Variable Frequency Drives and Harmonics 


The focus of this white paper is to introduce and explain Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), how they work, and how they are utilized. This paper will also cover a few examples of why VFDs, during the rectification process, can generate harmonic distortion. This paper covers: 


  • Variable Frequency Drive Circuit 
  • Ideal 6 Pole Converters 
  • Higher Order Poles 
  • Non-Idealities with VFDs 
  • and more...
