Introduction: Power quality-voltage quality, power quality evaluation procedures term and definitions: general classes of power quality problems, transients, long duration voltage variation, short duration voltage variations, voltage imbalance, waveform distortion, power quality terms.  


Voltage sags and interruptions: Sources of sags and interruptions, estimating voltage sag performance, fundamental principles of protection, motor starting sags. Transient over voltages: Sources of transient over voltages, principles of over voltages protection, utility capacitor switching transients.


Transient over voltages: Fundamentals of harmonics: Harmonic distortion, voltage versus transients, harmonic indexes, harmonic sources from commercial loads, harmonic sources from Industrial loads, effects of harmonic distortion, intra harmonics. 


Applied harmonics: Harmonic distortion evaluations, principles for controlling harmonics, harmonic studies, devices for controlling harmonic distortion, harmonic filters, standards of harmonics.  POWER QUALITY BENCHMARK: Introduction, benchmark process, power quality contract.


Power quality benchmark: power quality state estimation, including power quality in distribution planning. Distributed generation and quality: DG technologies, interface to utility system, power quality issues, interconnection standards. 

Course Outcome: At the end of the course the student will be able to:

· Define Power quality; evaluate power quality procedures and standards.
· Estimate voltage sag performance; explain principles of protection and Sources of transient over voltages.
