Abstract

For industries, where a high degree of power quality and reliability is critical, any voltage surge, sag and momentary outage on the supply lasting more than a few cycles could cause several equipment to malfunction.In particular for industrial customers, quality of power is as important as reliability of power. Premium power supply can be regarded as a provision of the electricity supply beyond the required standards with guaranteed performance levels. This paperpresents a questionnaire based survey with the objective of identifying premium power options that can be offered to industrial customers in Malaysia. The survey is also aimed at developing a knowledge base on industrial power quality concerns such as causes and effects of power quality disturbances and premium power options preferred by industrial customers. The results of the survey will provide a basis for utility in planning premium power services to be offered to industrial customers.
