Simple Low Harmonic Solution

There is increasing concern among end users and power companies about the harmful effects of harmonics. Harmonic distortion may distrub or even damage sensitive equipment connected in the same environment. Harmonic standards are thus becoming stricter and there is a growing demand for low harmonic solutions.

The ACS800-37 drive offers an easy solution to the problem of harmonics. The solution itself is incorporated in the drive, eliminating the need for any additional filtering equipment or complicated and large multi-pulse transformer arrangements.

Meet the Strictest Standards

The ACS800-U37 eliminates low order harmonics with the active converter controlled with DTC, and high order harmonics with an LCL line filter. The result is exceptionally low harmonic content in the network; exceeding the requirements set by standard IEEE519 at the drive input terminals even on the weakest AC line network. The ACS800-37 provides you a simple, compact and complete solution to meet stringent power quality standards.

Beats External Solutions

The ACS800-37 does not require a dedicated multi-pulse transformer and thus is simpler in terms of cabling arrangements and requires less floor space. Harmonic performance is better than with 12 and 18-pulse solutions. Passive or active external filtering devices are avoided with the ACS800-37, making the solution compact and simple. Other advantages of the ACS800-37 is that it always operates with unity power factor 1 and is impervious to AC Line Voltage imbalances up to and over 3%. The system efficiency is also better than 12 and 18-pulse solutions due to the simplified transformer.

Extensive Range of Features

In line with other ACS800 cabinet-built drives, the ACS800-37 offers a wide variety of standarized configurations to adapt to different application requirements. The smart module concept enables easy maintenance and redundancy in the high power range where multiple identical power modules make on power structure. If on power module fails the drive may be operated at reduced capacity.

Current ratings do not change with different supply voltages.

The rated current of the ACS800 must be greater than or equal to the rated motor current to achieve the rated motor power given in the table.

Horsepower ratings are based on NEMA motor ratings for typical 4-pole motors (1800 rpm). Check motor nameplate current for compatibility.
