Energy Efficiency Under Nonlinear Loads

Date: Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Location: SRP Information Services Building (ISB), 1600 N Priest Dr, Tempe, AZ 85281

Speakers: Jarrod Dobbs, Power Quality International ; Jeffrey Turner, Power Quality International

Topic: "Energy Efficiency Under Nonlinear Loads"

During this informative live interactive video presentation, members of the PQI team will join the presentation via video from their technology lab in Tampa, Florida, hosted in Phoenix by PQI's Director of Sales, Jarrod Dobbs.

The discussion will focus on the latest technology that in addition to conventional power and harmonic measurements, measures a transformer's Excitation Losses and Load Losses then calculates its Energy Efficiency, under linear or any nonlinear load condition. This electronic measuring instrument is based on the 'Voltage and Current Difference, Loss Measurement Method', which has been discussed in a number of recent IEEE papers.
