Managing Power Quality in Electrical Distribution Systems

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:
Understand the electrical power quality issues
Apply the mitigation solutions in your distribution systems
Be aware of the effects of poor power quality on the electrical equipment
Broaden your knowledge of design concepts and applications of power quality solutions 
Review the electrical parameters and their impact on operation of electrical systems
Enhance your knowledge of power quality requirements
Gain more insight into the fundamentals of energy use optimization in electrical design
Upgrade your electrical system to improve energy efficiency and avoid power quality problems
Review transformer, substation, distribution systems, motor and other equipment applications

This course, focused on power quality concepts, revisits low and high voltage electrical circuits, equipment, systems and loads used in industrial and commercial facilities, and provides an understanding of the power quality issues in power distribution systems. You gain practical understanding what Power quality is, what causes the issues, what is the effect and how to fix them.

After the course participants will be able to apply the concepts in their work situations. They will be able to review the electrical systems and determine what mitigation solutions need to be applied. They will be able to review the substation, distribution systems, motor and other equipment electrical design procedures and their impact on operation of electrical systems.

Course Outline:

  • Review of basic electrical concepts
