The increasing use of equipment sensitive to power system disturbances and the related economic aspects, the increasing awareness of power quality issues and deregulation have created a need for understanding the causes of these problems and the ways to solve. The course covers the Power quality issues, power frequency disturbances, electrical transients and earthing systems in electrical power systems. The course concerns the sources of distortion (loads) and the interaction between those and the propagation of the distortion in the power system. Effects on the power system are also indicated. Harmonics, its effects on electric power system and how to overcome are highlighted.


Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will understand and learn the following :-

  • Power Quality definitions and issues in electrical Power System.
  • Voltage sag, voltage swing and power frequency disturbances
  • Earthing methods, Bonding and static electricity affects on power quality
  • Harmonics In Electrical Power Systems
  • Power factor correction and Electromagnetic interferences and their consequences on power quality
