How we do it

We provide a neutral platform for exchange of knowledge and best practices concerning power quality. Our website www.apqi.org is the single largest resource for discussion papers, research and data on Power Quality in all the countries we work. We work with a focus on shared learning, transparent exchange of information and active engagement in the field. Our growing knowledge base on PQ offers description, diagnosis and recommendations that can help better apply and understand issues concerning Power Quality. Our activities bring together international organisations, governments, industry, non-governmental organisations and academics.

The table below summarises the approach taken by APQI to achieve its specific objective of raising awareness of managers and decision-makers in Asia and to build the capacity of electrical engineers and electrical system designers on power quality.
