PROTECT YOUR ASSETS!
Does any of the below Resembles Your Building?
Breakers intermittently trips
Compressor winding failures
Computer’s Blue Screen of Death
Equipment (VFD) Stops for no reason
Hot Electrical Rooms
Hot Electrical Transformers
Large Copier failures, Copier company blames bad power
Modernized Elevator Failures
Motors (VFD) are HOT and its bearings fail
Premature Ballast Failure
Premature LED Failure
VFD intermittent alarms/failures
If any of the above applies; Sign Up, Attend then Understand.
Before we point our fingers at the utility, let's first consider what our energy efficient and technology improvements have to do with the Premature Failure of Fluorescent & LED Lights, Elevator Entrapments, HOT Electrical Rooms and Noisy Transformers, VFD Trips/Failures to Tripping Electrical Breakers, etc (see list above).
We have forever changed the way we use electricity in our buildings and homes. We even have changed the way electricity is being brought (PV and Renewables) to our buildings and homes.
Come hear our speakers expose why the Quality of our Power WILL NEVER BE THE SAME and how we can Prepare, Repair and Protect our Facilities against those “Silent PQ Killers”.
A power quality problem is manifested by the interruption or distortion of the ideal 60-hertz sine wave. These power quality problems can be grouped into the following categories:
Sag or Undervoltage
Swell or Overvoltage
Transient, Impulse, or Spike
With the proper application of power conditioning equipment and proper wiring and grounding, most of these power quality problems can be eliminated.
"100% of the buildings I have consulted have power quality issues, especially harmonics. PQ problems occur on those properties that do not have installed equipment that is robust enough to ride through those issues. We are all guilty in considering energy saving technologies with not once considering whether that product affects the electrical grid within the building. Elevator systems are the number one facility source plagued with pq issues. ", says Les Taniyama, IFMA-HI.
Technical Session Specifically Designed for:
Architects, Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Facility Engineers/Managers, Installing Contractors, Lighting Contractors, Elevator Contractors/Consultants, Suppliers and Manufacture Representatives, Utility, Building Maintenance Providers, VFD providers, Energy Service Companies, UHWO Facility Management Degree students, etc.

IFMA Hawai`i Chapter
Organizer of Power Quality & Harmonics Workshop
The proceeds from this training will allow UH West O'ahu and IFMA Hawaii to support the further development of the Facilities Management profession in Hawai'i and the academic degree program concentrations in Facilities Management at the University of Hawai'i at West O'ahu.
UH West O'ahu offers four-year bachelor's degrees in liberal arts, professional studies, and applied sciences designed for career success. Two academic facilities management concentrations in bachelor's degree programs at the University of Hawaiʻi – West Oʻahu (Applied Science and Business Administration) combine technical training with the liberal arts to focus on professional and management competencies to meet the demand for leadership of technical and operational professionals in the workplace. Professionals need a solid foundation in current building operations best practices in order to build and maintain modern energy-efficient facilities and systems. These academic pathways aare designed to prepare students and working professionals for positions in the building and facilities management fields.
Founded in 1980, IFMA is the world's largest and most widely recognized international association for facility management professionals, supporting 24,000 members in 105 countries. Hawaii's chapter is proud to be one of the 134 chapters worldwide, manage more than 37 billion square feet of property and annually purchase more than US $100 billion in products and services.
