Preventing Power Quality Problems: Webcast Set for November 15

10/20/2005


As if electrical costs weren’t enough of a problem for plant managers, the quality of the current is a serious issue for many manufacturers. What can plant managers do to ensure power quality, whether from their own generation or from utilities, and what are some of the issues every plant engineer needs to know when confronting this issue?

On Nov. 15, at 1:00 pm (central standard time) CSE’s sister publication Plant Engineering will host a free webcast on this topic. Senior Editor Jack Smith leads a panel of notable power quality experts through a discussion of the solutions available for plant managers who are faced with the issues of power generation and electrical costs for their plants.

Topics of discussion include:

  • How Harsh are Harmonics? How do they manifest themselves? How to minimize them?

  • Tracking and eliminating transients and surges

  • Preventing voltage sags and swells

  • Return on investment

  • Power quality improvement strategies including detection and measurement, grounding and mitigation
