E-learning with pre-solved animations can provide a better understanding of the status and different network options, compared to complex simulation or a set of equations. In this paper, examples of such animations for e-learning for power quality are presented. Different network options in a centralized or distributed power system and power electronics based compensators are introduced in the form of a new web-based, software learning tool. Power flow congestion and the impact of power electronic compensators on the system, including detailed operations of power electronic based compensators are presented. These compensators include SVCs, Statcom and UPFC presented in this paper. Using these animated tools, both system level and component level operation of these devices are presented. Further the frequent solutions of power factor correction (PFC) applied on low power level of several hundred watts are treated in the paper.
