Traditionally, fixed electro-mechanical and semiconductor-controlled filters and/or compensators have been used to limit behaviors that waste energy. These solutions operate mainly on a fixed or stepped basis using passive elements. But these solutions have multiple disadvantages:
- they add losses
- are installation-specific
- have no ability to adapt to dynamic load changes
Active Dynamic Filters
Compared to other power quality technologies, ADF provides a solution that is hard to beat. It is an efficient system that leads to low losses, but more than that, it provides a reliable toolbox that can seamlessly address a variety of disturbances, from THD to flicker.
And ADF does that as a lighter, more compact package that has been certified according to most standards, such as DNV GL, ABS, and BV.
