Power quality problems are one of the major causes of unscheduled downtime and equipment malfunction and damage. This paper presents a power quality management framework–based on continuous and iterative monitoring, analysis and corrective actions – that improves power quality performance. The framework can be applied to standalone or integrated energy / power management programs and will result in reduced unexpected downtime, extended equipment lifetime, and improved operating conditions.
