Modeling, Simulation and Analysis of Disturbances and Defects in Low Voltage Instalations

Open access


In this article we present some simulation models regarding the occurences that affect the quality of the electricity supplied to a low voltage consumer. We believe that these will offer to the researcher the opportunity to simulate power quality deviations in different energy system models, thus providing a picture regarding the way those deviations propagate and behave, creating a few basic patterns for studying the energy quality, also taking into consideration the limitations of the system in respect to the software used and the human factor performing the research.
