Power Quality Analysis



Power quality analysis and monitoring the quality of electrical power may be described in the following ways: Continuity of service – Variation in voltage magnitude – Transient voltages and currents – and Harmonic content in the waveforms

Power quality is a compatibility problem. Is the equipment that is connected to the grid compatible with the events on the grid, and is the power delivered by the grid, including the events, compatible with the equipment that is connected?

Each of these power quality issues has a different cause. Some problems are a result of the shared infrastructure. For example, a fault on the network may cause a dip that will affect some customers and the higher the level of the fault, the greater the number affected, or a problem on one customer’s site may cause a transient that affects all other customers on the same subsystem. Other problems, such as harmonics, arise within the customer’s own installation and may or may not propagate onto the network and so affect other customers. Harmonic problems can be dealt with by a combination of good design practice and well proven reduction equipment.
