SYNOPSIS

One of the most misunderstood design elements in an HVAC building is the role Harmonics play in the electrical system. Harmonics are harmful, energy-wasting currents which flow in the electrical system.

To improve building performance & to lower electrical energy consumption of HVAC and other electrically driven equipment has led to the introduction of 'non-linear' electrical loads to the electrical grid. Harmonic distortion caused by increasing non-linear loads can result in issues in a building's electrical system.

Harmonic Distortion - A by product of modern electronics, occurs when large numbers of personal computers, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), variable-frequency drives (VFDs), and other devices using solid-state power-switching supplies to convert (AC) power to (DC) power are present. In HVAC systems, AC drives are the most prevalent source of harmonic distortion.

This webinar would cover following topics
-  What is harmonics
-  Standards & Compliance
-  How to mitigate Harmonics
