Distortion, harmonics and variations in voltage can cause a variety of problems in electrical lines, resulting in wasted power, accelerated deterioration of equipment, and high levels of electromagnetic interference, causing an electrical system to become unstable and eventually breakdown.
A power event or disturbance may involve frequency, current or voltage, and can occur in consumer loads, consumer power systems, or in the utility department.
Power quality test equipment is utilized to indicate of how efficiently a system is working, and helps to maintain the reliability and efficiency of the overall electrical system.
