CBEMA Power Quality Graph

The CBEMA (Computer and Business Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, typically pronounced sa-BEEM-ah) power quality graph plots the depth of voltage sags on the vertical axis against the duration of voltage sags on the horizontal axis. The green line on the graph shows the sag immunity suggested by CBEMA. The sags above, shown as blue dots, were …
