Merus™ HPQ is a hybrid power quality compensator. Its operation is based on two main components: a detuned capacitor bank and an active harmonic filter. In the Merus™ HPQ all-in-one solution, the Merus™ A2-series active harmonic filter operates as a power factor correction (PFC) controller for the capacitor bank and utilizes detuned capacitor steps to fulfill most capacitive reactive power needs, while the A2 module handles the intermediate steps and inductive reactive power, filters the harmonic currents and balances the unbalanced currents.
Merus™ HPQ is a unique and reliable all-in-one solution that provides:
- Stepless and fast power factor correction
- Harmonic current mitigation
- Imbalance correction
