On experiences of the application of high-frequency power converters for ESP energisation
2004 (English)In: ICESP IX CONFERENCE, 2004Conference paper (Other academic)
In order to improve Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) efficiency and system cost a new technology for ESP power supplies, high-frequency power conversion, has been introduced.The first paper on commercial installations was presented about ten years ago (EPRI 1995, Toronto). Products based on this technology have been available on the market since 1993. With the first generation of products the applications were limited to small size ESPs. Through the years the scope has widened and today covers many processes. Still, the available power level limits the use on larger ESP bus sections.
The estimated number, world wide, of installed ESP power supplies based on high-frequency power conversion is close to 1000. This paper aims to evaluate the experiences, which have been gained through these installations. Aspects such as ESP efficiency, cost and reliability are discussed.
