As more electronic devices are connected to power systems, the “quality” of the power becomes more important. “Quality” can be defined many ways. Stable voltages and undistorted waveforms are two characteristics which are very desirable in power systems. Grounding affects voltage stability, and more importantly, is critical to personal safety. Harmonics are a mathematical model used to analyze distorted waveforms.
The use of a power quality analyzer can help to determine the electrical efficiency and assess the power quality in an electrical system.
The Fluke 1735 Three-Phase Power Logger is perfect for applications such as load studies that verify electrical system capacity before adding loads, energy assessments that quantify energy consumption before and after improvements, to justify energy saving devices, harmonics measurements that uncover harmonic issues that can damage or disrupt critical equipment, and voltage event capture that monitor for dips and swells that cause spurious resets of nuisance circuit breaker tripping.
