Application of power-factor-correction capacitors in modern industrial plants must consider harmonic components of voltage and current in the application. Whether the capacitors are installed as power-factor correction for individual motors, as a bank of capacitors, or as a tuned filter capacitor bank, harmonic distortion can prove disastrous to the(More)

The proper choice of instrumentation, measurement techniques and analytical tools is vital to the successful implementation of any industrial distribution system power quality study. Whether the desired result is the determination of harmonic distortion levels, a harmonic filter design, or transient waveform analysis, the proper choice of instrument,(More)

Power quality problems can result from unbalances in either the system load or the system components. These unbalances can result in overheating of system components, difficulty in controlling equipment, and circulating currents in the delta winding circuits of machines. Appropriate system voltage and current measurements combined with symmetrical component(More)

In futurist Alvin Toffler's book entitled PowerShift-Knowledge, Wealth, and Violence at the Edge of the 21st Century, he describes the global shift in economic power that will favor those who successfully manage the information in the "information age". Information management is a key to success in power systems asset management just as it is in all other(More)

A protective-relay application scheme is presented that uses devices widely used in pulp and paper mill power distribution systems. The effective use of summation overcurrent and directional overcurrent relays for multisource generator buses allows the power system protection engineer to achieve a good selective operation between source buses for both phase(More)

Generators in industrial plants and utility systems have been known to oscillate at subsynchronous frequencies when mechanically excited as a result of the occurrence of outside events. This form of oscillation has been known to produce severe disturbances when initiated by external system conditions and amplified mechanically by the in house generator(More)
