Handbook of Power Quality examines a full scope of PQ disturbances, including background theory and guidelines on measurement procedures and problem solving. Electrical engineers, consultants and even students who want to learn and gain knowledge on power quality issues and causes will find this book easy to read and understand, as it is well-written and organized. Also, Handbook of Power Quality is a good resource in that it contains many contemporary references for further in-depth study.

Handbook of Power Quality uses the viewpoint of both power suppliers and electricity users, with contributions from experts in all aspects of power quality, supplying an essential balance between the practical and scientific information on the following:

  • Characteristics of voltage, including sags or dips, fluctuations and flicker
  • Frequency variations
  • Monitoring and cost of poor power quality
  • Relationship of PQ with power systems, distributed generation and the electricity market
  • Continuity and reliability of electricity supply, its structure, appliances and equipment
  • Appropriate use of energy

An accompanying website hosts case studies for every chapter, demonstrating power quality practice; how problems are identified, analyzed and resolved. In addition, the website includes extensive appendices listing the present standards, mathematical formulas and principles of electrical circuits that are critical for the optimization of solutions.

Handbook of Power Quality is a comprehensive book, which is geared toward electrical distribution systems at the utility level and discusses power quality theories. It explains PQ methodology with a hands-on approach that makes it essential for all practicing power systems engineers and researchers. It simultaneously acts as a reference for electrical engineers and technical managers who meet with power quality issues and would like to further their knowledge in this area.
