multiwave: passive solutions for harmonics The load on industrial networks is more and more dominated by a high number of smaller and larger converters. They are used when purchasing new machines or when modifying present machines in order to increase energy effiency.
Controlling and monitoring multiwave passive is effected by the known compensation controller multicomp D6, which is provided with a specially developed program for filter circuit systems. multicomp D6 controls and examines contactors and fans, it monitors the system for overcurrent and excess temperature. Diverse measuring functions are implemented, as well as an error memory, which can be shown on the plain text display. Furthermore, it is possible to operate several systems in a master-slave-network.
The compensation power of multiwave passive is remarkable. For example, a filter with 250 kvar of reactive power of fundamental harmonics is able to withdraw up to 650 A of harmonic current from the network. Thereby, the filter effect is very broadband and includes the following degrees of compensation:
5th harmonic 85%
7th harmonic 43%
11th harmonic 32%
13th harmonic 30%
In order to guarantee this level of filter performance on a long-term basis, components of highest load capacity need to be inserted. Again, the components from our own production were most convincing. The high performance reactors were specially developed for this type of system by KBR. The known UHPC premium capacitors, offering an overload capacity of up to twice of the nominal current, complete the package.
Altogether, a consistent concept for a distinct improvement of your voltage quality at an unbeatable value for money.
Each filter system has to be adjusted to each specific application involved. Our technical department Power Quality Service is specialized on this task and will gladly help you with your project.
