Power Quality Monitoring and Analysis
The Power Quality Monitoring and Analysis Seminar is designed for engineers and technicians who want to know how to identify, analyze and correct power quality problems in industrial and commercial power systems. You will learn and practice these techniques in our Power Systems Experience Center where we are able to produce, monitor and measure actual power interruptions, transient overvoltage events and harmonics currents in our 480-volt three phase distribution system.
More than 50% of the time is dedicated to hands-on practice using a variety of portable and panel mount monitors and analyzers. Solution demonstrations include sag ride-thru, surge protection, filters, active filters, phase-shifting, etc. Students are also encouraged to bring their own analyzers to learn new uses for them. Each training program participant receives a comprehensive classroom reference manual and flash drive.
- Power Quality Fundamentals – Disturbances, Harmonics, Transients, Grounding, Example Waveforms, Equipment Tolerances, ITIC, IEEE 519-2014, and IEC Standards
- Techniques for identifying and analyzing power quality problems
- Actual case studies and their real-world solutions
Practice sessions include:
- Build your own equipment tolerance diagram
- Monitoring transients, subcycle disturbances and flicker
- Monitoring harmonics
- Evaluating power quality problems using power monitor data
- Special considerations for making measurements in high-resistance grounded distribution systems and delta-wye power transformer circuits
