Chicago Chapter 2017-2018

About the Topic

The IEEE Recommended Practice and Requirements for Harmonic Control in Electric Power Systems (previously, IEEE 519-1992) was updated to IEEE 519-2014 in an effort to simplify the document and clarify several topics. This includes but is not limited to changes in the definition of the PCC (point of common coupling) as well as changes to how harmonics are measured and related calculations. The presentation will focus on the major differences between the versions as well as a discussion regarding harmonic mitigation with variable frequency drives.

About the Speaker

Thomas Eitenmiller has over 20 years of experience in the engineering, manufacturing, application, commissioning, and sales of variable speed drives. He is currently focused on business development and support of the municipal water market for Siemens Industry, Inc. as it relates to medium voltage variable speed drives.
