Technical Panel Session

Custom Power Applications for Power Quality Improvement

IEEE PES Transmission and Distribution Conference and Exposition

April 14, 1999, 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana


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.
