June 8, 2020

Topic: SCADA YASKAWA VFD mechanical and electrical repairs automated systems Generators

A generator is supposed to be there for you when you have an emergency power outage. So, if you don't want your power backup to fail, it's a good idea to make sure that your generator is in tip top running condition. You can do this easily by routinely running it and checking it for the following signs that repairs might be needed:

In simplest terms, harmonics can be defined as distortions to a voltage or current waveform. These distortions occur when non-linear, or non-sinusoidal, loads draw from a sinusoidal voltage source. In other words, harmonics can be generated whenever the smooth symmetrical sine wave of your AC power source is converted to squarish pulses by any of the plant components below, to name just a few of the most common harmonic sources.
