Power quality audit

Power quality is one of the most important areas which goes unnoticed and has a great effect on the performance of the equipment which affects its efficiency and energy consumed by the equipment.

  • Decreased production
  • Increased power consumption
  • Penalty fess paid for low power factor
  • Damaged or malfunctioning equipment
  • Decreased life span of the equipment
  • Electrical rework

Some of the major parameters which are studied during the power quality study are

  • Apparent power
  • Reactive power
  • True power
  • Power factor
  • Total current
  • Total current harmonic distortions
  • Total voltage
  • Total voltage harmonic distortions

This data analysis gives what are the causes of poor power quality and how it can be rectified for the effective and efficient performance of the equipment and the plant as a whole.
