Course Description

Introduction

This GLOMACS Power Quality, Harmonics Mitigation & Reactive Power Management online training course provides an important insight into power quality issues including power harmonics, nonlinear loads, voltage symmetry, waveform analysis, and harmonics mitigation techniques.   

The ever-increasing advancement of semiconductor-based power electronic devices and nonlinear loads, as well as rapid integration of non-conventional energy sources into grid networks can create harmful power quality issues in industrial systems and utility grids. To name a few, power electronic equipment, data servers, variable speed drivers, arc furnaces, big machines such as heavy-duty cranes, lifters, motor-driven conveyor belts, and large numbers of fluorescent lamps can cause catastrophic power quality issues in electrical power systems.

Electric parameters such as frequency and voltage magnitude / waveform / symmetry are normally influenced by the variations of load during normal system operation. These characteristics are also affected by system disturbances - e.g. harmonic distortion and voltage fluctuations - generated by certain equipment, and by electric faults such as arc flash or switching transient over-voltages.

Voltage and frequency fluctuations as well as waveform distortion and power harmonics are major power quality problems. Therefore, continuous monitoring, detection, and recording of power quality indicators is required to ensure a safe, reliable, and cost-effective power network.

This GLOMACS online training course on Power Quality, Harmonics Mitigation & Reactive Power Management will highlight:

  • Power Quality (PQ) Major Concepts
  • Power System Disturbances Due to PQ Issues
  • Power System Voltage Reliability and Security
  • Power Harmonics and the Associated Harmful Effects on Power Systems
