High-voltage DC filters for power-hungry applications

Whilst much attention is often focussed toward AC mains filtering, requirements for high-voltage DC filters with equally high current ratings have become more and more commonplace. In response, MPE has extended and updated its existing range of DC filters to meet these increased requirements. This new MPE range now covers applications with supplies up to 1500V DC and includes filters with current ratings up to 2400A.

High-voltage DC filters for vast chamber application

Back in 2015 MPE was asked to participate in the design stages of a new in-house test chamber for clients in the Midlands area of the UK. The suite of MPE filters supplied comprised both AC and DC filters of various current ratings and included custom 2500V DC 2000A units complete with end enclosures. These very high current (VHC) DC filter units are 3m high and 2m wide, weigh two tonnes and are a further extension of MPE’s well established high-current DC filter ranges.
