More than just troubleshooting problems.
Managing an electrical system also involves identifying potential issues and eliminating or mitigating their effects. The analysis and diagnosis of any engineered system guards against improper operation and the possibility of catastrophic losses.
Our analytical studies help ensure your electrical system operates as it was designed and intended.
Each power system study includes a detailed report of findings along with corrective recommendations to help maximize the reliability and operational efficiency of your system.
Protective Device Time-Current Coordination Analysis
Evaluates an electrical system’s protective devices, including relays, fuses and circuit breakers, and the equipment to which they are applied.
Short Circuit Analysis
Calculates the fault current levels throughout the power system. The interrupting duties of the devices being analyzed are compared with the available fault currents.
Load Flow Analysis
Addresses present electrical system deficiencies or identifies system requirements to meet future demand.
Identifies the sources of power quality issues that can reduce system efficiency and increase operating costs. Harmonics are typically found in facilities with a large number of non-linear loads and electronic networks.
Motor Starting Analysis
The most significant effect of starting large motors is voltage sag, which extends the acceleration time, potentially causing thermal and mechanical stresses. This analysis calculates the voltage, current, and the accelerating torque of motors during the starting process.
Switching Transient Modeling and Analysis
Determines stresses that system components are exposed to and recommends corrective measures.
Quantifies the probability that a system or component will operate as intended. These are typically performed for mission-critical power systems.
Substation Ground Grid Analysis
Optimizes grid geometry and evaluates high-risk areas of the switchyard. Opportunities for risk mitigation are also identified.
Evaluates various power system scenarios corresponding to switching actions or the initiation of a fault. They are typically applied to facilities that utilize large generators.
