NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harmonics are generated in an electrical power system owing to the presence of non-linear loads such as drives in the system. The propagation of harmonic frequencies in the electrical system is one of the frequent causes of problems related to power quality. Harmonic causes misfiring in variable speed drives, heating in the system and torque fluctuations. Therefore, for ensuring optimum power quality, complete suppression of harmonics is a critical consideration. Recent advancements in solid state power converters coupled with growing significance of power quality is expected to increase the use of harmonic filters across the globe. The advancements in semiconductor technology, making harmonic filters slightly cost effective and high powered technology, has had positive impact on the growth of harmonic filters across the globe. The growing use of non-linear loads such as the variable frequency drives that produce harmonics coupled with the increasing need to ensure power quality is boosting the growth of the global harmonic filter market. The growing importance of achieving acceptable levels of power quality is driving the growth of harmonic filters. By maintaining power quality through harmonic suppression, power losses can be extremely minimized and significant energy savings can be achieved. Increasing adoption of variable frequency drives promoting the uptake of harmonic filters. Rise in automation across different industrial and commercial applications and growing demand for electrical efficiency has increased the demand for Variable Frequency Drives (VFD), which is in turn boosting the growth of the harmonic filter market. The conjoint effect of all these drivers is set to boost the growth of the global harmonic filter market from 2016 - 2024.
