Courtesy: EmersonEmerson Network Power's ASCO power quality analytics is designed for critical power management system to increase on-site power reliability and facilitates regulatory compliance. Similar to electrocardiogram monitoring equipment for the heart, ASCO enables a facility to compare current operating parameters against manufacturer's baseline to identify any anomalies or degradation that could cause inefficient operation or even failure. This tool helps diagnose problems by reviewing stored, continuously recorded waveforms, without waiting for the event to recur. High-speed waveform recording of power quality identifies eight anomalies, such as power outages, transient harmonics, sags, and swells. The wave is monitored cycle by cycle in milliseconds.
