An engineering study in which protective devices (i.e. relays, fuses, circuit breakers, etc.) are modeled against one another to determine their optimal settings. This is done to achieve selectivity in the event of a fault (limit affected equipment), protect equipment, and limit incident energy (protect employees).More Details
A short circuit study, often referred to as a fault study, is an analysis that engineers perform to determine the maximum available fault current at discrete points in the system (i.e. switchgear, switchboards, panelboards, MCC’s, etc.). This is done to ensure that new equipment being installed is suitably rated for the intended installation, as well as ensuring existing equipment is not overdutied (meaning the available fault current is not greater than the rating of the equipment ).More Details
Arc flash hazard mitigation involves taking steps to minimize the level of hazards within your facility in the event of an arc flash. PPE is sometimes thought of as the solution to injury, but this will not guarantee someone will be injury-free in an arc flash. It is important to consider the safety within your facility from an engineering standpoint to ensure the lowest risk for all workers.More Details
A harmonic current is caused by non-linear loads connected to the distribution system. A load is non-linear when the current does not have the same waveform as the supply voltage. These harmonic currents are generated by industrial equipment as well as electrical equipment in offices and usually result in soaring electric bills. A harmonic study can save energy which, in turn, can save costs for your facility.More Details
