Course Detail

EE6508 Power Quality
The objective of this course is to instill participating individuals with an in-depth knowledge in power
quality. With reliability and availability largely guaranteed, power quality is becoming the primary
concern in electric power distribution systems. This module introduces the new concept of power
quality and quantifies the power quality disturbances that fall within the wider umbrella of
electromagnetic phenomena. It aims to provide a strong foundation for a better understanding of the
fundamentals behind each power quality problem in addition to reaching for innovative and
economical solutions.

Graduates of this module shall possess the necessary skills to handle power quality related problems.
This involves identifying the cause or source of the problem and assessing the severity of each
problem with respect to the vulnerability of the affected devices. Computer modelling and simulations
for examining the system responses or to evaluate the effectiveness of various solutions are essential
skills imparted to the participants. As technology advances and equipment become more sensitive,
new innovative ideas and approaches are needed to arrive at the most economical solutions. Graduates
expected to be conversant with power quality terminologies, and ready to tackle power quality related
- Concept of Power Quality
- Voltage Fluctuations and Variations
- Transient Overvoltages
- Harmonic
- Distortions
Who Should Attend
This course is aimed for graduate participants and/or practicing engineers working in electric power
distribution related fields. Some knowledge of fundamentals of power systems and engineering
mathematics is expected.
