Harmonic Analysis

Brown Electric has the SKM software and experience to analyze harmonic effects (resonance/distortion) with a proposed electrical installation prior to its installation.

PTW HI_Wave is utilized to insure the Calculated Voltage and Current distortions for each Harmonic number and the THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) are within the limits of IEEE 519 at the PCC (Point of Common Coupling) with the utility.

The use of power correction capacitors in harmonic rich environments must be closely analyzed. Arc furnace applications are an example where one must fully analyze all possible alternatives. Lack of experience is this arena can be very costly.
