Harmonic Mitigating Transformers

Benefits of Harmonic Mitigating Transformers PQI has been on the leading edge of harmonic mitigation solutions longer than any other manufacturer in the industry. Our products are manufactured to the highest quality standards (ISO 9001), and our product designs have been proven highly effective in real-world scenarios. For these reasons, many engineers insist upon PQI for the most effective harmonic mitigation solutions. All PQI Distribution TransFilters™ result in:
  • Reduced power costs
  • Reduced penalty losses due to harmonic currents
  • Reduced transformer heating and A/C loading
  • Reduced THDv to less than 5% at nonlinear loads or motor drives
  • Reduced losses in the loads, thereby reducing A/C requirements
  • Improved switch-mode power supply’s “ride-through” capability
  • Balanced primary phase currents
  • Assured system compatibility with sensitive electronic loads
Our Type DY and Type DV Distribution TransFilters™ provide flexibility to engineer almost any solution; however, we also offer specialty harmonic mitigation transformers and filters designed to offer distinct advantages in certain applications.
PQI Product Typical Application Typical Industry Additional Benefits Within Specialty Application
