This 2-hour course provides a technical basis for power system quality as a design consideration and explains different methods of solving power quality problems. Unlike other electrical design requirements, power quality design solutions are very dependent on the types of transients and disturbances that can and will occur in power systems. Also, power quality solutions often involve a certain level of compromise between the electrical system design and the design of the end-use equipment. Power quality is an issue that should be addressed at the facility level in order to be certain that the electrical distribution system is designed properly for the anticipated disturbances and the effects of harmonic distortion.
Topics such as: unbalance voltage, harmonic distortions, nonlinear loads, neutral circuit sizing for nonlinear loads and k-factor transformers are discussed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
