Power Quality Monitoring and conditioning

Overview and definition of power quality (PQ): Sources of pollution, and regulations, Power quality problems : rapid voltage fluctuations voltage unbalance, Voltage dips and voltage swells, Short duration outages,

Definitions Voltage sag analysis and mitigation: Sag caused by motor starting, Sag caused by utility fault clearing, Sag mitigation, Sag magnitude and duration calculations, RMS voltage, peak Examples of sag magnitude, calculation in 1-phase systems, Equipment performance in presence of sag, Computers, AC and DC drives.

Harmonics: Effects-within the power system, Interference with communication Harmonic measurements. Harmonic elimination

Harmonic distortion: Power system harmonics: harmonic analysis, Harmonic sources-the static converters, Transformer magnetization and non-linearities, Rotating machines, arc furnaces, Fluorescent lighting. Introduction to power converters, Fourier analysis, Total harmonic distortion, rms and average value calculations, Arcing and saturable devices, Effects of harmonic distortion, System response characteristics

Principles for controlling harmonics: Locating sources of harmonics, Passive and active filters, Harmonic filter design

Monitoring power quality: Monitoring essentials, Power quality measuring equipment, Current industry trends.

Power Conditioning: Electric power conditioning, Active and passive filters
