GE transmformers mitigate damage from harmful harmonics
Invisible intruders wreak havoc for consulting engineers and managers of industrial, commercial and educational facilities. The culpritsharmonicsoverheat electrical systems, causing less capacity, more noise and shortened lives for transformers. Guard III Harmonic Mitigating Transformers from
GE Consumer & Industrial curb harmonic currents that K-factor transformers do not, reduce transformer heating caused by harmonics and improve upstream power quality, all while maintaining the NEMA TP-1 standard for energy efficiency.
Harmonics are everywhere, says Bill Forsythe, product manager, GE Consumer & Industrial. Unlike K-factor transformers, which merely reduce transformer heating due to poor power quality, Guard III transformers from GE help to improve power quality, extend transformer life and reduce premature transformer failure.
