For an oil producer, Matrix® AP Harmonic Filters with 6-pulse drives proved to be a higher performance, lower cost harmonic mitigation solution when compared to multi-pulse drives.
Progressive Cavity Pumps (PCPs) on artificial lift systems are often driven by Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs). These drives help the motors run more efficiently but also introduce harmonic distortion. Unmitigated harmonics can lead to power quality problems on the system as well as the power grid. A global drive manufacturer working with MTE achieved a winning solution with improved quality, increased productivity, and greater operational efficiencies.
