True Harmonic Current Cancellation from the

Eliminate Harmonic Distortion Damage with ASIRobicons Active Harmonic Filter


A proven technology is now available to isolate harmonic current and protect the equipment on your power distribution system from damage due to harmonic voltage distortion. By actively monitoring the non-linear current demanded by the load, the ASIRobicon Active Harmonic Filter (AHF) electronically generates an adaptive current waveform which matches the shape of the non-linear portion of the load current. By injecting this matching current in the bus, the AHF stops the destructive current at the point of connection. By this mode of cancellation, the AHF provides the industrys best attenuation of harmonic currents. The AHFs IGBT Converter Bridge reacts at micro-second speed to changes in the non-linear load current, allowing cancellation even as the high frequency harmonic components change. The AHF is not affected by changes in the impedance in the system, nor will it react with other devices. The AHF will not adversely affect the resonant points in the system. The AHF has no series components, allowing an easy-to-install connection. If greater capacity is required, the AHF has built-in circuitry to allow for simple paralleling. Paralleled systems are available for single point field connection.

World Leader in Electronic Current Control

Features
Adaptive Injection Mode Continuously monitors the load harmonic current and cancels it. Industrys Best Harmonic Cancellation Device Superior non-linear current cancellation from the 2nd to 51st harmonic. Greatly reduces notching caused by SCR switching, diode rectification and other load generated transients. Parallel Connection With no series components, the AHF can be easily installed without major re-work. Current measurement is made with current transformers. Energy consumption is low. Electronic VAR Current In addition to harmonic cancellation current, the AHF electronically produces leading VAR current, aiding in the improvement of system power factor without the negative effects of traditional power factor correction capacitors. Current Limited The AHF unit is limited and can work in any system without damage, regardless of the magnitude of harmonic current demanded by the load. Safety and Access The AHFs power selections are covered within the enclosure. Removable panels allow easy front access and clear view of major components. IEEE 519-1992 The AHF units are easily paralleled and can be sized to guarantee compliance with IEEE 519-1992 harmonic standards under most load conditions.

Unique Features
Adaptive Injection Mode Harmonic Filter The AHFs electronic bridge draws leading reactive current from the power line, stores it in a DC capacitor bus, and delivers it back to the line as harmonic current, meeting the loads demand for non-linear current at the point of connection. The source delivers fundamental current. Industrys Best Harmonic Cancellation Device Unlike a tuned filter, the AHF continuously measures the loads changing non-linear current and injects the required waveform to supply the loads harmonic current demand from the 2nd to the 51st harmonic. Easy to Apply The AHF is a non-resonating, nontuned device. It can be installed anywhere in the distribution system. A simple measurement to determine the magnitude of harmonic current is all that is needed. For new installations the equipment manufacturer or your AHF supplier can provide the required data. IGBT Bridge AHFs Class-D Switching Mode Current Source Amplifier uses Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors. These are high frequency switched power electronic devices that allow high resolution and micro-second response to match the loads non-linear current waveform. The AHF is connected parallel to the bus through a soft start circuit. When energized, the AHF draws leading reactive current and the converter uses this to charge a DC Bus. The current transformers on two of the phases measure the load current. An electronic notch filter rejects the fundamental frequency component and passes the distortion current components (harmonic as well as non-harmonic, transient and subharmonic components). Electronically controlled linear attenuators reduce the harmonic current signals to limit the AHFs harmonic current output to the units rated RMS value. The amplifier control logic uses this signal to modulate current waveform which matches the non-fundamental current demanded by the non-linear load.
