Poor Power Quality – Causes & Solutions for Voltage Variation

Poor power quality – Causes and solutions for voltage variation

The growth of renewable energy means that society is now more sustainable. However, the natural fluctuation in wind and solar energy can lead to voltage dips and swells. Voltage variation can also arise due to a voltage surge from a lightning strike or due to a voltage drop due to a machine starting in a factory. This video explains the sources of voltage variation and its effects, such as flickering lights and equipment failures – leading to production losses. It also explains how ABB’s technology enables the connection of renewables to the grid and protects against voltage variations from lightning or switching.
