Active filters are the more permanent flexible solution. These filters actively monitor the system and use a set of transistors and capacitors to filter the current waveform by injecting inverse currents to cancel out the undesired harmonic components. These filters have a higher physical and financial footprint compared to passive filters.
Passive harmonics filters are the more economical solution and can be used in a variety of capacities and voltages. These filters utilise components like inductors, capacitors and resistors to reduce, or mitigate, harmonics to tolerable levels as defined by IEEE-519. Passive Harmonic Filters have a lower physical and financial footprint, they also have guaranteed stability and little to no power consumption.
Line and Load Reactors are economical power quality units, proven to reduce harmonic distortion. They are a versatile option and can either provide a solution that reduces harmonic distortion on the line side or minimises long lead effects to extend equipment lifetime.
