Fluke has a few interesting CD/DVD on power quality. Check out their website, poke around. You may have to be an 'instructor' to qualify for 'free copies'.

If you have a problem with that, send me a PM or an email.

Yeah, I found that on their website and ordered their free disk. I also found a class done by AVO out of Texas. It's a 2.5 day class. Anyone took that course?

Nearly all of the well-known Switchgear and MCC Manufacturers have Power Quality plus Harmonic Distortion Instructional Documents available on-line...
and for FREE!!! smile thumbs

Check out websites for:

Siemens,
Square D,
Eaton,
Allen-Bradley,
Bussman,
etc.

Also check out some of the Transformer Manufacturers for descriptions of "Triple-N" Harmonics and K-Ratings for Transformers.
