About this book

With the generalized use of personal computers, microelectronic-based instrumentation and other susceptible devices, the subject of power quality and its relationship to the vulnerability of high-tech facilities is becoming an increasing concern, not only to the utility companies but also to the end-customer. In the 21st century, instrumentation and control operations require high quality and ultra-reliable power in quantities and time frames never experienced before.

Power Quality: Mitigation Technologies in a Distributed Environment presents a solid theoretical foundation of the modern mitigation technologies employed in the power quality arena, and provides an overview of the most recent challenges in this field. Readers will learn about:

  • how to deal with the multifaceted characteristics of power quality studies;
  • how circuit and process design can be affected by the most common power disturbances;
  • the implications that electromagnetic compatibility has on the equipment and installation design;
  • how power electronic devices can improve the power quality of the distribution supply; and,
  • the advances in IT that can support a better power quality.

Power Quality: Mitigation Technologies in a Distributed Environment introduces the advanced concepts associated with power quality to engineers and students. It will make an excellent reference for facility electrical power engineers and maintenance technicians.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book on power quality introduces advanced topics on power quality. It covers topics on measurement methods and mitigation technologies used to improve power quality. The book gives a good introduction to some basic concepts in power quality … . It is recommended for those in academia or for engineers studying power quality who have not studied or used the methods presented in the book and would like to learn more about various mitigation methods." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 24 (2), 2008)
