What is Power Quality?
Power Quality (PQ) is the degree to which the voltage, frequency, and waveform of a power supply system conform to established specifications.
Why is PQ important?
PQ problems, such as voltage sages, transients, and system harmonics, can have a big impact on facility owners’ bottom lines through lost productivity and equipment repairs and replacement. In fact, research shows that most of these power quality issues are caused by problems with the facilities themselves rather than the utility company. Because of some of these costly issues that come with power quality issues, it is a good financial sense for owners and managers to be proactive in identifying and addressing PQ issues before they cause damage to critical equipment
