New GenMax Harmonic Suppression System Maximizes Operating Efficiency and Energy Cost Savings for Multiple Parallel Generators
(Brookfield, CT) Harmonics Limited, LLC announces the introduction of itís GenMax product as part of the companyís Harmonic Suppression System (HSS) product line. The GenMax series will be sold through the companyís independent sales representatives and selected manufacturers of paralleling switchgear now being named. Details on the new product line can be found at http://www.harmonicslimited.com/products/genmax.
In explaining the need for the GenMax, Richard Bell, President of Harmonics Limited, described the problem being solved as one where multiple generators of different winding pitches are paralleled. This pitch differential leads to 3rd harmonic currents which in turn result in high 3rd harmonic currents flowing in the grounding system. If there is a ground fault shunt trip breaker protecting the generator, it will open long before the generator can reach full capacity. Since the NEC (2008) requires full load testing of critical system loads, the 3rd harmonic current can prevent the paralleled generator from reaching the required load capacity.
Installing a GenMax unit blocks the formation of the 3rd harmonic current and allows proper paralleling of the generators. GenMax prevents the premature tripping of the breaker that keeps the generator from operating to its maximum capacity. This new solution allows multiple generators with differences in winding pitch to operate efficiently at full capacity by reducing 3rd harmonic ground current to just a few amperes. Both generator operating time and energy cost savings are maximized.
About the Company
Harmonics Limited (HL) is the recognized authority on the mitigation of harmonic currents in power distribution systems and is the leading provider of Harmonic Suppression Systems (HSS). HLís patented technology substantially eliminates the formation of the damaging third harmonic current generated by computer loads in todayís commercial and industrial applications.
The company has a broad base of installed systems in continuous operation throughout the United States. Clients, by equipping their distribution transformers with the HSS, dramatically increase load capacity and improve system safety, quality and reliability, gaining significant energy savings with reduced environmental impact.
