Abstract : Transients in power systems are created by nature, man, and normal operations. They are likely to exist for a long time to come. With increased use of complex electronic equipments incorporating high speed, low operating voltage, frequency sensitive solid state components, the Naval installations are experiencing increased equipment malfunctions, erroneous operations, and failures. An acute need has arisen to closely scrutinize the transient suscep tibility of these electronic equipments to institute corrective action. To enable this examination, a power transient simulator is being developed. With this transient simulator, it will be possible to correlate specific type transients to particular equipment malfunctions, establish quantitative tolerance figures of acceptable power parameter fluctuations for complex electronic equipments and systems, establish the degree of excellency in power quality required of the uninterruptible power supply systems, furnish design information to enable designs of less transient sensitive electronic equipments, and enable corrective measures to be taken in equipments now experiencing operational diffuculties.
