ENGINEERING STUDIES

load flow

A load flow analysis can help your company to identify possible hazards that are hiding in your electrical distribution system:

  • Feeders and cables improperly selected, that can cause heating and fire hazards
  • Overcurrent protective devices that will not properly protect your electrical distribution system
  • Dangerous voltage drops or sustained over-voltages
  • Overloaded transformers that can represent a high risk of fire
  • This analysis can also help to identify savings related to power losses, power factor and other energy saving opportunities.

short circuit

A short circuit analysis can help your company to identify possible hazards that are hiding in your electrical distribution system:

  • Feeders and cables improperly protected against short circuits
  • Overcurrent protective devices with underrated interruptive rating that represent a high risk for accidents and fires
  • Underrated panels, switches, and MCC’s
  • This analysis can provide important information necessary for other analysis as proper selection of PPE, protective coordination, and Arc-Flash

protective coordination

A protective coordination analysis can help your company to improve the safety and reliability of the electrical system:

  • Review the protection of the main electrical components of your system
  • Prevent extensive black outs
  • Ensure that only the closest overcurrent protective device to the fault will trip
  • Avoid fires, accidents and production losses

arc flash hazard analysis

An Arc-Flash hazard analysis is an important tool developed to predict the incident energy that could impact the chest and the face of a worker in the case of an event like this. With this knowledge, actions can be planned and taken to prevent injuries to the maintenance personnel:

  • Develop an electrical safety plan
  • Select the proper PPE
  • Develop energized work permits
  • Identify places with high potential risk, where working on live equipment should be avoided
  • Comply with NFPA 70E, OSHA and NEC

other electrical engineering analysis

  • Transient Motor Starting
  • Harmonic Analysis
  • Ground Grid Design/Audit
  • System Reliability
