Power Quality Analysis
Power Quality is a measure of how well a system supports reliable operation of its loads. A power disturbance or event can involve voltage, current, or frequency. Power disturbances can originate in consumer power systems, consumer loads, or the utility.
The Costs of Poor Power Quality due to low power factor can be Significant!
Lost production: Each time production is interrupted, your business loses profit on product that is not manufactured and sold.
Damaged product: Interruptions can damage a partially complete product, causing the material to be re-run or scrapped.
Energy cost: Electric utilities may charge penalties on poor power factor or high peak demands.
