Overview

This module aims to provide participants with the in-depth knowledge of the different power quality and reliability problems commonly encountered in power system network and their effects on the networks. Participants will also learn about the different technologies that are used by the power industry to mitigate power quality and reliability problems. The theories taught in the lecture will be complemented by hands-on practice using industrial standard computer-aided engineering software such as ETAP. Techniques on the analysis of real-world power quality and reliability problems are also emphasised in this module.

What Industry Experts Say?

“In recent years, as many electric utilities wrestle with deregulation issues, their customers are becoming even more concerned about the possible decline in power quality due to cost-cutting measures. Regulators throughout the world are trying to determine methods for assuring that the reliability and quality of the supply system does not deteriorate as deregulation of the industry takes place. Minimum standards for power quality have been established in Europe (EN 50160), but these do not include disturbances and reliability issues. Utilities and regulators also are interested in determining ways to benchmark levels of reliability and quality as part of developing strategies for enhanced reliability and power quality offerings”
