Meetings

Omaha Section Meeting

Power Line Harmonics - How to Effectively Apply IEEE-519 in System Design with Peter Wilder

OZONE LOUNGE [bar area in Anthony's Steakhouse] ($18), 7220 F St

Tuesday, April 9th; check-in starts at 11:30 a.m.

The presentation will touch on VFD application but primarily dive into IEEE-519 which deals with harmonics. Harmonics are created by electrical and mechanical equipment with nonlinear loads which cause rough, or abrupt, short pulses. These pulses cause current waveforms to become distorted and effect current flow to other parts of the facility’s power system. Peter’s presentation will discuss proper system design to mitigate harmonics and also help identify when harmonics are a concern for the facilities that our design engineering community is working on.

Peter Wilder is a Senior HVAC Sales Applications Engineer with ABB where he has served in this role for 5 years and has a total of over 10 years experience in working directly with variable frequency drives. Over the course of those 10+ years Peter has served in various positions and roles such as; technical support, field commissioning, service, testing, training, sales and sales applications. Peter has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
