Supplying reliable electric power for critical systems is an essential part of modern industrial installations. Very often the supply received from a distribution network has quality issues such as voltage sags and swells, transients, harmonics, and interruptions. While it is impossible to guarantee 100% availability of power at all points in any system, vulnerable sections can be provided with alternative emergency power supply to ensure more reliable power availability, thereby avoiding the problems caused by power interruption.
An introduction to the measures against power interruptions, voltage variations, transients and harmonics will be discussed in this course.
