What is a power quality problem?

Power quality problems come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They cost you any where from a couple hundred dollars to upwards of a million dollars depending on the size and type of problem you have. Commonly power problems are defined as spikes, surges, sags, brownouts, outages, and harmonics. In the business world, they are defined as burnt-out motors, erroneous motion of robotics, corrupt data on hard drives, unnecessary downtime, and increased maintenance costs. There are simple, cost-effective ways to deal with these problems, which this seminar is designed to show you.
