COURSE NAME:Electrical Power Analyzer


This course can be scheduled at your convenience, to request this course please click here

A power analyzer is used to measure electric power signals to determine the load's ability to function properly with that electric power. Without the proper electric power, an electrical device (or load) may malfunction, fail prematurely or not operate.  Power quality analyzer technology tracks several electrical parameters, which include AC voltage, AC current, and frequency. Electrical parameters include demand and peak demand.  Typically, power parameters are measured in watts (W), volt amperes (VA), and volt ampere reactive (VAR).

A power quality analyzer can also detect repetitive, cyclical disturbances both within and outside of a facility. These problems will be repetitive and cyclical in nature, definitely power-related, and line-to-line. Examples include voltage sags and surges, momentary interruptions by circuit breaker operations, and power interruptions.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the electrical power analyzer measurements
  2. Know instantaneous and recording data of power analyzer
  3. Know power quality is and why it is important to your facility.
  4. Understand power quality impacts your electrical system and equipment.
  5. Learn properly and safely measure power factor and power quality factors.
  6. Read various power analyzer  outputs, charts, graphs and reports.
  7. Troubleshoot and diagnose power analyzer problems.
  8. Use measuring instrument to address all power quality needs.
