Power-quality events are of increasing concern for the economy because todaypsilas equipment, particularly computers and automated manufacturing devices, is highly sensitive to such imperfections. With volatile energy rates and a need to control costs, regional agencies and utilities are interested in technologies to meter distribution use and manage utility information. Metering technologies and communications systems have advanced to enable the development of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) Systems. Power Quality is one area where the AMR system can be very valuable. This paper investigates the challenges in the development of distributed power-quality monitoring system.
