Voltage Notching in IEEE Std. 519-2014

Category: PMI Products, Guardian, IEEE Standards, Eagle

Learn how PMI equipment can help record, measure and analyze voltage notching in order to maintain compliance with the IEEE Std. 519-2014.

 

This whitepaper covers the IEEE Std 519-2014 limits for voltage notching, how these limits are calculated, and how to use ProVision to make the notch measurements.

 

IEEE Std 519- 2014 was an upgrade from the previous IEEE 519 introduced in 1992 whose basic purpose was to develop guidelines for developing power systems that included linear and non-linear loads.

 

This document defines limits of acceptable power quality dealing with the harmonics component to the end user.

 

There are two distinct criteria associated with IEEE Std. 519.

 

Most of the standard discusses nonlinear voltages and currents as seen in the frequency domain, mostly in terms of harmonics and interharmonics.

 

A separate section is devoted to a waveform anomaly best analyzed in the time domain, specifically voltage notching.

 

This section is reviewed here, along with the method for making IEEE Std 519 voltage notching measurements in ProVision.
