Power quality problems are one of the major causes of unscheduled downtime and equipment malfunction and damage. This paper presents a power quality management framework–based on continuous and iterative monitoring, analysis and corrective actions– that improves power quality performance. The framework can be applied to standalone or integrated energy / power management programs and will result in reduced unexpected downtime, extended equipment lifetime, and improved operating conditions.

Today design, deployment, and operation of modern substations are changing significantly. IEC 6185 leads the way as a notably improved global standard. Built on sound engineering principles and technology, it can be leveraged to provide valuable information in power quality analysis, compliance reporting applications, and other similar functions This paper explains why IEC 61850 as a worthy vehicle for providing power quality solutions and examines concepts for enhancing power quality aspects for improved functionality.

Maintenance costs account for almost as large a percentage of a facility’s operating budget as energy expenses. But usually this money is spent inefficiently with a reactive “wait till it breaks” approach. This paper shows how a proactive, predictive maintenance approach coupled with analytics can reduce a building’s maintenance and energy costs by up to 20%. The pros and cons of different approaches to maintenance are discussed, as well as practical guidance on deciding whether to develop a smart services plan in-house or outsource it.

Businesses are finding themselves drowning in a sea of power monitoring data. Today’s systems collect too much data — managers have trouble extracting the critical “nuggets” of useful information on power reliability. This paper discusses how taking a key performance indicator (KPI)–based approach to power monitoring allows personnel to focus more on strategic goals, translate data into actionable intelligence, and get more comprehensive insight into power reliability and “see the forest for the trees.”

The importance of reliable, high-quality electrical power continues to grow as society becomes ever more reliant on digital circuitry for everything from e-commerce to industrial process controllers to the onboard circuitry in toasters and televisions. With this shift to a digital society, business activities have become increasingly sensitive to disturbances in the power supply. Such disturbances include not only power outages (the complete absence of voltage, whether for a fraction of a second or several hours), but also power quality (PQ) phenomena (all other deviations from perfect power, including voltage sags, surges, transients, and harmonics). EPRI's Consortium for Electric Infrastructure to Support a Digital Society (CEIDS) contracted Primen to conduct a national survey of business establishments to quantify the cost of power disturbances to industrial and digital economy firms.
