Harmonics – the water industry’s silent challenge

Variable speed drives in water treatment control save tremendous amounts of energy. However along with other devices, they introduce harmonic distortion into electrical systems.

Harmonic distortion creates a variety of risks within a utility, but the most common is additional heat. As devices run hotter, they run less efficiently, age faster and are prone to premature failure.

We have the solution…

The traditional way of reducing harmonics has been to use external filters or higher spec and oversized power network equipment. These mitigations invariably introduce system complexity, increase installation footprint and increase project costs.
