Harmonic Filters and Reactors
Harmonic filtering can improve equipment performance and reduce energy costs by eliminating unwanted harmonics in electrical systems created by non-linear loads.
A Static VAR Generator (SVG) Hybrid Active Power Factor Correction system (HAPFCs) is a device connected in parallel with the load to be compensated. The device is a controlled current source which provides a current waveform in real time.
In our case they are high performance, compact, flexible, modular and cost-effective active power filters (APF) that provide an instantaneous and effective response to power quality problems in low or high voltage electric power systems. They enable longer equipment lifetime, higher process reliability, improved power system capacity and stability, and reduced energy losses, complying with most demanding power quality standards and grid codes.
SVGs have many low and high voltage potential applications where their use offers many benefits.
The increase of non-linear and other challenging loads in electrical grids present unique power quality challenges. As a result Captech has developed a Hybrid Active Power Factor Correction System that provides a cost effective and very fast solution to power system variations enabling longer equipment life, higher process reliability and reduced energy losses, complying with most demanding power quality standards and grid codes.
Captech’s Hybrid PFC system is a flexible, high performance and cost effective solution used to mitigate power quality problems generated by the equipment installed in electric power systems, enhancing equipment operating life-time, and improving power system capacity. These Smart Active Power Quality hybrid systems can be programmed to provide the following functions in real time:
The systems have the flexibility of a voltage range from 200V up to 690V without the need of a step-up transformer. Over 1 kV we use a step-up transformer.
