Main description

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO POWER QUALITY--UPDATED AND EXPANDED

Electrical Power Systems Quality, Third Edition, is a complete, accessible, and up-to-date guide to identifying and preventing the causes of power quality problems. The information is presented without heavy-duty equations, making it practical and easily readable for utility engineers, industrial engineers, technicians, and equipment designers. This in-depth resource addresses the essentials of power quality and tested methods to improve compatibility among the power system, customer equipment, and processes.

Coverage includes:

  • Standard terms and definitions for power quality phenomena
  • Protecting against voltage sags and interruptions
  • Harmonic phenomena and dealing with harmonic distortion
  • Transient overvoltages
  • Long-duration voltage variations
  • Benchmarking power quality
  • International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards
  • Maintaining power quality in distributed generation systems
  • Common wiring and grounding problems, along with solutions
  • Site surveys and power quality monitoring
