Abstract

Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) research and testing, conducted over many years, has indicated that variations in electric power quality can negatively impact end-use equipment. Ths research and testing has helped to form the theory that the least costly and most effective measure for malung end-use equipment more robust to power quality fluctuations is to embed effective mitigation solutions into the equipment itself. This work is best accomplished by the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) themselves. Embedded solutions are equipment modifications that OEMs could make to substantially decrease the sensitivity of their product to various power quality phenomena (i.e., voltage sags). Recent voltage-sag tests perfor
