Electrical Power Quality
Good power quality is important to maintain critical operations, improve energy efficiency and prevent premature equipment failure.
HPS offers a full line of products to address power quality issues in your facility.
Power Quality Products
HPS TruWave™ active harmonic filter (AHF) 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 including THDi, THDv, power factor and voltage unbalance.
HPS Centurion™ S SineWave Motor Protection Filters are a robust solution to condition the pulse width modulated (PWM) output of a variable frequency drive (VFD) into a nearly perfect sinusoidal waveform.
The HPS Centurion™ D1 dV/dT filter provides protection to the motor by slowing down the rate of voltage increase and minimizes the damaging peak voltages that occur within the motor’s windings and along the length of cables feeding the motor.
HPS Centurion Line and Load reactors provide a cost effective method to minimize harmonic distortion, reduce line notching and mitigate voltage spike nuisance tripping with VFD’s. For motor protection, the HPS Centurion line reactors can extend the life of motors and reduce audible motor noise and operating temperature.
HPS offers Iron Core Reactors that are used in a wide variety of applications. The most typical applications are to supply inductance to mitigate current and voltage harmonics with non-linear loads. Reactors are used either alone or with capacitors and/or resistors in filter circuits.
DC Link Chokes
Filters and controls DC bus voltage and current in a variable frequency drives (VFD) and other rectifier circuits. DC Link Chokes smooth the current flow to the VFD and help reduce AC input line current harmonic distortion while absorbing DC bus voltage.
Drive isolation transformers provide electrical isolation, harmonic mitigation and short circuit current limiting. DIT’s offer these advantages with either no voltage drop or have the ability to change voltage to match system and VFD voltage requirements.
The HPS Tribune E drive isolation transformer is a high efficiency DIT required to meet Canadian efficiency standards. The Tribune provides U.S. customers with a high efficiency, energy saving alternative to the standard efficiency units normally provided to this market.
Medium Voltage Multi-Pulse
HPS is leader in custom medium voltage multi-pulse (12, 18, 24 and 36) solutions for variable frequency drive and other rectifier applications. Multi-Pulse isolation transformers provide an economical method to meet IEEE 519 harmonic requirements with medium voltage non-linear loads.
Low Voltage Multi-Pulse
HPS can supply 12 and 18 pulse isolation transformers and 18 pulse autotransformer solutions for low voltage variable frequency drives and other power conversion processes.
HPS Sentinel™ H Energy Efficient Harmonic Mitigating distribution transformers are rated for 600 volt class operation. The dual output, phase shifting Harmonic Mitigating Transformers provide extremely low output voltage distortion and input current distortion even under severe non-linear load conditions. Typical applications of severe non-linear loading conditions include data centers, internet-service providers, telecom sites, call centers and broadcast centers.
