Solving power system harmonic resonance; improving power quality and eliminating electrical failures

Abstract: An Electrical Arc Furnace in the vicinity of a hyperactive railway traction line was facing an unusual power quality harmonic distortion problem. The Gigantic 22kA copper bus bar used to overheat visibly red-hot, vibrate audibly loud loosening its nuts and bolts and wear out the bus bar's affected plates.

Comprehensive Power Quality & Harmonic Audit Study with solutions in a large tyre manufacturing plant

Abstract: Large continuous process plants are increasingly resorting to use of non linear loads (NLL) such as DC drives, variable speed AC drives, UPS, increased electronic controls etc. to improve performance and productivity of their plants. The plant engineers are increasingly facing unfamiliar problems related to power quality (PQ) mainly problem of distortion of fundamental wave shape and associated effects.
