Improving Harmonic Mitigation
Harmonic mitigation and variable frequency drives (VFDs) are two topics often tied to each other. Nonlinear loads, such as VFDs, generate harmonics. Electrical systems with high levels of harmonics may encounter issues, such as unstable operation of stand-by generators. Of all the solutions recognized, active front end (AFE) drive technology is widely considered the best overall harmonic mitigation technology.
