In this session we will drill down into the varied industry protection types used to dampen line side impacts on VFDs from current and voltage spikes, line distortions and EMI (noise).  We’ll explain source impedance impacts and all the various upstream harmonic filtering options.

Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • The different types and possible causes of power disturbances
  • The effect of power disturbances to VFDs and how to mitigate
