Power quality determines reliability of electrical equipment operation, performance of the assigned functions by it, service life. Problems of power quality attracted increased attention because of power quality degradation and not meeting customer expectations. Poor power quality has been shown to lead to reduced efficiencies, increased risk of downtime and higher energy and operating costs.

When it comes to power quality issues, the easiest and most effective solution to avoid unplanned shutdowns is the correction of voltage anomalies coming from the grid. This can be accomplished using harmonic filters, capacitors, and other protective equipment.

Rises in non-linear and other challenging loads in modern electrical networks present unique power quality challenges. Sensitive operations, irregular loads and isolated or weaker grids demand stricter grid codes and power quality standards to safeguard the reliability of an electrical system for smooth industrial and commercial processes. Harmonics distortions, voltage variations, poor power factor and load unbalance are among the key elements that not only test the reliability of modern electrical systems but also induce overall greater system losses.

By the end of this training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand common power quality and reliability terms
  • Know how to assess the impact of voltage sags on sensitive electrical equipment
  • Comprehend the influence of fault clearing on voltage stability
  • Calculate and use standardized reliability indices
  • Understand the sources of transient over voltages and be able to specify arresters
  • Know why harmonics are produced and be able to implement mitigation methods
  • Analyze the components of AC power and understand the relationship with voltage regulation

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Engineers and technicians new to the power industry
  • Intermediate-level engineers and technicians who seek to improve system reliability
  • Professionals involved with the assessment of power quality
  • Facility engineers and consultants responsible for mitigating power quality issues
  • Engineers tasked with monitoring system performance and reliability

Amongst a wide range of valuable topics, the following will be prioritised:

  • Voltage Sags and Interruptions
  • Power measurements
  • Power quality enhancement
  • Reliability Indices, Effects of Fault Clearing on Power Quality
  • Energy management
  • Renewable energy
  • Protection system
  • Power distortion causes and remedy
  • Power factor correction
  • Power quality analysis (practical)
