Why the Need for PQ Analysis is on the Rise

A useful tool at all life cycle stages, making PQ monitoring a part of an electrical distribution system’s E3MP is critical.

As electrical distribution systems continue to improve with the rapidly evolving technological advances, the benefits of power quality measurements and associated analysis continue to increase. One clear example is the expanding use of microprocessor-based protective relaying and metering. Electric utility power providers are using smart devices in systems to move toward a peak usage billing structure and monitor large commercial/industrial customers that are potentially inducing power factor
