DV/DT filters

On systems that run 400 V class general-purpose motors by voltage-type PWM system inverters using ultra high-speed switching devices (e.g. IGBT), surge voltage, that is dependent on cable length, cable laying methods, cable constants, and other factors, sometimes causes the insulation of the motor winding to deteriorate. For this reason, measures for suppressing surge voltage are performed by installing a DC reactor or surge suppression filter on the inverter output end where the insulation-reinforced motor is used.
