Power quality: Core criterion

Mukesh Tolani, Director, Trutech Products

“T&M equipment are used to conduct various checks at every stage of manufacturing, further culminating into stringent final product testing”

Mukesh Tolani, Director, Trutech Products discusses how T&M equipment play a very important role in every single stage of business related to power sector for proper maintenance and effective prevention of break-downs.

Uninterrupted power is the fundamental right to every citizen
The positive transformation of Indian power sector was long due. Uninterrupted power is now almost a fundamental right to every citizen, than a privilege. The present government has been taking extraordinary steps towards complete electrification of the country. Growth in power sector not only facilitates infrastructure growth, but also, by itself, creates new demands and becomes a growth driver.

For sustainability and growth
Electrification is the core criterion and a prerequisite, for sustainability and growth in each and every sector across India. I cannot think of a single sector which is not a beneficiary of continuous and uninterrupted power supply. As the rural economy starts picking up in different segments and sectors, various other segments become an indirect beneficiary of the same through the consumption cycle.

The ‘downtime’ of power sector
Due to the reduced thrust, the power sector, on a whole, had to go through a tough time because many manufacturers had increased their production capacity as they were looking forward to consistent focus and increase in spending by the government. However, things have started looking up now.

Contribution of measuring instruments to a sustainable society
It is necessary for a growth-oriented sector to be supported by good quality and latest technological measuring instruments. These instruments find their use in different stages, ranging from manufacturing stage to final product testing and further to monitoring at the site of installations. Superior product quality, proper maintenance and effective prevention of break-downs cannot take place without adequate measuring instruments.

Installing, improving efficiency and extending the life of power plant assets
Test and measurement equipment have a very important role to play in every single stage of business related to power sector. In the manufacturing of power equipment, it starts right from ascertaining the raw-material quality. In further processing, the T&M equipment are used to conduct various checks at every stage of manufacturing, further culminating into stringent final product testing.

Measuring electrical power quality
It is highly desirable that the insulation strength of an equipment be as high as possible. When it comes to testing final power output, the important parameters that signify power quality are the content of harmonics or high frequency noise present in the same. The lower the harmonic contents and HF noise, the cleaner is the output sinusoidal waveform.

The expansion
With continuous technological advances happening across the globe, the measuring equipment will continue to find extensive usage, quite linearly proportional to the growth happening in the power sector.
