Summary: In Hawaii, the high cost of energy combined with federal and state subsidies for photovoltaic installation has led to increasing penetration of distributed, intermittent generation in the grid. However, the impact of this change on power quality is not well understood. The Open Power Quality project pursues the design of low-cost hardware and software, released under an open source license, to support “crowd sourced” power quality data.
