Measuring network quality - Basic course
Learn to interpret signals accurately and avoid costly mistakes. This course is a first step towards a full understanding of measuring and analysing network performance. It teaches basic principles of energy measurement and network quality monitoring.
We can also set up courses for your company.
Whether you need to dimension networks and transformers or install filters and equalizers, it is essential you make good decisions. And this depends on taking correct measurements. Through both theory and practical exercises this one-day course will provide you with invaluable knowledge and help you select the best tools for the job, set them up safely, and monitor real-time data.
Good insight into the basic theory behind the parameters of an installation, knowledge about safe practices when working with voltage systems, and an understanding of the definitions in the Norwegian directive on Quality of Supply are necessary prerequisites to measuring network quality.
The course offers a basic understanding of measuring and analysing network quality. A good basic understanding is essential in order to recognise signals indicating incorrect connections and/or settings. Correct interpretation of signals can prevent costly mistakes.
