Project overview

Harmonic interference was detected in close proximity to the ECG equipment in the new outpatient’s wing. This interference put the ECG test results into question and caused the ECG test area to be temporarily closed.
The Problem
Part of the hospital and an important patient service was closed.
The Consequences
Initially, we carried out a power quality audit. We found that the ECG interference was coming from the main supply cable which carried a high level of third harmonic current. 2 x 100 amp Active Harmonic Filters were installed and programme
The Solution
The hospital was able to reopen the ECG test area and continue its important, lifesaving work.
