Welding Machine - Impact on System and Mitigation

With advancement in technologies, automobile and engineering sector has seen numerous changes in manufacturing technologies in last couple of decades. One of the key change is the type and use of welding machines. Welding process, which was earlier a time consuming and manual process, now has been converted to robotic, automated and more advanced precision welding machines. With upgrade in the technology of welding process, industry has been benefited immensely in terms of quality, reliability and productivity. However, with the improved technology and it’s associated benefits, these welding machines create power quality issues.

This case study presents an industrial situation where Power Quality Issues, arising out of use of welding machines, were successfully addressed and resolved.
