Power Quality School (Jun 18-22)

The complexity of the system that moves electric energy from the point of production to the point of consumption, combined with variations in weather, generation, demand and changing customer loads; provide many opportunities for the quality of the power supply to be compromised. This course provides students with the fundamental skills to facilitate, quantify, investigate, monitor and solve electrical system problems. Content is taught through a combination of presentations, exercises and unique hands-on labs. Building these skills allow utilities and their customers to save money in avoided equipment outages and damage, costly improper solutions, damage claims and lost production. CEU credits available.
