Electrical Service Tips: Causes and Impacts of Power System Disturbances August 26, 2015

Electrical Service Tips: Causes and Impacts of Power System Disturbances , Branford, Connecticut

For residential and commercial electrical service, experience and certification are two non-negotiable factors when hiring an electrical contractor. In the greater Branford, CT area, NJF Electrical Services only staffs certified electricians, and they've been serving the local community for over 30 years.

One of the most common reasons to hire an electrician is a power system disturbance. Before hiring a professional, it is important to understand the causes and impacts of power system disturbances.

  • Voltage Dips: Caused by local and remote faults, inductive loading, or sudden large electrical loads, voltage dips can result in the resetting of control systems, tripping of sensitive equipment, or motor tripping.
  • Voltage Surges: This is caused by phase faults, the switch-off of large electrical loads, or capacitor switching. The impact is three-fold: it can result in the tripping of sensitive equipment, damage insulation and windings, and damage power supplies for electronic equipment.
  • Power Frequency Variation: A loss of generation or extreme loading conditions can cause a power frequency variation. This manifests in motors running slower and the detuning of harmonic filters.
  • Voltage Fluctuation: AC motor drives, inter-harmonic current components, or welding and arc furnaces cause a voltage fluctuation. They result in flickers in fluorescent or incandescent lamps.
