Course Overview

Utilities are required to provide power to their customers within a specific range of voltage. Voltages that are outside of that range may damage equipment or cause it to operate inefficiently. For example, voltage that is significantly lower than the desired range may cause lights to dim and motors to burn out. Voltage that is significantly higher may cause lights or appliances to fail prematurely. In an ideal ac power system, the voltage and frequency at every supply point would be constant and free of harmonics, and the power factor would be unity. In particular these parameters would be independent of the size and characteristics of consumers' load. In an ideal system, each load could be designed for optimum performance at the given supply voltage, rather than for merely adequate performance over an unpredictable range of voltage. Moreover, there could be no interference between different loads as a result of variations in the current taken by each one.
