Presents a series impedance that A is directly proportional to a v frequency Forces DC bus capacitor to charge more slowly r Additional benefit 0 Reduces DC bus overvoltages due to capacitor switching

based on the VA base of the drive Vbase 2 X 005 L75 VAb ase Inductance in Henrys is based on XL at the fundamental frequency Lecture 23 Universityofldaho Zigzag transformers Used for zerosequence currents Commercial facilities singlephase nonlinear loads Provides a path for zerosequence currents between the phase and neutral conductors Useful in existing facilities Lecture 23 5 Universityofldaho Passive filters 0 Capacitors and inductors can be arranged to produce high or low impedances at certain frequencies 0 Resistors can be added to provide damping o Shunt passive lters provide a low impedance alternate path 0 Series passive filters increase the series impedance for certain frequencies Lecture 23 E Universityofldaho Passive filters 0 Shunt passive lters Notch filter is the most popular May employ delta or wye connected capacitors connected to the line or neutral through inductors xix 3 Lecture 23 7 Universityofldaho Passive filters 0 Series passive filters Provide a high impedance to the target harmonic Must carry full load current Not practical for multiple harmonics Useful in singlephase applications Lecture 23 E Universityofldaho Lowpass broadband filter 0 Combines shunt and series elements Low impedance for low frequencies Hi impedance for high frequencies See PSQ p258 Several basic building blocks of the lowpass filter can be placed in series to produce a steeper slope in the frequency response Lecture 23 a Universityofldaho General approach with passive filters 0 Start at the lowest harmonic of concern 0 Tune filters slightly lower than the target harmonic 0 Check for resonant points creating high impedances o If system impedance changes reevaluate lter Lecture 23 in Universityofldaho Active filters 0 Use powerelectronics to inject the missing current in the nonlinear oad s current waveform 0 Results in minimal distortion on the source side 0 No resonance concerns 0 May also correct power factor and icker Lecture 23 ll

address both the low power factor and the high 5th harmonic current with a shunt filter Note both texts contain this example and both contain errors they re corrected here References are to the FPQ

use 1200kVA to calculate current here Lecture 23 16 Universityofldaho Filter design example 0 Notes on duty calculations Fundamental duty is straightforward o Depends only on net filter reactance and
