As a reliable solution for adjustable speed drives, AC to DC converters, active front ends and frequency inverters, line reactors reduce harmonic current distortion and absorb voltage transients. They help to reduce harmonic currents that flow through facility transformers and onto the upstream power system (network). They increase line impedance so as to efficiently reduce the adverse effects of voltage transients such as drive over-voltage tripping or rectifier damage and they can reduce the impact of voltage notching due to SCR controllers.
The line reactor’s impedance can also limit the startup and peak currents associated with energizing converters thus protecting your electronics. Additionally, peak current in capacitor circuits can be dampened.
For use in the North-American area, the MANGOLDT line reactors are also available as CUL Listed or cUR recognized products.
