What are power line filters used for
Power line filters are useful in emission reduction in switched-mode power supplies or machinery producing steam, smoke or carbon dioxide. These filters are also necessary to decrease levels of electromagnetic interference which may cause undesired behaviour in radio transmission equipment and nuclear operations.
Types of power line filters
Power line filters can be used in single phase, three phase or DC (direct current) power applications, depending on the equipment in question. Electric and electronic devices like switched-mode power supplies, motor controllers, induction cooking and food service equipment make use of single phase filters. Three phase filters are common in frequency converters, motor drives, and machine tools. DC filters are typically found in cell phones, flat screen TVs and electric or hybrid vehicles.
