Advanced Power System Quality, Monitoring & Harmonics
Course Description
Power must be supplied that allows loads to operate effectively, regardless the size of the electrical system. Power disturbances often cross the meter boundary between electrical utility and user causing motor overheating, transformer failure, nuisance tripping, data corruption, light flickering and voltage sags and swells. More equipment is in use today than ever before that is sensitive to power quality problems: VFDs, PLCs, computers, electronic ballasts, data processing and medical equipment. These same loads are often the source of power quality problems. The ability to quickly identify, analyze and remedy power quality problems will help ensure metering accuracy, lengthen the life of electrical equipment and improve power system availability. The Power Quality webinar combines extensive field measurement and study experience to familiarize attendees with the terminology and concepts to evaluate it. The effects of harmonics on various power system components and methods of reducing excessive harmonics will also be addressed. IEEE recommendations, requirements of Canadian Standards Association are also emphasized in this course.
