Harmonic Solution and Troubleshooting
Harmonic Solution and Troubleshooting | We proactively tune our harmonics filter that absorb most of your plant generated and electrical power system’s harmonics. It hugely relieves your plant and machineries from the onslaught of harmonic distortions, that starting from downstream at load delivery points extents up to upstream with its interconnected power systems. While your electrical equipment are designed for a 50hz (or 60hz) frequency capability; harmonic distortions put addition loads on equipment, extents of which depend upon power system harmonics, namely Total Harmonic Distortion Current (THDi) and Total Harmonic Distortion Voltage (THDv) which are predominately in the regions of 150hz, 250hz, 350hz, 550hz and 650hz for 50hz for industrial and commercial systems.
Your electrical equipment are not designed to handle these high
frequency currents and voltages, unless they are appropriately
oversized, an option that apart from ending up as a fuel guzzler locks
up your investment cost with excessive equipment footprint in unutilized
capital cost. The reverse situation is mostly true and we routinely
find oversized equipment whenever we encounter a new client, and that is
precisely the reason we deliver up to 30% enhanced production capacity
with the same equipment footprint. That apart active harmonic filters
cost you 3 to 5% real energy (kWh) losses as per OEM catalogue, whereas
Encon tuned harmonic filters deliver you 3 to 15% real energy (kWh)
savings, depending upon how critical are your plant’s harmonic
distortions in terms of both THDv and THDi.
Peers in the industry somehow fit in, for PF improvement purpose, detuned harmonic filter, or active harmonic filter with or without STATCON, and do so where ever your available equipment overcapacity dilutes overall harmonic distortions in that part of your electrical power system. At such easy galloping, it can’t prevent even occasional equipment tripping or failures on account of voltage fluctuations/sags either from external grid sources or within your plant’s electrical power system.
With Encon tuned harmonic filters you can consider those power quality harmonic issues as solved. Ironically peer active harmonic filter OEMs invalidate its warranty on voltage fluctuations/sags related incidents, wherein Encon tuned harmonic filter proactively takes on the very voltage fluctuations/sags and prevent your process equipment from nuisance tripping and eliminates failures in electronic cards with ac/dc drives, plc, hmi, smps power supply, hard disk, software corruptions in industrial pc etc.
