Maintenance and Care of Active Harmonic Filters: The Key to Longer Service Life

As an indispensable part of the power system, the normal operation of the active harmonic filter is essential to ensure the stability of the power grid and the reliability of the equipment. In order to ensure the long-term stable operation of the active harmonic filter, the correct maintenance and repair work is particularly important. In this paper, we will discuss the maintenance and repair of active harmonic filters, and introduce some key measures to help extend their service life.

Regular inspection and cleaning

Mixed harmonic filter in the operation process, will inevitably by the environment of dust, dirt and other impurities in the intrusion. These impurities, if not cleaned in time, may adversely affect the filter's thermal performance, electrical connections and so on. Therefore, regular inspection and cleaning is the basic work of maintaining the active harmonic filter. During inspection, focus should be placed on whether the appearance of the filter is intact, whether the heat sink is blocked, and whether the electrical connections are tight. When cleaning, use a dry soft cloth or hoover to gently wipe the filter shell and heat sink, avoid the use of detergents containing chemical ingredients, so as not to cause corrosion of the filter.

Check the electrical performance

Electrical performance is a key indicator of the normal operation of the active harmonic filter. Regular inspection of the electrical performance of the filter can detect potential problems in time to avoid failure. Electrical performance inspection includes the measurement of voltage, current, power factor and other parameters, as well as insulation resistance, grounding resistance and other safety performance testing. In the inspection process, qualified testing instruments should be used, and the operation steps should be carried out in accordance with the regulations to ensure the accuracy of the measurement results. For the problems found, they should be handled in a timely manner, such as replacing damaged components and adjusting parameter settings.

The maintenance of the cooling system

Active harmonic filter will produce a certain amount of heat in the operation process, if the heat dissipation is poor, it may lead to temperature rise, which will affect the performance and life of the filter. Therefore, the maintenance of the cooling system is also an important part of the maintenance of the active harmonic filter. Maintenance of the cooling system includes regular cleaning of dust and dirt on the heat sink to ensure that the cooling channel is smooth; checking the operating status of the fan, if the fan is found to be too slow or noisy, it should be replaced in a timely manner; for filters using liquid cooling, it is also necessary to check the level and quality of the coolant on a regular basis, so as to ensure that the cooling system operates normally.

The establishment of maintenance and maintenance files

The establishment of maintenance and maintenance files is an important part of the management of active harmonic filters. The file should be detailed records of each inspection, cleaning, electrical performance inspection and cooling system maintenance time, content, found problems and treatment methods and other information. This not only facilitates the management personnel to understand the operation status and maintenance history of the filter, but also provides a reference basis for subsequent maintenance work. At the same time, through the analysis of the archive data, can find out the filter operation rules and potential problems, for the development of a more scientific maintenance plan to provide a basis.

In summary, the maintenance and repair of the active harmonic filter is the key to ensure its long-term stable operation. Through regular inspection and cleaning, checking the electrical performance, maintaining the heat dissipation system and establishing maintenance and maintenance files and other measures, the service life of the filter can be effectively extended to improve the stability and reliability of the power system. In practice, we should formulate appropriate maintenance and repair plans according to the specific conditions of the filter and the operating environment, and strictly implement them to ensure the normal operation of the filter and the safety and stability of the power grid.
