The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America (Waukegan, IL) has announced the release of the MV1000 medium voltage AC drive family. Designed for energy savings and improved process control, MV1000 drives combine compact modular design, high efficiency, low harmonics, and industry leading MTBF into a medium voltage drive solution that is compatible with Yaskawa’s popular 1000 series low voltage AC drive products. Yaskawa’s Smart Harmonics™ Technology reduces input Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) to less than 2.5 percent without filters, which exceeds the requirements of IEEE519-1992 by almost 50 percent, says the company. This technology also provides galvanic isolation between power input and output. The MV1000 uses two 5 voltage step bridges per phase to generate a high quality 17-level line-to-line voltage output delivered to the motor.
