Here’s a very nice short articles about the 10 power quality problems you electrical engineers all face! Give your impressions, which one is the worst to handle?


Before we move on to the top 10 power quality problems, let us first understand what power quality is, and why it has become the most vulnerable issue pertaining to power supply in the recent years.

Power Quality: It can be defined as a measure of voltage parameters that synchronize with the phase and allow electrical systems and equipment to function normally without causing any loss to their performance and durability. Simply put, power quality is a factor that determines how fit and safe the electricity is, from a consumer’s point of view.

Why it has become the most vulnerable issue?

Though, power quality has been an issue with electrical power since it was invented, it has become a very popular issue in the recent years. This is because, most of the data losses, computer reboots and malfunctioning of the electric devices are due to inferior power quality.

Following are the top 10 power quality problems ranked according to their impact on electrical systems and devices, with first one being the most vulnerable cause:

Choosing the right power supply 1

From the domestic user point of view, choosing an appropriate power supply is important. It is your insurance strategy against power surges and also prolongs the equipment of the device attached to. This post would illustrate on the types and draw a comparative analysis, helping you to make a reasonable choice.

The regulated power supply indicates to a power supply that can supply variable output voltages that are helpful for testing circuits. Nearly all devices that we use in circuits require a dc source.

The basic construct of the power supply involves a power supply and a voltage regulating device. The significant types of power supplies have been discussed below:

Telecom Power System the current status quo 1

When it comes to geographical distribution of power, the third world is defined by non-uniform availability of power. Owing to bad governance and lack of policy implementations, there is vast room for improvement in power systems of the third world. Massive outages are now considered habitual in countries like Pakistan, India and Bangladesh etc.

The load management system and the debt payment to IPPPs is disruptive, leading to a pandemonium state when it comes to availability of electricity. This has a massive toll on the industry particularly, the telecom industry. The power conundrum has affected diverse sectors including technical setups like telecommunications. They have taken a serious hit due to the power crisis.
