What Is IEEE-519?

Posted

IEEE-519 is a system guideline for setting limits on voltage and current distortion. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a non-profit professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation related to electricity. IEEE is one of the leading standards-making organizations in the world, and its standards affect a wide range of industries including power and energy. The standard which addresses harmonics  is commonly referred to as IEEE-519 or IEEE-519-2014. This standard details the recommended practices and requirements regarding harmonic control in electrical power systems.

MTE offers the Matrix AP harmonic filter, which is the most advanced filter on the market today. It features patented Adaptive Passive Technology that allows it to perform like no other filter – virtually eliminating distortion. The Matrix AP can adapt to varying loads, allowing you to meet IEEE-519 standards.
