Voltage Sag and Short Interruptions
The project majorly deals with power shortages and interruptions. Shortages of power
and disruptions cause harm not only to humans but also to machines that are responsible for
producing the vital commodity. The study describes and defines the difference between Voltage
Sag and Short interruptions. Although they are the same, the two differ in many ways. While
Voltage Sag is the sudden reduction of voltage from the nominal range that can last just
milliseconds, short interruptions are a complete power outage that can last for about five
seconds. As such, the scope of the paper is the different types of interruptions and what needs to
be done when either is experienced.
The study approach is from the perspective of a person knowledgeable with voltage sag and
short interruptions. Some recommendations are made to curb the vice or menace when it occurs.
One of the ways is to employ the use of Ferro Resonant Transformer (Cebrian, Kagan, &
Milanović, 2018). The Ferro Resonant Transformer helps in regulating or reducing the effect of
short interruptions and voltage sags. The transformer acts as a circuit breaker so that the impact
of brief interruptions and voltage sag is not profoundly felt and does not damage any equipment.
The transformer has a primary winding through which the line enters, compensating and a
secondary winding; then it is neutralized at the neutralized winding.
The expected outcome of the study is pretty apparent. The result is that short interruptions
and voltage sag do not affect the distribution of power to the needed areas. The study delves into
the preventive measures and incorporation of physical theories that will, in the end, enhance the
productivity of power without worrying about short interruptions and voltage sag. The study is
crucial as it shows the different engineering methods.
In the group effects, our group are going to work all together to achieve the goals of this
project and will all work together in the listing components for each one in the matter of
introducing of the scope of the project, the study approach and lastly the expected out. However,
for this proposal, we put the ideas and contribute equally, and we haven’t discuss it on who is
going to take about the parts of the project as we are going to help each other in all the
components in the topic of voltage sag and short interruptions
