Why QT&E for Harmonic Mitigation

Harmonic Mitigating Transformers are a powerful tool to eliminate harmonics based Power Quality problems. Whether for internal building or equipment protection or to meet utility requirements, Quality Transformer and Electronics has the experience and expertise to ensure your harmonics challenges are solved.

Defining the Harmonics Problem

We closely partner with our customers, working with their engineering staffs, to review harmonics data and together define the specific problems. Not all system needs and system harmonics are identical and our goal is to help you improve your power quality with a transformer designed to fit your specific harmonic profile.

Providing A Custom Tailored Solution

QT&E takes your specifications and designs a solution to fit your specific needs. Whether mitigating the Triplen harmonics (3rd, 9th, 15th), or the 5th or 7th. We have the engineering expertise to design a solution to meet your system’s needs.

Manufacturing Quality and Reliability

We design conservatively and build parts that run cool and are solid and built to last. Our customers have mission critical applications where downtime is unacceptable. We take everything into consideration when developing product specifications. Even the operating environment can be critical.

Providing Support and Service

At Quality Transformer and Electronics, customer service begins on the first call or email and never stops. We work to ensure your experience with QT&E meets or exceeds your expectations. Units are shipped on time with the appropriate Certification or Test Report forms, First Article Reports or User Manuals. And product technical information and support is available at your need.
