Industrial  power quality solutions generally consist of devices to deal with individual problems, and if more than one problem needs to be dealt with, more than one device is required. The unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) is designed to cope with multiple PQ issues. Power quality problems experienced at the grid connection point of industrial […]

Battery energy storage technologies for off-grid and transport applications

Energy storage systems play a crucial role in off-grid applications globally. Although various energy storage systems exist, this article considers different battery technologies for their suitability for off-grid and electric vehicle applications. Off-grid electricity can be defined as a stand-alone power system or mini-grid to typically provide a small community with electricity without the support […]

Downloading, analysing and reporting power quality data

When trying to understand energy consumption or power quality issues in your facility, you need data. Measurements are the ideal form of data, but you must then turn that data into usable information. That process is most commonly referred to as analysis and reporting. The analysis takes the raw data and turns it into a […]
