OF GOOD POWER QUALITY
Power quality can affect the overall company performance, which is a fact easily overlooked by the management. Merus active harmonic fiters provide a quick return on your investment.
The quick and effective response of Merus active harmonic fiters to power system variations enables higher process reliability, longer equipment life, reduced energy losses and better productivity.
Italso makes it easy to comply with global power quality standards and demanding grid codes.
Rise of non-linear and other challenging loads in modern electrical networks present unique power quality challenges. Sensitive operations, challenging loads and isolated or weaker grids demand stricter grid codes and power quality standards to safeguard the reliability of an electrical system for smooth industrial and commercial processes.
Harmonics distortions, voltage variations, poor power factor and load unbalance are among the key elements that not only test the reliability of modern electrical systems but also induce overall greater system losses.

OF MERUS ACTIVE HARMONIC FILTERS
Along with effectively cancelling harmonic distortions, Merus active harmonic fiters are capable of solving several other power quality challenges.
The selective operation mode allows tailoring of the functionality of Merus active harmonic fiter to meet the required performance level.
Merus active harmonic fiters are easily confiurable through the HMI to improve the power factor by injecting fundamental reactive power.
Unlike conventional technologies, real time response ensures that reactive power is fed effiiently to the fast flctuating loads such as welding machines and cranes, among others. It guarantees the mitigation of voltage variations and flcker.
Load unbalancing in a 3-phase system, such as spot welding, can also be addressed with the help of Merus active harmonic fiters.
- Active harmonic fitering
- Power factor correction
- Voltage variation control and flcker mitigation
- Load balancing in three-phase systems
Merus A2-series active harmonic fiters are built on modern 3-level topology which brings several benefis compared to other active fiters built on the
conventional 2-level topology.
In 3-level topology, the switching frequency and voltage stress are distributed among the two IGBTs.
Reduced stress extends the lifetime of the power electronics. The effiiency and lower losses achieved with 3-level topology are excellent.
These make the overall cost of ownership much lower compared to
AND EASE OF INTERGRATION
Standard A2-series active harmonic fiter is in IP20 protection class module. Extremely compact sizeallows easy integration into variable speed drives (VFDs) or capacitor bank cubicles. Merus Power can also deliver active harmonic fiters in IP42, IP54 or others degrees of protection upon request.
Furthermore, A2-series active fiters are also available in wall-mounted design.
AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE & FREQUENCY SENSING
WITH SMART OPERATION MODE
Merus active harmonic fiters come with several advanced features. When connected to the network,
they automatically sense the voltage and frequency, simplifying the order and delivery processes. A2-
series active harmonic fiters are also equipped with the built-in smart operation mode.
Under low load conditions,the smart operation mode automatically turns off the IGBTs and fans reducing the operational losses and extending the lifetime of the active harmonic fiters.
Unlimited scalability can easily be achieved with Merus A2-series active harmonic fiters in both; open-loop as well as closed-loop connections.
Higher harmonic compensation capacity can be achieved by adding A2-series active harmonic fiters modules in parallel without any technical limitations.
This gives flxibility to facility engineers when more loads are added in the facilities.
LOW NOISE HARMONIC FILTERING SOLUTION
Pollution comes in many forms: harmonics pollute the electrical power system, and high audible noise pollutes and disturbs people working in close proximity.
Merus A2-series active fiters, enabled by 3-level topology, release the lowest possible audible noise among all active fiters. Designed with high switching frequency and special inductor core material, Merus A-2 series active fiters can be installed into spaces where silence is vital.

APPLICATIONS IN INDUSTRIES
In the manufacturing plants, the Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) have extensively been used for the motor control purposes to save energy.
However, they are one of the major sources of harmonic distortions in the network. Merus A2-series active harmonic fiters can effectively cancel the harmonic distortions created by variable speed drives in industrial applications. Merus A2-series active harmonic fiters bring power quality benefis to variety of industries including the following:
