Title Modernizing Power Electronics lab with Power Quality Studies
Principal InvestigatorDr.M.Arutchelvi
Duration1 year (May 2012 - May 2013)

New experimental setups have been created in the power electronics lab to study the effect of non-linear loads connected to the grid. Three phase power quality analyzer has been procured under this project among other equipments. Some of the important additions of new experiments are listed as below 1. Measurement of power under non-sinusoidal conditions 2. Measurement of THD for voltage/current 3. Measurement of Unbalance in Voltage/Current 4. Study of power quality issues in AC and DC Drives 5. Energy Saving through power quality improvement
