The increasing demand and applications of non-linear load in industries nowadays greatly affects the quality of the power system. Unfortunately, most of the older electrical designs of industries have no anticipation for these kinds of loads. Nuisance tripping and unplanned downtimes in industrial and commercial establishments greatly affect production and contribute a great economical loss.The stability of power system and mitigations of power quality problems now lies on the hands of Engineering Team and Maintenance personnel. This technical training will guide maintenance engineers and improve their technical know-how on how to deal with the power quality issues.
This course provides theoretical and practical knowledge of the issues related to power quality and harmonics. The objective of the course is to familiarize attendees with the terminology and concepts to evaluate the quality of power in an electric power system, and allow them to identify the source of the problem. The effects of harmonics on various power system components and methods of reducing excessive harmonics will also be addressed. IEEE and IEC recommendations, along with National Electric Code requirements will also be discussed in some detail.
Salvo Global’s course will help attendees identify power quality and harmonic problems, and to will provide them with tools and methods in order to avoid such problems either during design or during the normal and emergency operation of the electric power system.
