Power Quality Monitoring
Power quality monitoring is the process of gathering, analyzing, and interpreting raw measurement data into useful information. The process of gathering data is usually carried out by continuous measurement of voltage and current over an extended period. The process of analysis and interpretation has been traditionally performed manually, but recent advances in signal processing and artificial intelligence fields have made it possible to design and implement intelligent systems to automatically analyze and interpret raw data into useful information with minimum human intervention.
Power quality monitoring programs are often driven by the demand for improving the system wide power quality performance. Many industrial and commercial customers have equipment that is sensitive to power disturbances, and, therefore, it is more important to understand the quality of power being provided. Examples of these facilities include computer networking and telecommunication facilities, semiconductor and electronics manufacturing facilities, biotechnology and pharmaceutical laboratories, and financial data-processing centers. Hence, in the last decade many utility companies have implemented extensive power quality monitoring programs.
