Separating Sag Events from Data Recorded

Separating Sag Events from Data Recorded One of the more powerful features of PQSCADA Sapphire is its wide range of pre-programmed power quality events, plus an extensive selection of existing graphs designed to help visualize your power quality environment. One of the key questions we receive is how do I extract my sags from all the steady state data? How easy is it to do? PQSCADA Sapphire has two easy ways to retrieve sag [...]

Using IEEE 1668 for Power Quality Study

Using IEEE 1668 for Power Quality Study Visualization of data allows one to glance quickly at a graph, chart, or display and understand the results based on understood criteria. For years power quality studies and audits have relied on CBEMA curves, SEMI F47 curves and others to identify equipment and facilities susceptibility to sags. In 2017 IEEE finalized the 1668 standard Recommended Practice for Voltage Sag and Short Interruption Ride-Through Testing for End-Use Electrical Equipment [...]

Knowing IEC 61000-4-30 Class A

Knowing IEC 61000-4-30 Class A Power quality refers to a set of electrical boundaries defined by various documented rules designed to allow electrical equipment to function in its intended manner without significant loss of performance or life expectancy, this includes the steady and stable supply of electricity delivered by the grid. In order to achieve this aim it is necessary to constantly and vigilantly monitor the power conditions within an electrical network. There [...]

How PQ Sapphire Uses Visualization to Simplify Data Analysis

How PQ Sapphire Uses Visualization to Simplify Data Analysis When someone is responsible for analyzing and presenting data, visualization can make the difference between comprehension and lack of understanding. Having graphs, charts, models and easy to read tables in a presentation communicates the data in a clear and concise manner. When looking at power quality analysis software, visualization is also extremely important. Sapphire has a large amount of visual tools to help not only understand [...]

Phasor Measurement Unit

Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) technique In their most organic form, basic Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) in the smart grid are the sensing devices strategically placed in order to capture power system phasors using a common time source for synchronization. The process is usually done over wide geographical areas, through global positioning system enabled time-stamping. The data obtained from the device form the basis of all monitoring and control actions for wide-area measurement systems. The resulting measurement is [...]
