Power Quality



Achieve power quality with our preventative maintenance solutions.

What is Power Quality?

As defined by the IEEE Std 1100-1999, IEEE Recommended Practice for Power and Grounding Electronic Equipment, power quality is the “the concept of powering and grounding electronic equipment in a manner that is suitable to the operation of the equipment and compatible with the premise wiring system and other connected equipment”. In other words, power quality is the electrical network’s ability to supply a clean and stable power supply. It is a measure of an ideal power supply system.

Consequences of Poor Power Quality

Power quality problems have many names and descriptions such as surges, spikes, transients, blackouts, and noise. Power quality problems can adversely impact a company’s bottom line. Problems such as voltage sags and surges are estimated to cost businesses about $1.2 billion annually in lost productivity in Canada. Power quality problems can also cause loss of data and malfunction of computerized equipment. Without preventative maintenance, an electrical distribution system itself can waste thousands of dollars in electric utility cost.

Systems Integration

With the advancement of technology, connecting various building systems through a common interface can provide real-time information and diagnostic tools to keep your facility performing at peak efficiency. By integrating systems in your building, you can obtain system capabilities that a single system cannot do by itself. With an integrated system, you can continuously monitor your building’s systems to identify opportunities for system optimization and operate your building at peak efficiency by engaging only what systems are necessary at any given time. Houle offers the ability to combine many systems that previously required its own computer or interface into one easy to use access point, whether it be on an on-site computer, a web enabled device, or both. We can integrate heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, security systems including CCTV cameras, audio visual systems, lighting, energy monitoring, electrical power monitoring, UPS back up battery power monitoring, emergency generators, and other building systems. At any time, you can know who, what, where, when, and how an event of any kind took place in your building from anywhere in the world.
