Harmonics Mitigation

Date: Thursday, October 28th, 2004

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

Speaker: Greg Ferguson, Power Quality International

Topic: "Harmonics Mitigation"

Speaker Bio:
Mr. Ferguson joined the Ontario Hydro Electric Power Commission (Canada) as an engineer-in-training in 1957. In 1961, the Ontario Ministry of Education certified him as an Electrical Power System Protection and Control Engineer. In 1966, he graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic University (Canada) with a Bachelor of Technology Degree in Electrical Power.

In 1968, Mr. Ferguson incorporated Ferguson Engineering Services, Inc. FES provides a full range of engineering and technical field services to its domestic and international consulting, utility, industrial, commercial and manufacturing clients. The mitigation of load-generated power system harmonics, in large electro-chemical plants, has been a specialty.

In 1986, FES designed and applied the first electro-magnetic shunt filters, for the removal of non-linear electronic load-generated zero sequence harmonic currents, at an IBM Canada manufacturing facility. This was followed, in 1990, with the design and application of the first ultra-low zero sequence impedance harmonic mitigating transformers at an Imperial Oil Limited (Toronto) data center.

Mr. Ferguson incorporated Power Quality International, Inc. (USA), in 1993 as a manufacturer of ultra-high efficiency harmonic mitigating transformers and filters. PQI supports the application of these products by offering an engineered system study. Mr. Ferguson is President and CEO of Power Quality International, Inc.
