Power Quality (PQ) is becoming increasingly important to
electricity consumers at all levels of usage [1-3]. A
dramatic increase in the number of mains powered but
electronically controlled equipment (computers, office
equipment, electronic ballasts, variable speed drive, and
consumer electronics) took place in the last two decades
leading to a greater dependency on radio,
telecommunication and electronic products. The usage of
these products is possible only if the necessary criteria of
PQ are met. This study introduces Power Quality and in
general, provides an overview of the standards that
establish noise limits, evaluates various mitigation
techniques and looks at the challenges that need to be.
