Launch of a new Power Quality Partnership for Danfoss VLT® Drives
05 August 2010
Following the successful launch of our Active Harmonic Mitigation Solutions, Danfoss Drives have entered into a partnership with the industry respected Electrowave Power Solutions Ltd. This partnership will provide our customers with the consultancy services required to ensure they receive the correct advice about Harmonic Distortion and the available mitigation techniques to maintain a Good Power Quality at all times.
Power quality is the interaction of electrical power with electrical equipment If electrical equipment operates correctly and reliably without being damaged or stressed we would say that the electrical power is of good quality. On the other hand, if the electrical equipment malfunctions is unreliable or is damaged during normal usage we would suspect that the power quality is poor.
Power quality issues can be high-speed events such as voltage impulses / transients, high frequency noise, wave shape faults such as Harmonic Distortion, voltage swells and sags or even total power loss. As engineers we know that each type of electrical equipment will be affected differently by power quality issues. By analyzing the electrical power and evaluating the equipment or load we can determine if a power quality problem exists.
