Power quality is important for business

- The most apparent signs of power quality problems are equipment malfunctions or blown fuses.
- Increasing reliance on sensitive electronic equipment makes power quality problems more visible and troublesome for business.
- Electronic equipment must be properly wired and grounded.
- It also must be compatible with the premises' wiring system and other connected equipment.
