Part 6: AC Power Distribution Systems & Standards (Power Quality)

Published by Nikola Zlatanov* Power Quality Terms Technical Overview Introduction Sensitive electronic loads deployed today by users require strict requirements for the quality of power delivered to loads. For electronic equipment, power disturbances are defined in terms of amplitude and duration by the electronic equipment operating envelope. Electronic loads may be damaged and disrupted, withContinue reading “Part 6: AC Power Distribution Systems & Standards (Power Quality)”

Power Quality Standards

Published by Mark McGranaghan, Electrotek Concepts, Inc. Electrical Contractor Magazine, Power Quality for the Electrical Contractor Course Introduction Power quality has always been important. However, for many years the equation defining power quality was very simple: POWER QUALITY = RELIABILITY Customer loads were linear in nature. When a sinusoidal voltage was supplied to them, theyContinue reading “Power Quality Standards”
