A blog about our work and our experiences inland and abroad.
Personal experiences of our Power Quality specialists.
Not only our team is growing, but also our working area and the issues and problems surrounding Power Quality. This keeps the work challenging for our Power Quality specialists. Every customer, every sector, every installation and every situation is different. The commissioning of a filter on a yacht is a completely different experience than performing a Power Quality measurement in a data center. Specialist knowledge is an absolute necessity for both activities, but the background, actions and environment are completely different. Our Power Quality specialists share their experiences in this blog.
