HPS TruWave active harmonic filter (AHF) is a comprehensive and flexible solution for harmonic mitigation. It provides the advanced control and proven reliability that your facility needs to solve power qualities.

It monitors the load current and very quickly responds to the power system distortion as it develops. A corrective current is injected to effectively cancel out the harmonics required from the upstream power source. The result is a harmonic load on the power system that is acceptable, with more balanced current and voltage waveforms.

HPS TruWave operates at one of the highest efficiencies for any AHF, ensuring that losses are minimized. It is a critical addition to any plant or facility requiring IEEE-519 compliance.

Power quality problems are one of the major causes of unscheduled down time, equipment malfunction, and damage. The majority of power quality issues are a result of harmonic distortion.

HPS TruWave monitors the load current and very quickly responds to the power system distortion as it develops. A corrective current is injected to effectively cancel out the harmonics required from the upstream power source. The result is a harmonic load on the power system that is acceptable, with more balanced current and voltage waveforms.

Features include:

  • Actively reduces harmonic distortion to below 5% complying with IEEE-519 recommendation
  • Improves power factor resulting in decreased utility cost
  • Parallel system installation to accommodate large scale applications
  • 98% operation efficiency to lower operational costs and increased reliability
  • Balances three phase loads for increased usable system capacity
  • Corrects for single/multiple loads enabling cost effective solutions

HPS TruWaveTM AHF can be sized using an excel-based program. It uses your basic system data to generate accurate harmonic and power quality analysis to select the HPS TruWave unit for your unique applications.
