TYPE OF INDUSTRY – Pharmaceutical Industry, Himachal Pradesh, India
YEAR OF IMPLEMENTATION – 2016
- High Harmonic Distortion
- Low power factor
- High KVAH consumption
- Frequent breakdown in VFDs
After conducting Power Quality Audit in the plant, following observations are made:
5th & 7th Harmonics are getting amplify due to resonance effects between conventional type APFC (w/o Harmonic Filters) & Transformer impedance.
The Amplification of Harmonics cause frequent failure in VFDs drives.
Detune Resonance condition by providing suitable Passive Harmonic Filter Banks.
Add Digitally controlled Active Harmonic Filter Bank to control THDI & THDV < 5% as per IEEE 519-1992
Design, Manufacturing & Installation of Hybrid Harmonic Filter Banks -Automatic Passive Harmonic filter bank 1500 kvar and Digitally controlled Active Harmonic filter banks of 150A, 3ph,4 wire at main incomer.

THDI & THDV reduced to < 5%.
The 5th & 7th Harmonics current are reduced.
PF improvement to unity (1.0) from 0.94 lag
Apprx 6 % saving in KVA.
Reduction in Electrical Breakdown in the Plant.
