Abstract

Voltage dips are an important cause for electrical equipment malfunctions. To obtain a better picture of power quality performance and the possibilities for standardization and regulation, the Dutch government initiated a research project to quantify, standardize and classify voltage dips. This article presents a new method that has been developed for predicting voltage dip magnitude, duration and annual occurrence rates at arbitrary locations. This method enables an accurate prediction of voltage sag performance. Secondly, a transparent and consistent framework for a dip quality standard and a dip classification method is proposed. This framework introduces a dip costs table and a meaningful dip performance indicator. The dip costs, based on equipment sensitivity, economic costs and inconvenience experienced by the customer, is the principal guidance data for establishing a dip standard and a dip classification.
