This book is a compilation of some selected articles devoted to the analysis and control
of vibrations. Vibrations are a phenomenon found in many engineering systems; their
harmful effects are translated into low performance, noise, energy misspend,
discomfort and system breakdown, among others. These are the reasons why, in the
last years, researchers have made great efforts in seeking ways to eliminate them
totally or partially.
On the Reliability of Real Measurement Data for Assessing Power Quality Disturbances
Alexandre Brandao Nassif
Hydro One Inc.,Toronto, ON, Canada
Power quality assessment is a power engineering field that is first and foremost driven by real data measurements. All the power quality assessment applications rely on results from real data processing.
The name of this book is
but the title could very well be
Quality Do-It-Yourself Book
. When I set out to write this book, I wanted it to be
user friendly, easy to understand, and easy to apply in solving electrical power system
problems that engineers and technicians confront on a daily basis. As an electrical
engineer dealing with power system quality concerns, many of the books I consulted
lacked direct and precise information and required a very thorough search to find
what I needed.
