Value of detecting trends in power anomalies and surge events?
Electronic components are very sensitive to power anomalies and surge events can put the electronic equipment at a facility and, consequently, a facility, itself, at risk.
The ability to detect trends in the occurrence of abnormal power quality events through real time power quality measurements and date- and time-logged events could be very helpful to management in detecting and analyzing trends and, from that knowledge, addressing potential power quality problems before they occur. If you had access to this type of sleuthing, would you put it into place and use it? And whose responsibility would it be to determine how to respond?
