Harmonic mitigating transformers
Harmonic mitigating transformers curb harmonic currents that K–factor transformers do not, reduce transformer heating caused by harmonics and improve upstream power quality.
Harmonic mitigating transformers curb harmonic currents that K%%MDASSML%%factor transformers do not, reduce transformer heating caused by harmonics and improve upstream power quality, all while maintaining the NEMA TP%%MDASSML%%1 standard for energy efficiency. The transformers accomplish harmonic mitigation by providing good source impedance and sine wave phase shifting. One of three models is selected based on the type of building or installation.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
