The harm of chemical harmonics in the petrochemical industry


2021-02-08

The harm of harmonics in petrochemical systems is mainly the harm to power equipment and errors in measurement. Studies have shown that harmonic currents will cause additional losses in the transformer, which will cause overheating, accelerate the aging of the insulation medium, and cause insulation damage. The presence of harmonics will increase the apparent power and generate more reactive power.

 

     It can be seen that harmonics have a major negative impact on the practical efficiency of the transformer. At the same time, harmonics have a direct negative impact on capacitors, circuit breakers, and electromechanical protection equipment in the power system.
