ABB offers the broadest range of high, medium and low voltage equipment for switching and distributing electrical power. Among solutions engineered for better safety, flexibility and security, ABB's harmonic filtering equipments improve power factor, voltage stability and network losses to the variable speed drives. This means lower maintenance cost and lower cost for replacing worn-out equipment.
Thorough know-how and experience is required to design harmonic ﬁlters properly. Each plant is unique and needs its own special technical solution. Both system and component know-how are essential to ﬁnd the optimum solution in each individual case. An important component in the ﬁlter is the capacitor. Since it copes with the whole harmonic content, it must be designed with the greatest care.
A harmonic ﬁlter represents a dependable method of achieving high power quality in the form of stable voltage and low distortion. This ensures reliable power supplies and a high degree of availability.
