Arc Flash Study

Increasing Safety Per NFPA 70E Requirements

Customers expect reliable power from utility companies, necessitating regular electrical maintenance, inspection and testing, often on live equipment. An arc flash study is crucial in safeguarding personnel conducting these tasks due to the potential hazards associated with exposed electrical parts.

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 Life-Safety Equipment

Industrial facilities frequently experience power blackouts, stemming from faults either on the utility side or within the load 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 aims to assess the harmonic profile of a specific area and recommend corrective actions to mitigate harmonic distortions. By reducing these distortions, the study aims to enhance power efficiency, achieve cost savings and ensure compliance with industry standards.

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 identifies the source of voltage dips or fluctuations and implements strategies to mitigate them. This study ensures effective control of heavy starting currents and addresses issues such as excessive voltage drops and flickering.
