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.
