HVAC & Chillers
In HVAC, efficiency is king. That is why variable frequency drives (VFDs) have become the standard control system in HVAC and large industrial chiller installations. VFDs offer precision speed control for motors driving pumps, chillers, fans, and compressors, yielding significant energy savings and lower operation costs. To further increase efficiency, HVAC companies are beginning to adopt higher frequency permanent magnet (PM) motors.
These faster spinning motors come with a downside, higher harmonic distortion. Traditional sine wave filters are designed for line frequency, 60 Hz, applications and are not designed for higher frequencies. CTM FlexSine® and HighSine filters are designed specifically for high frequency motor applications.
Energy Storage & Utilities
Utility companies are responsible for tirelessly maintaining the integrity of the power grid. Distributed power (residential solar) and renewable energy technologies (such as solar panels and wind turbines) are increasingly being used as power generation sources. Furthermore, these energy sources utilize control circuits and converters which introduce harmonic distortion. This distortion can have disastrous effects on the health of the power grid. CTM Magnetics provides solutions that reduce this distortion, increasing efficiency and protecting the grid.
In utility-scale solar power generation, total cost of ownership and reliability are some of the most critical factors to consider. CTM’s liquid cooled inductor technology, with its low-cost, high efficiency, and robust design, is ideally suited to meet both of these industry demands.
Wind power is increasingly being applied as a mainstream energy source. Wind turbines traditionally connect to the power grid through a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG), which efficiently ensures that AC power is at line frequency (50 or 60 Hz), regardless of the actual rotating speed of the wind turbine. Additionally, after the doubly-fed induction generator, a step-up transformer is generally used to increase the voltage. These power conversions systems introduce significant harmonic distortion. This distortion can have disastrous effects on the health of the power grid. CTM Magnetics provides solutions that reduce this distortion, increasing efficiency, and protecting the grid.
Marine & Offshore
In marine and offshore applications, Size Matters. When real estate is at a premium, look no further than CTM liquid cooled technology, the optimum choice for power density and efficiency.
In industrial and manufacturing applications, variable frequency drives (VFDs) have become common-place. VFDs hold distinct advantages over other electronic controls, such as increased energy efficiency, more refined signal control, and the ability to start and stop with a ramp-up and ramp-down schedule (variable speeds). These VFDs also introduce significant harmonic distortion. This distortion can have disastrous effects on the health of your equipment. CTM Magnetics provides solutions that reduce this distortion, increasing efficiency and protecting equipment.
