Restructuring in network industries, high penetration of market players and increased demand, it is a necessary requirement to provide mains supply with controlled quality parameters such as harmonic distortion and voltage limits. To achieve this power systems owner needs to put restrictions on the connected loads which pollutes the power quality. This can be achieved using synchronised monitoring across various substations in the power systems followed by power quality improvement. Proposed in this paper is centralised power quality diagnostic system which uses global time reference with the aid of global positioning system (GPS) .
