Power Quality Monitoring

Project Description

The client had an issue with nuisance tripping within the plant and they were struggling to identify the cause of the fault.

They asked Lithendo Consulting to commission a Power Quality Monitoring study to assess the quality of power received from the supply utility. As part of the study, Lithendo Consulting recorded and analysed the following variables:

  • Harmonic Content from the Voltage Signal (Fundamental to 31)
  • Harmonic Content from the Current Signal (Fundamental to 31)
  • Power Factor
  • Load Balance
  • Real, Reactive and Apparent Power consumption
  • Transients
  • Flicker
  • Phase Sequence
  • K-Factor
