Impact of Power Quality Events on Motor Driven Systems

Over their operating lives, motors and other equipment encounter various power quality events, including voltage unbalance, single-phasing, and momentary interruptions. Having familiarity with power quality events and how they impact facility operations is important. Adding equipment monitors and relays may provide long-term solutions to power quality issues.

This webinar will analyze various power quality events to consider including specific examples that may aide in troubleshooting power quality electrical problems. Learning objectives:

  • Understand electric utility basics
  • Identify the most common types of power quality events
  • Examine various power quality solutions
  • Achieve long-term reliable performance from motor driven equipment
