Power quality site surveys are electrical power system investigations that attempt to locate and solve power quality problems affecting electrical and electronic equipment. Site surveys combine state-of-the-art diagnostic instrumentation with the intuitive nature of the individuals who endeavor to utilize them. Successfully performing a power site survey requires the management of issues and resources on many levels. Some of the minutiae to consider are: (1) coordinating the involved parties; (2) procuring and safely utilizing necessary test equipment; (3) implementing proper diagnostic techniques to the perceived problem; (4) suitable interpretation of the results; and (5) providing cost-effective recommendations to eliminate or mitigate the cause of the disturbance. A problem-solving checklist and its components can be introduced as a slide for participants who may have a concern with the uniformity of their troubleshooting techniques. This paper reviews these and other aspects of a power site survey based upon the recent changes to the recommended practices set forth by Chapter 6 of IEEE Std. 1100 (Recommended Practice for Power and Grounding Electronic Equipment-Emerald Book)
