What effect would there be on a application requring a mirus lineator on an ATV58 drive?

The lineator uses an inductive / resistive / capacitive network to reduce harmonics.  There is a voltage drop on the output of the inductor due to a large impedance.   To correct this a set of capacitor banks are used to boost the output of the lineator.  Boosting the voltage can cause an over voltage fault on a VFD; of course this is dependent on the incoming line voltage and may result in nuisance trips.
To resolve the overvoltage fault an additional inductor is added to the output of the lineator circuit or capacitors can be removed.  The result is a lower output voltage on the lineator.   See attachment for details
