New HPS Centurion P Passive Harmonic Filter
Hammond Power Solutions (HPS) has a new addition to their line of power quality products – HPS Centurion P Passive Harmonic Filter.
It is specifically engineered to mitigate harmonic currents created by non-linear loads. The initial product release has ratings from 5 to 500 horsepower. It improves power quality by simultaneously reducing harmonics and improving true power factor, resulting in an efficient and reliable solution.
HPS Centurion P consists of reactors and capacitors in an LCL arrangement designed to reduce a broad range of harmonics associated with variable frequency drives and other three phase rectifiers.
The advanced HPS design delivers superior performance compared to a traditional harmonic filter by reducing harmonic current distortion to less than five per cent, corrects true power factor to over 95 per cent, and meets IEEE 519 harmonic requirements.
Typical examples of passive harmonic filter applications include wastewater treatment plants, data centres, HVAC systems, material handling, mining, oil & gas, pulp & paper, and hospitals.
