Harmonic Filters

The Schaffner harmonic filters from NHP are used to reduce harmonic distortion caused by non-linear loads.

A passive harmonic filter is installed in series on the line side of drives and as such are chosen based on the size of the connected drive.

Active harmonic filters are connected as a parallel load to the installation and typically require a power quality analysis to be conducted to determine the required size of a filter.     

 

ECOsineTM Active

ECOSine active

The ECOsineTM Active eliminates harmonic currents up to the 50th harmonic, improving power quality and reducing reactive power usage costs. The ECOsineTM Active’s flexible design allows different size systems to connect in parallel achieving greater compensation current. These filters can be connected either load or line side, however to combine units in parallel the CT’s corresponding to the AHF must be connected load side.

Once configured with just a few clicks, the preset line current will be permanently measured and all harmonics and phase displacements actively compensated. To achieve this, the ECOsineTM Active calculates the appropriate compensation currents within microseconds, which are then generated and fed into the network. Remote monitoring via PLC or BMS is possible via Modbus over RS485 interface.

Some of the key features and benefits of the ECOsineTM Active include:

  • Ultra-fast: Responds to disturbances in less than 300µs and eliminates them before they can cause damage
  • Super-compact: Each unit provides the highest performance in the most  compact package
  • Optimised for maintenance: The central modules in the 200 to 300A industrial models can be removed in less than 15 minutes.
  • Suitable for industrial use: With the IP54 protection class the ECOsineTM Active is resistant to dust and other environmental influences
  • Numerous Options: The ECOsineTM Active range covers specifications from 30 to 300A and 400 to 480V in either 3 or 4-wire technology.
  • Adaptive: ECOsineTM Active compensates for individual disturbance patterns in a targeted manner and automatically adapts to changing network topologies.

ECOsineTM

ECOSine

Schaffner ECOsineTM passive harmonic filters represent an economical solution to the challenge of load-applied harmonic mitigation in three-phase power systems. These filters are more commonly connected to individual loads in the plant rather than at the point of common coupling (PCC) since they’re application requires consistent loading for effective harmonic mitigation. Schaffner ECOsineTM harmonic filters are designed for the operation on the line side of power electronic equipment with 6-pulse rectifier front ends in balanced three-phase power systems.

Some of the key features and benefits of the ECOsineTM include:

  • Compact dimensions
  • Quick installation
  • Easily commissioned
  • Reduce harmonic currents to negligible levels (THID <5%)
