Many electronic devices and automation systems in industrial production plants are sensitive to voltage variations and dips in the power supply that are often caused by the unexpected connection of energy sources, such as renewable energy and large energy consumers. The production systems themselves can also cause faults and feed them back into the distribution system. The risk? Plant shutdowns and production loss. The answer? Power quality. Power quality needs to be continuously measured and analyzed so that unexpected risks can be detected early on.
Using information from all connected power quality devices and reporting functions is essential for detecting and responding to system and power quality problems and service disruptions. Reliable data analysis and effective information generation are top priorities in this context.
