Solar Energy - Part 1 of 3: An overview of PQ Issues
Renewable energy sources can include solar photovoltaic (PV), solar hot water, geothermal, wind and biomass. Of all of them, solar prices are dropping the quickest, so we are seeing this industry grow the quickest. This is most notably true in the residential and small commercial markets. Click here to view the document

Determining harmonic direction
Harmonics are caused by non-linear loads. Linear loads draw a linear current that follows the changing voltage of the AC waveform. Non-linear loads draw current pulses periodically, which creates distorted waveforms.

Methods of fault location in low voltage networks
There are multiple ways to find a cable fault in a low voltage network, but no one method works for all situations. It’s only by knowing the pros and cons of each method that you can determine the most effective one to use in any given scenario and pinpoint the fault in as little time as possible.

Measuring operational low voltage networks
Low voltage cable faults are often unstable, so they can only be located when the cable is conducting live voltage. Testing under these conditions is extremely hazardous, so separations filters, as well as constructional safety methods, should be employed at all times.

Low voltage network structures
Low voltage networks are a huge national investment, under daily pressure to give out power for hours at a time to a plethora of electrical appliances. It is therefore essential that their cables and transformers are tested often to prevent outage. To effectively test the components in low voltage networks, it’s important to know the different types of systems within them and how they are structured.

Intro to fault location in low voltage networks
Fault occurrences in medium voltage networks are usually covered by redundancy in the system which, with appropriate switching, usually ensures a relatively uninterrupted continuation of the supply for the customer. A lengthy wait until the fault can be corrected only results in the increased risk of a second failure in this area, creating a customer outage that cannot be restored by switching.
