Power-quality problems arise when system incompatibility occurs between the AC power and the equipment. Either the quality of the AC distribution system or the AC voltage can contribute to power quality problems. In each case, the solution is different. So, in order to find the right solution or solutions, it is important to diagnose the problems correctly. Some typical power quality problems are:
When analyzing a potential power-quality problem, it is important to keep a trouble log. This helps to connect the problem to other events such as equipment operations or even utility problems. Check out PG&E's Power Note on A Self Checklist to Solve Power Problems for Sensitive Equipment (PDF, 30 KB). In the checklist are questions you should answer in your trouble log to help identify possible causes and possible solutions. Once you have diagnosed the problem correctly (such as voltage sags, outages, impulses, harmonics, electrical noise, voltage and current imbalances, interference or wiring and grounding, etc.), you can take preventive measures to mitigate the problem. Sometimes, the solution can be as simple as adjusting your equipment to make it less sensitive to power variations.

Black Box (PDF, 27 KB)A black box is a device or system with external wires which claims it can do something. In many cases, what's inside the box is a mystery. Many devices and systems on the market claim to improve the power quality or reliability of electric service. Some devices also claim to save energy. Often the technological claims are not clear or have not been verified in accordance with industry standards.
SEMI Standards F47/F42 (3-VOLT_SAGIMM_STD-8-10-07.PDF, 49 KB)As you may already be aware, interruptions in manufacturing processes can be very costly, causing potentially millions of dollars in lost revenue per day.

A power of attorney form allows an individual (principal) to appoint an agent (attorney-in-fact) to make decisions and handle affairs on their behalf. An agent can handle a wide range of matters, including financial, medical, guardianship, or tax-related duties (depending on the powers granted).
The principal can appoint an agent to handle any type of action that is legal under state law. The most common types transfer financial or medical powers to someone else in the event the principal should become incapacitated.
The two (2) most important qualities you should look for in your agent are accountability and trust. You want to be sure that your agent will be available during times of duress and faithfully execute your wishes. It is possible to list more than one agent in your power of attorney form in the event your primary agent falls ill or is unavailable when needed.
A: Many people think that you need to submit your power of attorney with the government however that is incorrect. Many states require that your power of attorney be notarized to ensure that the signatures are true, which is to help detour fraud. Only the principal needs to be present with the notary for the Power of Attorney to be notarized. You can find a notary at any banking or financial institution. The easiest way is to go to a banking institution that you are associated with, as they will usually do it for free. The last step is to make a copy of the power of attorney and give it to your agent and keep the original with you in a safe place.
A: This is ultimately determined by the laws in the State. Some States allow, if the principal specifically grants the powers, to allow the agent to modify their Last Will and Testament. However, this is not a method that is recommended to change a Will. 2b1af7f3a8
