|Title||Power Line Harmonics Considerations for DC Drives and AC Drives|
The construction and protective features of the Yaskawa inverters with built-in DC Link Chokes eliminate the need for isolation transformers. Knowing harmonic distortion and using appropriate filtering on a system wide approach, insures a more reliable, cost effective solution. A DC Link Choke is just as effective at reducing harmonic current as a AC line reactor. Today many existing solid-state DC drives (most prevalent in the early 80's), electromechanical and fluid drives are rapidly being replaced by AC variable speed technology. High-maintenance DC drives and motors have been eliminated on extruder and other applications through the installation of Flux Vector AC drives, which closely match DC performance while eliminating maintenance.
