Course Description

This course provides an in-depth analysis of the fundamental issues in the PQ discipline considering related standards, practical case studies.

  1. Understanding the fundamental concepts of power quality (PQ) problems (types, characteristics, and causes) and related standards.
  2. Understanding different stages and procedures required to conduct and implement on-site PQ scurvies.
  3. Knowledge of different PQ monitoring equipment and techniques and capability of selecting appropriate equipment for monitoring a given phenomenon.
  4. Identification of PQ problems mitigation equipment and techniques as well as study of the effect of earthing system quality of PQ-state and study of power quality disturbances related to inadequate earthing systems.
  5. Understanding of requirements, objectives, planning, and properties of earthing systems and study of related standards.
  6. Understanding various issues related to earth electrode subsystems.
  7. Understanding techniques for various earth/earthing systems resistance measurements and analysis of various affecting parameters.
  8. Design of earthing systems for various applications considering various reasonable configurations.
  9. Troubleshooting of various earthing systems caused problems.
