MATRIX D harmonic filters available from Westek Electronics offer an excellent solution to reducing harmonics and are now rated at a maximum of 1200 amps.
MATRIX D harmonic filters are broadband devices and therefore very effective when compared to active filters but available at a significantly lower cost.
MATRIX D harmonic filters can be installed without any need to survey the electrical installation in detail for harmonic patterns, which can fluctuate greatly.
Key features of MTE MATRIX series D harmonic filters:
- Reduces retrofitting obstacles by providing a series of high performance filters that are significantly smaller in volumetric size and offer considerable savings in weight and cost
- Cuts heat dissipation in cables, busbars and switchboards, reducing load on substation transformers while providing superior dynamic performance in plants with variably loaded electronic drives
- Multiple 3-phase inductor with a common core-based filter
- Patented unitary magnetic circuit topology represents a significant refinement over series B while offering similar reliability
Key advantages of the new MTE MATRIX technology:
- Saves up to two-thirds of filter space
- Smaller capacitors
- Designed to outperform 18-pulse converter stages for variable speed drive DC-links
- Reduces harmonic content in current to as little as 5% at fill load
- Represents a 40% reduction over harmonic levels from other commercially available filters
MTE MATRIX series D harmonic filters are available in 415V and 690V options with line current rating from 6 amps to 1200 amps. Current ratings can be increased by paralleling filters.
