Harmonics solutions for water and wastewater applications

Attendees qualify for a Certificate of Completion.

Problems associated with harmonic distortion are well understood for many power system applications; however, finding the right solution is challenging. Because of the significant use of variable frequency drives in water and wastewater applications, understanding the appropriate solutions for your application is important. There are at least 10 different technologies and strategies tO choose from, each with specific technical and economic advantages.

Learning objectives:

  • Provide technical recommendations for reducing harmonic distortion, improving system capacity and improving system reliability while evaluating installed costs.
  • Discuss special considerations for applying capacitors on a power system with harmonics.
  • Evaluate optional solutions for variable frequency drive applications such as applying a single large harmonic filter or active filter, versus drive dedicated filters, versus phase-shifting transformers.
  • Explain opportunities for improving energy efficiency using harmonic technologies.
