Course Description

Introduction

Power quality is commonly defined as the power grid’s ability to supply a clean and stable power flow as a constantly available power supply. The power flow should have a pure sinusoidal wave form and it should remain within specified voltage and frequency tolerances. The emergence of smart grids has led to an increase in the electronics equipment, component, and devices. This results to apparent effects of harmonics distortions. The presence of harmonics sometimes may cripple the electrical installation network, hence sophisticated modes of harmonics mitigation are now in placed to prevent downtime and outages.

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.   

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

  • Power Quality (PQ) Major Concepts and Characteristics
  • Power System Disturbances Due to PQ Issues
  • Power System Quality Related to Smart Grids
  • Voltage and Current Harmonics and the Associated Harmful Effects on Power Systems
  • The Triplen Effects and Harmonics Sequence
  • Harmonics Monitoring and Mitigation Techniques
  • Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS)
  • Grounding Systems and Surge Protection
