About this Unit
This unit is to introduce students to power quality phenomena such as voltage sag/swell, distortions, unbalance, and flicker that occur in power systems. The unit also introduces terms and definitions associated with power quality, following which each phenomenon, that is, voltage sag/swell, transient overvoltage, and harmonics. In addition, flicker is presented and discussed in detail for students to understand the sources and impact of these occurrences on power system as well as typical mitigation techniques. Finally, students are introduced to power quality benchmarking, monitoring, assessment. In addition Advanced knowledge on network frequency responses is presented.
