Reactor

Hello Anivaldo

 

There are two types of reactors used with VSDs, DC Bus chokes and AC Line reactors.

 

The major purposes of these reactors are to reduce the harmonic content of the input current (improve distortion power factor) and to reduce the conducted EMC noise on the supply.

 

Some invertors have either of these reactors built in as standard, and others do not. The VSDs that do not include the reactors are smaller and cheaper, but will often require them to be mounted separately in order to comply with CE regulations.

 

Best regards,

Hello Anivaldo

 

If you get an opportunity, have a look at the input current waveform and you will find that it is made up of short high amplitude current pulses on the crest of the waveform. This is due to the capacitive input filter. see http://www.lmphotonics.com/vsd/vsd_03.htm

The addition of the reactor will stretch these pulses.
