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 5%, corrects true power factor to over 95%, and meets IEEE 519 harmonic requirements.
Typical examples of passive harmonic filter applications include wastewater treatment plants, data centers, HVAC systems, material handling, mining, oil & gas, pulp & paper, and hospitals.
