Modern electrical equipment imposes stringent demands on voltage stability and power quality.
The power network can tolerate only a limited level of harmonics and other electrical disturbances. By installing passive harmonic filters in medium/high-voltage networks, several benefits can be obtained:
- Higher power factor, improved voltage stability and lower network losses
- Filtering of harmonics in the system to acceptable levels
- Lowering of resonance problems and amplification of electrical disturbances
A “clean” network creates much less strain on equipment and lengthens its life span. This results in a lower maintenance cost and the cost for replacing worn-out equipment.
ABB passive harmonic filters are the ideal solution to render medium/high-voltage networks more efficient and trouble-free.
