Arc Flash Study Pro
Power Studies

Facilities of all sizes rely on a steady, reliable, and well-maintained electrical power distribution system. Even small electrical failures or faults can have devastating consequences including extensive downtime of company operations, damage of equipment or inventory in the event of a power outage, and expense of locating and repairing damaged equipment. Protect your facility by having an electrical power system analysis performed by the Arc Flash Study Pro and give your engineers specific instructions on how best to specifically improve, optimize, and maintain your electrical system.

We specialize in a variety of electrical power studies including arc flash analysis, protective device coordination, power flow analysis, short circuit study, motor start analysis, and medium voltage relay setting correction.

Power Studies
OSHA Compliance with Arc Flash Hazard Prevention Requirements

Power Studies (Power System Analysis)

(Power Studies may also be referred as a Power Analysis, Power System Analysis, Electrical Power Studies, or Power Coordination Studies)

An Electrical Power Study is a combination of any or all of the electrical power studies available to analyze and diagnose your electrical power system. Arc Flash Study Pro specializes in those studies most important and beneficial for you to maintain and optimize your electrical power system. These include the Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Short Circuit Study, Protective Device Coordination, Power Flow Analysis, Motor Start Analysis, and more.

Arc Flash Study

(Also referred as an Arc Flash Analysis or a Arc Flash Hazard Analysis)

Performed to determine the available arc fault currents and arc flash hazards, and also to ensure that your workers are using the proper personal protection equipment (PPE) and safety equipment. Arc flash hazard exists whenever personnel are servicing electrical equipment in the energized state. OSHA 1910 regulations clearly state that a STUDY MUST BE PERFORMED by a licensed professional in order to determine these values. We are an NFPA member and use the industry-leading NFPA 70E method.

Short Circuit Study

(Also referred as a Short Circuit Analysis, Electrical Failure Analysis, or as an Electrical Fault Analysis)

Performed to determine if the interrupting capacities of the power system components are adequate enough to protect your power system. The National Electrical Code® requires that all short circuit interrupting devices have ratings sufficient for the current which must be interrupted. A severe fault (short circuit) can have catastrophic consequences on your electrical system. Electrical systems often go through changes without consideration of short circuit level and equipment rating changes. New buildings and installations aren't immune, and fault levels can vary between systems and locations. ALL SYSTEMS WILL FAULT AT SOME POINT. An Electrical Failure Analysis, also commonly referred to as a Short Circuit Study, will provide the information required to determine if the interrupting capacities of the power system components are adequate enough to protect your power system.

Circuit Breaker Coordination (Protective Device Coordination)

(Also referred to as a Short Circuit Coordination Study, Time Current Coordination, or as Power System Protection)

Performed to ensure that the system protective devices will quickly isolate a fault and minimize the disturbance on your electrical system. A Protective Device Coordination Study will show us the probable and possible values of fault currents within your system and show you the impact short circuits and failures would have on your fuses, circuit breakers, and your facility's operation.

Medium Voltage Relay Settings

Performed to ensure your relay's are set correctly to increase equipment protection, ensure protective relay coordination, and limit the effects of a disturbance. Medium Voltage Relays are used to protect power system devices including generators, transformers, buses, and feeder lines from power system faults. There are several different kinds of faults such as phase to ground and phase to phase and other combinations. There can be many different causes of these faults with the most common being lightning, rodents, human interference, aging of equipment, and adverse weather. The relay is used to detect the fault and then open breakers in the area to clear the fault. Relays must be set correctly to increase equipment protection, ensure protective relay coordination, and limit the effects of a disturbance.
