About the talk:
Santa Clara Valley Water District installed an advanced power quality monitoring system after the 1999 CA rolling outages and western grid energy crisis. The system gathers power and energy data from the water utility’s various treatment plants and pumping stations. Utility staff use the power monitoring system to verify utility bills, respond and diagnose power interruptions, and plan for capacity upgrades and designs. The system has maintained historical data to compare load levels, voltage levels, power factors, and harmonic quality as the district has made electrical improvements. SCVWD and APT work together to maintain the overall system’s 90 plus power quality monitoring devices and to plan improvements and upgrades.

See you there!
