1159 - Recommended Practice for Monitoring Electric Power Quality

This recommended practice provides users with a consistent set of terms and definitions for describing power quality phenomena. An understanding of how power quality phenomena affects the power system and end-use equipment is required in order to make monitoring useful. Proper measuring techniques are required to safely obtain useful, accurate data. Appropriate location of monitors, systematic studies, and interpretation of results will enhance the value of power quality monitoring. The purpose of this recommended practice is to assist users as well as equipment and software manufacturers and vendors by describing techniques for defining, measuring, quantifying, and interpreting electromagnetic phenomena on the power system.
