What are harmonics and why do they matter?

Posted on April 17, 2017 by SPOC Automation

Electrical harmonics are a big problem in the oilfield. Every device connected to the grid is susceptible to harmonic interference and low power quality. Worse, harmonic distortions do not discriminate between residential and industrial users.

Solving harmonics in the oilfield is critical to protect both your production and your equipment. It also helps to improve power quality for everyone on the grid. We’ve created a short video to explore harmonics and a cost-effective way for you to do something about it.


While you can’t control the power quality that arrives at your facility, you can control its quality when you use it and return it to the grid.
