Conventional engineering terminology, which were as per linear load scenario are changing now with more non-linear loads being used by electricity consumers.
With the introduction of Smart Grid, there is expected growth in both lower voltage levels (distributed generation) and in new types of consumption
With the increasing focus on energy efficiency Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) usage have increased rapidly in last few years. VFD penetration in the industrial domain has shot up for attaining energy efficiency, process optimization or control over process paramters. VFD’s are becoming an integral part of the industries and commercial establishments too.
Power quality is important when market liberalization focuses on electricity price and regulators are focused only on energy efficiency. Lack of power quality may cause damage and the total cost of using electrical energy can be thus doubled. PQ costs may, in extreme cases, reach values of millions of dollars, as was reported by EPRI for brokerage operations.
Understanding of "Financial Impact of Poor Power Quality" along with its technical aspects is a key to mitigate power quality issues. Keeping this in mind, APQI has developed half day training module for electricity consumers that focuses on losses incurred in a business due to poor power quality. This training program/workshop is held exclusively in house for your team enabling them to relate and discuss power quality issues faced by your facility.
