Power Quality Principles

The Fundamental Principles of Power Quality is presented as a 2-day end-user course for delegates with a basic knowledge of electrical systems and covers standards in power quality, regional regulatory practices, rights of users and obligations of utilities, and a legal perspective to protecting users of electrical energy.

The course will also include the fundamental principles of power quality in terms of voltage and current waveform quality, voltage waveform events and an introduction to reporting of power quality measured against the NRS048 code and international standards.

This course has a practical component where afternoons will be spent in demonstration and operation of laboratory Power Quality equipment.



The expert course, the Application of Power Quality Principles is aimed at delegates with electrical, mechanical or electro-mechanical backgrounds and a minimum of 3 years of field experience or other suitably qualified candidates with 5 years of experience.

The course commences with a classroom-based tuition of 4 days, which will include tutorials, data analysis and reporting.

Over the 9-12 months of the expert course, delegates will be required to perform a Power Quality Assessment at their candidate site, and write and present a Power Quality Assessment report for the site. Monthly online webinars will be held during which delegates will report progress; mentoring and feedback will be provided by facilitators. A final written exam with the quality assured candidate plant report will be used to test candidate's proficiency.
