Power Distribution

Industrial facilities are typically the largest electricity consumers on any network. The high levels of energy required can introduce problems that are non-existent in lower density installations.

Common electrical challenges at an industrial facility:

  • High arc flash hazards due to lower voltages and high energy levels.
  • High harmonic distortion due to variable frequency drives and other non-linear loads.
  • Circulating ground currents causing heating in unexpected places.
  • Managing and maintain large numbers of protection relays having different settings.
  • Aging equipment becoming obsolete and difficult to repair or maintain.
  • Maintaining updated electrical drawings and schematics.
