Power Quality Trouble Shooting and Problem Solving PQ-113  DSPS WI 4 Credit Hours

Power Quality Seminars Approved by Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services DSPS Course ID #  21617

Commercial and industrial companies are often faced with unexplained equipment malfunctions, equipment failures, or equipment interference problems. Power Quality Trouble Shooting and Problem Solving was designed to teach a method to troubleshoot various power quality problems and to learn how to extract meaningful information from wave forms and power quality data.

This four-hour seminar identifies many different power quality problems and explains a six-step process to understand the root cause and solve the problems. It also shows many waveform signatures and reveals the power quality problem associated with each of these.

Upon completion of this course, participants should have knowledge of the techniques they can employ to identify causes of power quality problems within a facility. They should also be able to recognize specific disturbances in the voltage or current wave forms.

This course applies to facility electrical maintenance personnel as well as for power quality engineers serving either industrial or commercial environments. For the maximum benefit of this course, participants should have a basic understanding of electrical systems, equipment, and measurement device.
