Aspects of the modern power system, such as the adoption of energy-efficient LED lighting, variable-frequency drives used in industrial applications, and inverters used in distributed generation and electric vehicle charging, have led to an increase in undesirable harmonic distortion. Harmonics have a negative impact on neighboring loads and generation sources, resulting in excess heat, efficiency loss, system capacity reduction, mechanical oscillations of motors and generators, light flickering, and other issues.
Maximizing system efficiency and performance requires the identification and correction of harmonic distortion sources. Compliance with IEEE 519-2014—Recommended Practice and Requirements for Harmonic Control in Electric Power Systems can help achieve this goal.
This recorded webinar will highlight two solutions for monitoring harmonics and confirming IEEE 519 compliance: SEL-5705 Synchrowave Reports, a new browser-based meter reporting tool, and the SEL Real-Time Automation Controller (RTAC). Both solutions use the SEL-735 Power Quality and Revenue Meter as their monitoring device.
