Highly reliable electrical power systems are required to serve critical Information Systems (IS) sites. This course provides an overview of power quality problems, with an emphasis on Information Technology (IT) equipment.

Modern technology's sensitive components present new challenges for plant engineers who design, specify, install, or maintain plants and equipment. SCR and diode rectifiers in computers, copiers, switched mode power supplies, solid-state lighting ballasts, and power conversion sections of adjustable frequency drives increase the need for power systems engineers to thoroughly address harmonic distortion and its role in overall power quality.
