Frequently Asked Questions For TCI TransCoil HGA Harmonic Filters

TCI TransCoil 3/20/2018
Yes, communication options include Modbus RTU over RS485 and EtherNet/IP. The HGA now includes a large, 6”, 65k color HMI Operator Interface which allows users to quickly and easily set-up, monitor performance and remotely control the active filter for superior control and performance.

Can HGA settings be changed to fix displacement power factor before reducing harmonics?
The HGA filter’s programming can be changed to accommodate the adjustment in primary functions; however, this would become a custom filter.

Can the HGA be applied on systems containing DC drives?
The HGA is not currently configured to operate on DC converter loads.

Is startup factory commissioning required for the HGA?
Factory commissioning is not required. The HGA should be fully operational immediately upon installation per the guidelines within the Installation, Operation, & Maintenance manual.

Will the HGA correct displacement power factor?
The HGA will keep the current in phase with the line voltage, however, if it reaches full capacity, the distortion power factor will increase and the total power factor (KW/KVA) will decrease from unity. If additions to the system cause the HGA to reach full capacity, additional HGA units can be installed to correct the situation.
