Arc Flash Study | Increasing Safety Per NFPA 70E Requirements
Power reliability from the utility company is expected by customers. There is often the need to perform electrical maintenance work and/or inspection or testing on exposed and sometimes live parts of electrical equipment. It is for these reasons that an arc flash study is critical for the protection of those conducting such work.
Short Circuit Study | To comply with NEC Requirements
The Short Circuit Analysis required by NEC is used for the safety of the equipment and the personnel working on or around it by establishing the appropriate interrupting ratings of the protective devices (circuit breakers and fuses) and marking the maximum available short circuit on electrical equipment.
Load Flow Study | Increasing Equipment Reliability And Improving Facility Planning
The load flow study is used to demonstrate the performance of the system under normal and emergency conditions. It is a steady state analysis of the electrical network which is geared to identify the key areas for improvement in loading conditions, thus ensuring safe operation of the power system.
Coordination Study | Increasing Reliability Especially For The Life-Safety Equipment
Power blackouts often occur in industrial facilities. The reasons could be a fault in the utility side or a fault on the load ends of the feeders. How can we confirm that a circuit breaker is capable of interrupting the electrical faults in the system without hindering reliability? The answer – a coordination study.
Power Quality Study | Increasing Reliability Under Special Conditions
A Power Quality Study seeks to evaluate the harmonic footprint of the area under study and accordingly recommend corrective measures to minimize harmonic distortions and ensure power saving and standard compliance.
Ground Grid Study | Increasing Reliability Especially For Life-Safety Equipment
The primary goal of a ground grid/mat study is to analyze the step and touch potentials and prevent the occurrence of shock related incidents.
Motor Starting Study | Increasing Reliability Under Special Conditions
A motor starting study is used to identify the root cause of voltage dips or fluctuations and deploy mitigation techniques to combat the excessive voltage drops voltage flickering along with the providing effective control of the heavy starting currents.
