Application Guide for Solving Harmonics Problems


In recent decades, commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities have experienced tremendous growth in the use of equipment that generates “harmonic” distortion in power systems. Examples of this equipment include DC drives, AC variable frequency drives, rectifiers, induction furnaces, and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. Harmonic distortion creates a wave form resulting in higher than normal current values (and heat). Nuisance fuse blowing, circuit breaker tripping, over-heated transformers, and premature capacitor failure generally result from this condition.

If a facility utilizes any of the above mentioned equipment, an analysis by MZI can determine the harmonic distortion present in the system. Depending on the facility size and number of harmonic sources, the analysis can range from determining harmonic number and amplitude to a complete audit of the total electrical system.
