ABB Ultra-low harmonic drives ensure pollution-free electricity supplies

Low Harmonic DrivesElectricity networks can easily be affected by harmonics, or higher-order oscillations introduced by various types of electrical equipment. Although solutions exist to counter or mitigate harmonics, it is better to install equipment that does not cause them in the first place. On the basis that “Prevention is better than cure”, ABB has developed a complete product family of variable speed drives (VSDs) that avoid these harmonics by design. The broad range of ultra-low harmonic (ULH) drives covers the complete power and voltage range for all kinds of industries and applications, providing customers with an effective solution to successfully tackle harmonic issues.
