Power System Study refers to any study performed on an electrical distribution system that helps to ensure the safety of plant/facility personnel.
Arc Flash Study
Needed to ensure a safe workplace environment for your employees. The OSHA General Duty Clause (5)(a)(1) states: “Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to the employees.”
Short Circuit Study
A short-circuit study is an analysis of an electrical system that determines the magnitude of the currents that flow during an electrical fault. Comparing these calculated values to the equipment ratings is another way to ensure that your equipment does not have disastrous failure.
A coordination study ensures that your electrical equipment is coordinating properly and in the event of an incident, the downstream breakers trip first which will prevent the upstream breakers from being involved and will minimize the power outage.
Load Flow and Voltage Drop Analysis
Ensure that your system voltages stay at the levels they should under normal or emergency operating conditions and can identify if specific equipment could be overloaded.
Motor Starting Analysis
Typically performed on large motors (100 HP or more) within larger commercial and industrial systems to ensure performance of the motors.
The Value of Power System Studies for Construction Projects
An inside look at what type of study is best for a particular application as well as how it can help you arrive at the safest and most cost-effective solution.
