Abstract

To improve the quality of learning at the University of Pamulang, especially in the Department of Electrical Engineering, experiences are provided to the practice of power quality research using the Power Quality Analyzer tool. With this practice, it is expected that students can gain a deeper understanding of power quality problems. This paper discusses practical examples of research conducted regarding power quality problems due to harmonic distortions. The quality of power in an electric power system is affected by the parameters of power losses. The quality of power in Pamulang University Building A has not been measured. This research was conducted to measure the harmonic voltage and harmonic load current of Pamulang University Building A using Power Quality Analyzer Metrel Power Plus MI 2792. The power quality is still in the healthy category because the total burden of electricity usage plus power losses is still far below the rating. It was found that the results are still in the healthy category because a total load of electricity usage plus power losses in Pamulang University is still far below the rating. Overall, the hands-on experience of the student to conduct a practical assessment of the power quality investigation can be a solution to improve their capacity building as well as preparing their competency.
