Short Circuit

Purpose

We will determine fault levels throughout the power systems. The short circuit study will be used to:

  • Calculate minimum and maximum fault levels throughout the power system
  • Confirm the adequacy of your existing switchgear to cope with short circuits
  • Ensure switchgear is adequately rated throughout the power system
  • Select the correct rating of your switchgear before purchase
  • Investigate short circuits related incidents at site
  • Identify underrated equipment before extensive system damage can occur
  • Increase facility reliability, equipment protection and personnel safety
  • Aid in future expansion plans by providing accurate fault current calculations at each location in the system, thereby allowing properly rated equipment to be specified
