Power quality issues can be the cause of sudden outages, fires, or unnaturally high wear and tear on equipment. Employees are put at risk, and high costs and damage to equipment are incurred. The cause is often a mystery, as power quality problems go undetected and can continue to cause damage.
You can prevent this from happening with proper power quality recording and data analysis. Problems become visible and you can initiate appropriate measures to avoid negative consequences and eliminate the causes.
The voltage in the grid can be influenced by a wide variety of factors. Causes are, for example, grid distortions from power electronics and rectifiers, resonance or lightning strikes.
In order to assess the state of the power quality, various factors are considered. Some typical factors are:
Certified measuring methods with high measuring accuracy are used to check the power quality according to EN 50160 at the power transfer point (PCC) as well as in the internal power grid according to EN 61000-2-4. We support you with the UMG 512-PRO, which is certified with class A to record your power quality in compliance with standards.
