CET746 Power Quality II

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



The course aims to establish and apply harmonic limits to control the voltage and current harmonics to meet IEEE 519 voltage and current distortion limits. The course is to introduce the new concept of power quality and quantify the power quality disturbances that fall within the broader umbrella of electromagnetic phenomena. It aims to provide a strong foundation for a better understanding of the fundamentals behind each power quality problem.

This course is part of:

- Graduate Certificate in Power Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Power Engineering

At the end of the course, learners  are able to:

1. understand the fundamental concepts and techniques required to control the voltage and current distortion limits;

2. apply IEEE 519 Standard to control harmonics within the current distortion limits in industry facility;

3. understand the basics of power quality, typical effects on power quality and standards and;

4. apply different techniques to mitigate the power quality effects.
