CTM and the Future of Power Quality

April 20, 2015

At CTM, superior technology allows us to engineer the ultimate power quality solutions. We design and produce three phase inductors (reactors) and filters for the line (grid) side and load (motor) side of variable frequency drives from 40 A through 3,000 A. Our technologies provide size, weight, power loss and audible noise reduction to the following industries (and more!):


  • Oil and Gas
  • Utility Scale Renewables
  • VSD Controlled Chillers
  • Ship/Rail Transportation
  • Battery Energy Storage Systems
  • Active Filters
  • Power Conversion Systems

We place strong value on innovation, designing progressive solutions that set the bar for power quality expectations. We are the industry leader in liquid cooled power quality solutions. We believe that our customers deserve superior products without excessive prices, and we have designed every aspect of our business and production to allow us to achieve that goal. At CTM, we are designing the future of power quality.

This section of our site is dedicated to providing education regarding power quality and the solutions CTM has for tomorrow’s power problems and concerns. Follow for more information regarding power quality, energy education, the future of power and other advantages our products offer.
