Abstract:  FREE On-Demand Webinar: As one of the "pillar tests" in a condition assessment of a substation asset (transformer, breaker, bushings, etc.), does a power factor test adequately live up to its cornerstone status?

This webinar presented by Jill Duplessis of OMICRON, explores why a power factor measurement can be misinforming.  Learn about a simple, practical solution through which more value can be extracted from a power factor measurement.

Key topics of this webinar include:

  • Description of a Power Factor Test
  • Strengths & Deficiencies of a Power Factor Measurement
  • Analysis Strategies of a Power Factor Measurement
  • Why following the rules may not be good enough
  • Modeling an Insulation System and how a dielectric problem may manifest in the model
  • Variable Frequency Power Factor and its Analysis
  • Differentiating Variable Frequency Power Factor from DFR technologies
