Technical Panel Session

Application of Custom Power Devices for Enhanced Power Quality

Sponsored by the IEEE Transmission & Distribution Committee

Tuesday, February 2, 1999, 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
New York Hilton, Sutton North Meeting Room


Numerous power providers have installed custom power devices for mitigating power quality problems. This panel session will focus on describing application considerations of custom power devices and results of custom power devices installed in the field. The panelists will discuss the economic factors that must be addressed before installing such devices. The session will also look at design issues that should be considered for reliable operation of custom power devices.
