protect the environment. For many organizations energy efficiency is at the top of their agenda for a pollution free environment. Energy efficiency plays an important role in energy consumption and Motor efficiency and environmental management plays an important role for the future of planet earth.
