When power quality deteriorates, a lot of problems may arise. Some of the common problems are erratic equipment operation, transformer and motor overheating, interference and poor power efficiency. If these problems continue, the electrical system may eventually fail. It is a good idea to regularly measure the power quality of the system to maximize power efficiency and prolong equipment life.
Bad power quality can be corrected by conditioning the electrical facility. A combination of inductors and capacitors are used to suppress the power line distortion. However, the LC combination must be tuned precisely so that it suppresses a certain brand of harmonics. To determine the type and amount of distortion in the electrical line, power quality analyzers are used.
One of the popular devices today is the Fluke 1750 Power Quality Analyzer.
The Fluke 1750 Power Quality Analyzer lets you measure distortion in three phase systems and automatically records every power quality parameter. You even have the option to store the results in its internal 1 GB storage.
