On the 14th May 2019 we hosted an ABB training day on Harmonics and Mitigation Methods for the Water Industry. The interest for the training was very high, both morning and afternoon sessions were fully booked within a day of publishing them, prompting us to add another date.
The Course Itself
The training day was split into two sessions, a morning and an afternoon session with both sets of delegates invited to share lunch.
IDS Managing Director, Blaise Ford, kicked off proceedings with the welcome address and the usual housekeeping notices, before leaving the floor in favour for ABB’s Water Framework Manager, Martin Richardson.
The training objective for each 3-hour session consisted of the following outcomes:
- Understand the basic principles of harmonics.
- Know the basic harmonics mitigation techniques available and be able to select the appropriate ones in various scenarios.
- Be able to identify and deal with harmonics in both single-phase and three-phase applications.
- Have up-to-date knowledge of the latest standards set-out to deal with harmonics and how best to deal with them.
