C-Type Harmonic Filters for Arc Furnace Facilities

Arc furnace installations are notorious for having some of the most unconventional power quality problems in any application. Reactive power compensation is extremely important for many reasons in this kind of facilities, but it can also be a more complex affair than installing traditional notch filters because of the uncharacteristic harmonics present due to the arc furnace itself.

Using EasyPower, we will learn how a C-type filter works, what its purpose is and a simplified approach on how to correctly size a C/type filter’s components.
