Matrix AP – Mitigating Harmonics for a Multi-national Internet-based Services Company

Posted

Matrix® AP Harmonic Filters proved to be the optimal solution for reducing harmonics and meeting THID performance requirements in data server centers.

Clean, quality power is critical to the operations of data server centers. This is especially challenging because the HVAC systems used to cool these centers can generate high harmonic distortions that disrupt and damage the sensitive equipment. The cause is the Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) used to operate the motors within HVAC systems. While VFDs can significantly improve efficiency, they can also introduce harmonics to the power system that will lead to operational issues and extended downtime. Contractors need to mitigate harmonics in these data centers to maximize uptime for data users worldwide. This is where MTE Corporation comes in with their harmonic filters.
