Power quality analysis is conducted to find existence of power disturbances (power outage; over-voltage; under-voltage; sags; swells; surge; transient; flicker; harmonics), locate the source of power disturbances and find ways to mitigate power disturbances. The ultimate goal for power quality engineering services is to reduce power disturbance related downtime and provide energy efficiency.
Downtime is virtually intolerable in the manufacturing sector of world-wide economy. Energy Control Systems, a full-service power quality consulting firm, unveils a report that states "$188 Billion dollars a year of lost time and revenue can be attributed to power related problems." Power Specialists at Energy Control Systems also noted that Computer World magazine reported “a price tag of $78,191 per hour cost on computer downtime for the average company” and, according to Contingency Planning Research Inc., “power problems are at the root of nearly 50% of data loss at computer installations in the United States”.
Business operations have adopted various organizational quality tools as a corporate culture to reduce losses arising from process variation. These tools measure input/output process parameters to control and improve efficiency of organizational processes. While the organizational quality practices assist enhancing the efficiency of the operator, the efficiency of the electronic equipment is largely dependent on the quality of power delivered through the power distribution system of the facility. Most of the electronic equipment is vulnerable to fluctuations in power supply and is sensitive to power disturbances.
As per EPRI publications, “many electronically advanced business facilities are unable to fully support and deliver the required quality of power for advanced processes as computation, information processing, communications, security, safety and control”.
Power quality engineering service involves identification of power disturbances, mitigation of power disturbances , enhancing reliability of power protection systems, back-up power systems and enhancing efficiency of sensitive control and communication systems.
