Have you wondered what effect VFDs have on power quality? And what you can do about it?
Join us as Oliver Voumard, Application Engineer at YASKAWA presents a primer on harmonics & VFDs.

What you can expect:

  • Discussion on harmonics in context to the AC electrical power grid with a focus on non-linear loads and their contribution to line distortion.
  • Review terminology pertaining to harmonic analysis such as current and voltage harmonic distortion (iTHD & vTHD), as well as current total demand distortion (TDD).
  • Introduce commonly used passive/active mitigation methods and the IEEE519 standard for harmonic evaluation at a point of common coupling.
