Power Quality Measurement and Analysis

PQM 101: Power Quality Measurement and Analysis
4-Day Class (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 pm)

The effect of power quality problems in industrial, commercial, and residential systems can range from a minor inconvenience to costly downtime. This course covers the fundamentals of power generation, distribution, Quality, monitoring, and troubleshooting. Online and portable power monitoring and testing concepts are detailed. Power quality measurements are introduced with common applications.

As there is an increasing interest and need for a reliable electricity supply, this course is for engineers and professionals who want to know how they can set up a load study, how they can measure the power quality from the power utility or how to detect disturbances in their facilities.

Who can Attend:

This course is intended for engineers, electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair and/or troubleshoot power and auxiliary systems. The participant should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity, wiring and mathematics.


This class will provide the basic skills maintenance and plants engineer/Technician should have including:

  • Recognize symptoms of power quality problems including sags, swells, under or overvoltage, harmonics, unbalance, Flicker, transients and electrical noise.
  • Understand the problems and mitigate against the effects of harmonics on rotating machinery, transformers, cables and other assets
  • Understand how to avoid over loading and degrading critical assets
  • Develop vital skills in power quality measurement and interpretation that are in short supply.
  • Classify power quality events according to IEEE and public utility standards.
  • Explain proper application and interpret results of power quality monitoring equipment.
  • Practical Power Quality Training on Load and Energy studies.
