CSN® Filter- and Damping Resistors

For the majority of the CSN® Filter- and Damping Resistors the design is based on CSN® Resistor Webs. The resistor units provide operation at high continuous power, excellence voltage strength and low inductivity while needing only little space.

CSN® Filter Resistors are used in HVDC applications as well as in reactive power compensation applications (like SVC, MSCDN, STATCOM) all over the world and have proven their reliability – even under harsh environmental conditions – for long time periods.

CSN® Damping Resistors are most often used for building-up RC-circuits in industrial plants as well as for damping of magnetic cores and reactors.

The CSN® Filter- and Damping Resistors are characterized by:

  • proven design for both, indoor and outdoor applications
  • excellent high voltage strength
  • high specific load due to very good convection conditions
  • low inductance and capacity
  • long-term stability
  • low weight
  • nearly unlimited adaptability to specified applications

Filter resistors with rated max. cont. power up to 7540 kW and insulation levels of up to 1075 kVBIL across the resistor live part have been delivered by Schniewindt. Every single CSN® Filter- and Damping Resistor is manufactured according to individual customer requirements.
