What is Power Quality and Safety Tips to Practise

What our customers say

For any other goods and services, we always opt for well-established and quality outputs. We should never compromise things in exchange for convenience and affordability since they can backfire in a way we could never imagine.

Are you always in doubt if you are getting the right amount of power inside your residential and commercial buildings? With all of the issues we are facing right now, a safe and liveable environment should be our number one priority. 

However, this is not the case when you are not getting the right power quality for your electrical needs. Voltage changes are electrical hazards that damage appliances and circuit connections. And they can cause an explosion, shock, fire or death if they always happen and ignored. 

So, Inner West Electricians is here to guide you and provide safety tips you can practise to achieve a sustainable power quality inside your place. 

What is Power Quality?

Power quality is the required electricity requirement the power grids should distribute for household and commercial use. Energy suppliers are responsible for safe and efficient transmission. But once the electricity enters your premises, it is also your responsibility to maintain its right condition. 

Good power quality is characterised by the following:

  • Steady supply voltage that runs to its required range
  • Stable alternating current frequency close to the rated value
  • Smooth voltage curve waveform (forms a sine wave)
  • Low harmonic content
  • Uninterrupted continuity of service

Safety Tips to Practise 

It is essential to obtain the right power quality to avoid electrical issues from happening. Thus, here are some safety tips for you to follow:

Learn How Electrical Components Work

First of all, you can avoid electrical dangers by educating yourself about some electrical components and their functions. You can start by checking your appliances’ voltage requirement. Australian homes and offices run on 230V outlets. So you need to examine your devices if they are compatible with the required voltage — specifically imported electrical equipment since they sometimes run on a different power. 

Moreover, check the wattage of your lightbulbs before installing one to avoid an explosion. And lastly, familiarise yourself with switchboard components — especially the location of the main switch so you can turn it off in case of electrical emergencies.  

Doing these things will prevent you from ruining your circuit connection and maintain the power quality inside your property. 

Avoid Electrical Overloading

Electrical overloading happens when your connection exceeds its maximum load capacity. It makes the circuit breakers to trip more often — causing electrical damages. And therefore, minimising the power quality of your electrical system. 

Here are some tips to avoid overloading your circuits:

Spot Wire Faults and Short Circuits

Wire faults and short circuits decrease the power quality of the system since the wires are not in their 100% performance. Their conductivity is lower than usual, and they are fire-risks at this point.  

Through time, electrical wires undergo wear and tear, and sometimes there is nothing we can do about it. And since they are mounted and installed in walls, floorings and ceilings, it is hard to spot their current condition. However, you can look for these signs so you can call for an emergency electrician immediately:

  • Scorch marks on outlets and switches
  • Dimming and flickering lights
  • Tripping of circuit breakers or blowing of fuses
  • Burning smells
  • Buzzing sounds near electrical components
  • Malfunction of appliances, especially those with microprocessors
