Power Quality Tools and Precision Power Analyzers
Power Quality is a measure of how well a system supports reliable operation of its loads. A power disturbance or event can involve voltage, current, or frequency. Power disturbances can originate in consumer power systems, consumer loads, or the utility.
What is a Power Disturbance? Power disturbances are defined in terms of magnitude and duration.
Disturbances range from transients that last for microseconds to outages that continue for hours.
When a power disturbance falls outside operating limits, equipment may be disrupted or damaged.
The Costs of Poor Power Quality Can be Significant! Lost production: Each time production is interrupted, your business loses profit on product that is not manufactured and sold.
Damaged product: Interruptions can damage a partially complete product, causing the material to be re-run or scrapped.
Energy cost: Electric utilities may charge penalties on poor power factor or high peak demands.
