Active Harmonic Filter Installation

Overview

A look at a successful installation of an "Active Harmonic Filter" at a Plastic Injection Moulding Factory.

The Challenge

Loss of Equipment / machinery due to high levels of harmonics.

The Solution

Implementation of a 100A AHF filter. After it was identified that there were high levels of harmonics. It was decided that a 100A AHF unit would solve the issues.

The Results

After the installation and commissioning, it was noted that all the disturbing harmonics were removed from the system. This was evident in both the Waveform and Spectrum options on the HMI.

Summary

Highs: Readings before the AHF was installed – High – 66.6% Readings after the AHF was installed – High – 14.7% Averages: Readings before the AHF was installed – Average – 21.8% Readings after the AHF was installed – Average -7.3% across the two samples.
