Power supply harmonics

Power supply harmonics may be generated from the converter section of the inverter,
affecting the power supply equipment, power capacitor, etc. Power supply harmonics
are different in generation source, frequency band and transmission path from radio
frequency (RF) noise and leakage currents. Take the following counter measures.

! ! ! ! Countermeasures
The harmonic current generated from the
inverter to the power supply differs according
to various conditions such as the wiring
impedance,
whether
improving reactor is used or not, and output
frequency and output current on load side.
For the output frequency and output current,
the adequate method is to obtain them under
rated load at the maximum operating
frequency.
Note: A power factor improving capacitor and surge suppressor on the inverter's
output side may overheat or be damaged due to the harmonics of the inverter
output. Also, when an overcurrent flows in the inverter, the overcurrent
protection is activated. Hence, when the motor is driven by the inverter, do not
install a capacitor or surge suppressor on the inverter's output side. To improve
the power factor, insert a power factor improving reactor in the inverter's input
or DC circuit. For details, refer to the FR-A500/E500 series technical
information.
