Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is that there is no standardized way to describe power problems. Learn more about common power disturbances, what can cause them, and how to safeguard your critical equipment—all described in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard terms.

The impulsive transient is what most people are referring to when they say they have experienced a surge or a spike. Many different terms, such as bump, glitch, power surge, and spike have been used to describe impulsive transients. Causes of impulsive transients include lightning, poor grounding, the switching of inductive loads, utility fault clearing, and ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) . The results can range from the loss (or corruption) of data, to physical damage of equipment. Of these causes,
