Power Quality Indices in Liberalized Markets Wiley | 2009 | ISBN: 0470033959 | 288 pages | PDF | 12 MB
Quality (PQ) indices are a powerful tool for quickly quantifying PQ
disturbances. They also serve as the basis for illustrating the negative
impact of electrical disturbances on components and for assessing
compliance with the required standards and recommendations within a
regulating framework. Within these pages lies a comprehensive
overview of both the traditional PQ indices in use today and new indices
likely to be used in the future.
Key features of this book include: a special focus on the metrics for quantifying PQ disturbances; a complete review of methods and indices for assessing disturbance responsibilities between customers and utilities; a survey on PQ objectives around the world, with highlights on the economic aspects of PQ disturbances.
you will find a thorough and well-balanced treatment on theoretical
concepts and practical applications, enhanced by examples and exercises
of PQ indices computation and use.
This is an important resource
for academics, students of power quality, reliability and electrical
power systems courses, and also for practicing engineers involved in
solving PQ problems in the new structures of liberalised energy markets.
