Solutions Matrix

The following Solutions Matrix shows types of power disturbances that could impact your business and potential solutions that could resolve these problems.

The types of disturbances are shown across the top of the chart. You can click on the disturbance type to view a brief explanation of that specific problem.

The potential solutions are listed down the left side of the chart. You can click on the potential solution to view a brief explanation. Each potential solution is color coded to indicate the likelihood of that particular solution correcting the associated disturbance. The color coding is:

Green check Indicates that the disturbance will generally be corrected by the identified solution.
Yellow check Indicates that the disturbance generally may not be fully corrected by the identified solution. Device design and performance varies.
Blank circle Indicates that the disturbance generally cannot be corrected by the identified solution.
