No Harmony in Harmonics

Add Your Comments

Harmonic currents generated by non-linear electronic loads increase power system heat losses and power bills for data center operators. These harmonic-related losses reduce system efficiency, cause apparatus overheating, and increase power and air conditioning costs. As the number of harmonics-producing loads has increased in the date center, it has become increasingly necessary to address their influence when making any additions or changes to an IT installation.

This Harmonics white paper from Eaton looks at:

  • The trouble with harmonics in modern power systems
  • Solutions to compensate for and reduce harmonics
