The eddy current loss is a complex function of the square of supply frequency and inverse square of the material thickness. Magnetostriction related transformer hum Magnetic flux in a ferromagnetic material, such as the core, causes it to physically expand and contract slightly with each cycle of the magnetic field, an effect known as magnetostrictionthe frictional energy of which produces an audible noise known as mains hum or transformer hum. Stray losses Leakage inductance is by itself largely lossless, since energy supplied to its magnetic fields is returned to the supply with the next half-cycle. However, any leakage flux that intercepts nearby conductive materials such as the transformer's support structure will give rise to eddy currents and be converted to heat.
Harmonic filter for better power quality April 16th, Posted in Power quality Tags: DC motorelectrical systemharmonicspower factorPower qualityuninterruptible power supplies Power Quality Optimization with Active Harmonic Filter: It is widely believed that active harmonics filters AHF are very costly and, therefore, are the last choice for power quality solutions.
The answer is it depends. Every harmonics mitigation and power factor correction device has its place in the market. Knowing what a solution does for power quality and the advantages and disadvantages of each solution provide optimized solutions with maximum benefits for the user.
Active harmonics filters provide controlled current injection to remove harmonic current from the source side of electrical system s and reactive current to correct for poor displacement power factor PF. Active harmonics filters can be applied to a single nonlinear load or many.
When is the best value achieved with active harmonic filters? DC drives, UPS, VFD, and others can operate on the same electrical system as an active harmonics filter system When input line reactors are used to reduce the total harmonics distortion of nonlinear loads.
When thyristor rectifiers are used and power factor and harmonics correction are required: DC drives and DC power supplies require power factor correction and harmonic mitigation. When PF correction is required where high harmonics content is present: Poor power factor in an electrical system a high content of nonlinear loads cannot be performed by traditional power factor correction capacitor systems Where rapid in-rush or step load changes require support aka VAR compensation to stop flicker: The power quality of an electrical system is quite poor due to the massive voltage variations caused by the loads.
When meeting harmonics specifications within your facility. The nature of harmonic currents is that they are vector sums of the amplitudes, current and voltage, at each harmonic order.
That is they are the root sum square of each harmonic order times the cosine of the phase angle differences between the vectors. Active harmonic filter selection uses this to actually reduce the per amp size of the active filter as the quantity of nonlinear loads increases. Individual solutions that is per rectifier must be sized for the full amplitude harmonic spectrum making them, collectively, more expensive and physically larger than AHF 6-pulse rectifiers produce the highest level of harmonic current among three phase loads.
Thus the AHF size is reduced due to the inexpensive insertion of inductors. Thyristor rectifiers are known as phase controlled rectifiers.STATCOM Helps to Guarantee a Stable System B.R. Anderson, B.D. Gemmell, C. Horwill, and D.J.

An inductor, also called a coil, choke, or reactor, is a passive two-terminal electrical component that stores energy in a magnetic field when electric current flows through it.
An inductor typically consists of an insulated wire wound into a coil around a core.. When the current flowing through an inductor changes, the time-varying magnetic field induces an electromotive force (e.m.f.) in the.
