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!Poor quality of power causes not only physical damage to equipment, but also results in downtime, which, in turn, lowers productivity and a substantial increase in energy costs.
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.
Invest in the Right Set of Power Quality Tools!The importance of investing in the right set of tools to monitor power quality issues, and prevent them in the future, cannot be stressed enough. Fluke offers an extensive range of excellent power meters and other power quality tools for troubleshooting, preventive maintenance, and long-term recording and analysis in industrial applications and utilities.
Why Fluke Power Meters?The applications of a Fluke power meter are many, including motor start-up analysis, detection of unbalanced situations that can lead to premature equipment failures, verification of power distribution systems and measurement and recording of power quality parameters.
Fluke’s range of power meters include both single-phase and three-phase power quality analyzers for predictive maintenance, quality of service compliance testing and load studies. A standard Fluke power meter doubles as a power monitor in order to keep a close watch on disturbances. A Fluke power monitor meets the new IEC Class A standards for flicker and power quality.
Fluke’s easy-to-use power meters effectively help you to locate, predict, prevent and troubleshoot problems in power distribution systems and are an absolute must-have for your toolkit.
