Hammond Power Solutions: Active Harmonic Filter – HPS TruWave
February 23, 2022
HPS TruWave active harmonic filter (AHF) (Powered by Mesta Electronics) is a comprehensive and flexible solution for harmonic mitigation. It provides the advanced control and proven reliability that your facility needs to solve power quality issues.
It monitors the load current and very quickly responds to the power system distortion as it develops. A corrective current is injected to effectively cancel out the harmonics required from the upstream power source. The result is a harmonic load on the power system that is acceptable, with more balanced current and voltage waveforms.
HPS TruWave operates at one of the highest efficiencies for any AHF, ensuring that losses are minimized. It is a critical addition to any plant or facility requiring IEEE-519 compliance.
Now featuring Waveform Display:
The LCD touch screen allows the operator to view a single AC line period of multiple voltage and current parameters of the active harmonic filter (AHF). This is an oscilloscope function that provides useful diagnostic information about the status of the system without needing to connect to an oscilloscope.
There are 21 available parameters for viewing. Both single capture and continuous capture are available. This allows the operator to track load changes and see exactly what correction the AHF is providing.
