Power Quality Measurements – Essential Theory
Author: Velimir Lackovic
The decline in quality of power is a big issue due to an increase in the use of inverters in power electronics, an increase of unbalanced loads from large furnaces or rectifiers, and complex power distribution associated with power network interconnections for new energy plants. Poor power quality induces potential problems in receptacle/transmission devices and electronic apparatus malfunctions.
Power supply network issues that are induced by inadequate power quality are a frequent issue for both electric power providers and consumers. However, it is difficult to determine if the quality problem is related to the power provider or the consumer’s system. Power quality measurement is a critical parameter to determine the source of power quality issues as well as to develop efficient countermeasures.
