What is power quality?
 
 
This refers to the compatibility between the power from an electric supply and the electrical load/component that is connected to it, as well as the load’s ability to consume the energy it receives.  The efficiency of electrical equipment can be affected by various power quality issues, such as poor power factor, voltage instability and imbalance, and the presence of electrical harmonics. This could result in: 

                                                                                                                         

  An increase in energy usage and costs                An increase in maintenance costs                     Equipment malfunction and failure        

       





Identify your power quality status
 
It is critical to assess, protect and improve your power quality, and should be an integral part of your energy management strategy. There are many choices in terms of equipment and manufacturers, depending on your facility needs.  The most expensive solution, is however, not always the right solution to the problem. Both power problems and your business’ energy use needs will be identified and addressed by your energy advisor, ensuring the most accurate assessment.
