In bit more than a decade, the electric power quality is continuing to grow from obscurity to a significant issue. Probably one of the most severe problems of the electric power quality is harmonic distortion, and its outcomes specifically the penetration of power electronic based loads, non linear loads, is creating a raising issue for the harmonic distortion, in the alternating current power system. Then the electric power quality is major concern for resources and their customers and both are quickly implementing the viewpoints for improving the quality of power. This paper gives the initial reports of power quality survey done in hostel and academic buildings of VIT University. Here the all power quality parameters readings are recorded and all complexities and consequences of power quality are mentioned in this paper. In order to reduce the large data by recording analyzing on all load over certain duration of time, some recording limits are to be allocated as per the IEC standards, for specific parameters which beyond the limit of standards are considered and various methods to be implemented to reduce the losses and also to improve the quality of power. © 2016 IEEE.
