Practical evaluation of voltage unbalance at a distribution transformer based on 50 Hz negative sequence active power
The paper investigates the measurement and propagation of voltage unbalance at a distribution transformer. The relations between unbalance factors in voltage and current with the direction of negative sequence fundamental ...
A practical evaluation of harmonic emission assessment
This paper reports an evaluation of harmonic emission assessment. The results obtained by the Harmonic Vector Method are correlated to the behavior of harmonic active power by means of synchronized measurements in a ...
On the development of a power quality benchmarking model
The development of a Power Quality (PQ) Benchmarking model is presented. Practical results are discussed to motivate the need of adding value to recorded PQ data by means of benchmarking PQ performance. The importance, ...
On the reporting of power quality
The reporting of power quality (PQ) requires consideration as different users of information on Quality of Supply (QoS) have different needs. Reporting on the compliancy of voltage regulation in terms of a PQ standard can ...
Towards PQ regulation in Southern Africa
This paper discuss the regulation of Power Quality (PQ) in Southern Africa from a user perspective
The application of modern technology in power quality management
Little business integration of power quality management (PQM) is forthcoming amongst electrical utilities all over Southern Africa. Restricted access to proper information is the main reason. A integration of tools, ...
Where is the power of the IEEE 1459-2010
The integration of the IEEE 1459-2010 power definitions with the IEC 61000-4-30 PQ standard is investigated. A Class A PQ instrument, which record network coherent data with an absolute time uncertainty of less than 100 ...
Improved event based method for harmonic impedance assessment
The quantification of harmonic emission requires an accurate model of the network harmonic impedances. A number of techniques have been proposed for the assessment of the network harmonic impedances to be practical and ...
Attenuation effect with non-linear loads for small stand-alone grids
This paper presents the effect of non-linear loads on the overall voltage quality in small powered stand-alone (islanded) systems. The iterative effect between current and voltage distortion is related to the source's ...
On the assessment of harmonic emission in distribution networks: opportunity for the prevailing harmonic phase angle
Harmonic emission assessment for Grid Code compliance of Renewable Power Plants (RPP) has to be fair and pragmatic. The CIGRE C4.109 method lacks the ability to determine which harmonic currents have a positive or negative ...
