The demand for increased reliability and the heightened sensitivity of electronic loads has forced the modern facility operations to take a new approach.? A successful strategy requires an understanding of power quality issues and knowledge of available solutions.? This presentation will begin with an overview of the power quality issues impacting facility operations, especially harmonics, which are often difficult to understand.? In addition, the presentation will demonstrate the detrimental effects of several common power quality problems, as well as the improvements to be expected from different types of mitigating equipment.? The following power quality issues will be discussed during the presentation:
â?¢? ? ? Grounding and Sensitive Electronic Equipment
â?¢? ? ? Multi Cycle Voltage Variations
â?¢? ? ? Surges and Transients
â?¢? ? ? Harmonics and IEEE 519 considerations
