Power Quality products act as electrical filters by removing or reducing the level of harmful harmonics and re-shaping the sinewave for the longevity of operation of electrical systems. Variable Speed Drives are prolific creators of harmonics in electrical systems and as a result, most of the harmonic mitigation effort focuses on the input side and output side of a VSD. For the mitigation of harmonics on the input side (line side) of a VSD we recommend Line...

Featured Fuses

A fuse is a type of over-current protective device that is designed to be a sacrificial element in an electrical power system. Fuses are designed to open circuits when excessive currents are present due to over-currents, and are designed to prevent further damage to the system that might result if the fuse were not present. Fuses are sacrificial in that they are generally good for one time use and are destroyed in the process of operating. Short circuits,...

Why use a fuse?

What is a fuse? A fuse is a protective device that is designed to protect an electrical power system from the harmful effects of over-currents (currents higher than the normal operating current). Fuses are sacrificial in that they are generally good for one time use and are destroyed in the process of operating. The use of fuses in a circuit provides cheap insurance should there be an accidental or unintentional fault in...

What is RFI?

Electromagnetic interference (or EMI, also called radio frequency interference or RFI) is a disturbance that affects an electrical circuit due to either electromagnetic conduction or electromagnetic radiation emitted from an external source. The disturbance may interrupt, obstruct, or otherwise degrade or limit the effective performance of the circuit. The source may be any object, artificial or natural, that carries rapidly changing electrical...

What causes Harmonic Distortion?

As power utilities continue to be pushed to the limits of supply capability, rising energy costs and decreasing power quality will continue to be an issue for consumers. Users continually search for ways to not only reduce energy costs, but also ensure their processes will continue to operate, no matter the quality of the incoming power. To accomplish this, more and more variable frequency drives, UPS systems, and other non-linear loads are being...

Hi Julia, Yesterday I called you at 4.45pm and asked for "the impossible" - an overnight delivery for a customer's production breakdown. You said that you would help me and this morning, your package arrived. In my experience, I have never dealt with a company that can do what you guys did for me. You guys are amazing and very professional. Thank you!...

New 2016 Fuseco Power Quality Catalogue now available

The Fuseco 2016 Power Quality catalogue has arrived! To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that a catalogue has been available to the Australian industry that is exclusively dedicated to Power Quality. Power Quality solutions are often difficult to find because they are usually a small part of a larger engineering solution or product range. Hence, it is difficult to consider the various options...

Passive Filter vs Active Filter. Which one to use?

When it comes to mitigating harmonics to comply with Australian Standards for harmonic distortion, the two main technologies that are commonly applied are Passive Harmonic Filters (PHF) and Active Harmonic Filters (AHF). With such effective options at our disposal, the common question asked is “Which one do I use?” How would you answer that question? Actually, as with most things in life there isn’t one definitive answer….it...

Solar Array Simulation Enables Inverter Manfacturers to Meet Test Challenges

As a result of improvements in solar array technology and initiatives for implementing green technologies, solar systems are becoming an increasingly cost‐effective solution for residential and commercial applications. The onus is now on solar inverter manufacturers to keep up with the market’s rapidly accelerating requirements, especially the development in solar array technology and evolving performance parameters. Historically,...

TDEMI - 645 MHz Real-time Analysis Bandwidth for Full Compliance Testing

Realistic Simulation Whatever solar array simulator you use, the simulation must be as realistic as possible. For example, many PV inverters generate AC ripple on the DC connected to the photovoltaic array. For single‐phase inverters, the frequency of this ripple is twice the line frequency (100Hz). An increasing number of inverters (and virtually all micro‐inverters) accurately measure amplitude and phase of the ripple voltage and...

Is 5% THID achievable with a passive solution? Absolutely!

If I need to achieve a 5% THID result in a drive environment, is my only option an Active Filter? Till recently, the answer was ‘yes’. However MTE have recently released a new passive harmonic filter, the Matrix AP. The MTE Matrix AP offers equal to or better than 5% THID performance at full load current and starts to achieve that 5% performance from loads as low as 40% of full load current. Are there other brands that can promise this level of...

Are you unsure of how to comply with Harmonic Distortion specifications?

Are you occasionally presented with the challenge of dealing with excessive harmonics on a site? The presence of non-linear loads in some electrical systems present us with this challenge and further to that, we have to comply with Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)specifications provided by supply authorities and consulting engineers. Melbourne University recently embarked on a major re-development of an existing building to use as a new base for one of its...

Fuseco appointed Australian distributor for Newtons4th Ltd. (N4L)

We often hear about Newton’s 3 laws, also known as the ‘3 laws of motion’. However, Newton also famously discovered the law of gravitation (gravity), apparently while sitting under an apple tree. Why does traditional text avoid referring to the law of gravitation as ‘Newton’s 4th law’? Actually, we don’t know but we’d like to introduce you to a different kind of Newton’s 4th that may not have quite as...
