Matrix AP Adaptive Passive Harmonic Filters

adaptive passive harmonic filter
The Matrix Adaptive Passive Harmonic Filter is the latest innovation from MTE and uses “adaptive passive technology” in its design. Essentially a passive harmonic filter, the Matrix AP adapts to load conditions to provide optimised THID performance. It maintains a THID performance of 8% MAX at 30% load and 5% MAX at full load and helps meet IEEE-519 Requirements (5% THID) when used at lighter loads. The Matrix AP Harmonic filter is the most advanced passive harmonic filter and provides improved energy efficiency and power factor.

The Martix AP Harmonic Filter has the ability to vary its impedance in response to changing loads. At light loads, the impedance of the Martix AP harmonic filter increases. At higher loads the impedance of the Martix AP harmonic filter decreases. This result is more consistent mitigation of current harmonics even from light loads and more efficiency at higher loads. The patented design involves a new core technology in the lamination panels that provide the reaction based on the load. The Matrix AP harmonic filters use far less capacitors than previous models and resistors and fans are eliminated completely. These features reduce complexity and increase reliability.
The new Matrix AP Harmonic filter is available in 480 Volts 60Hz, 400 Volts 50Hz, and 600 Volts 60Hz, 690V 50Hz available on request.

Design Features
