Competency Based and Hands On Training On Power Quality and Harmonics
The distribution code defines power quality as the quality of the voltage, including its frequency, and the resulting current, that are measured in the Distribution System during normal conditions. Since Power Quality issues affects every consumer in the Grid, the Code dictates standards that to be followed and measured at the point of common
The increasing demand and applications of non-linear load in industries nowadays greatly affects the quality of the
power system. Unfortunately, most of the older electrical designs of industries have no anticipation for these kinds
of loads. Nuisance tripping and unplanned downtimes in industrial and commercial establishments greatly affect
production and contribute a great economical loss.
The stability of power system and mitigations of power quality problems now lies on the hands of Engineering
Team and Maintenance personnel. This technical training will guide maintenance engineers and improve their
technical know-how on how to deal with the power quality issues.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM:
At the end of the program, the participants will be able to:
• Familiarize with the different power quality issues and perspectives.
• Identify different power quality problems.
• Specify solutions for a particular power quality problem.
• Understand the cause and effect of harmonics to electrical system.
• Identify the ways to mitigate the effects of harmonics.
• Design a harmonic filter.
• Specify the transformer K factor rating.
• Understand the usage of power quality analyzer
includes snacks, workbook, CPD points, training materials and certificate of attendance
