Power Quality and Distribution

ELEC 3006

Course description

In this course, students focus on power quality infrastructure, primarily focusing on an AC powerline environment. A review of AC power basics leads students into a study of power quality, including the causes and effects of transient voltage surges. Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) are studied in defending against disruptive and damaging effects of surges. Upon completion, students should be able to properly implement efficient, cost effective SPD installations in a broad range of application environments.
