Mr. Sean Elphick (Research Coordinator) graduated from the University of Wollongong with a BE(elec) (hons) degree in 2002 after completing thesis projects in the area of power quality. In 2003 he joined the then Integral Energy Power Quality Centre to work on the Strategic Partnerships with Industry - Research and Training Scheme (SPIRT) project. The aim of the SPIRT project was to develop cost-effective methods for monitoring large power systems, including a specification for monitoring instruments, their number and location, methods of data compression, automatic recognition of the types of disturbances and characterisation by useful power quality indices. He is currently employed by the Australian Power Quality and Reliability Centre to provide support to for the projects that the Centre is engaged on. This work often involves undertaking power quality surveys and p reparing reports. He is heavily involved in the production of the National Long Term Power Quality Survey, a power quality survey involving most electricity distributors in the eastern states. His interests lie in power quality monitoring methodology, instrumentation and power quality standards. Mr Elphick graduated with a Masters of Engineering - Research in 2011.
