Engineering Services - RED.pngAbsolute Testing electrical engineering services offers professional electrical engineering and comprehensive consultation services. Our electrical engineering consultants are specialized in Short Circuit Coordination Study, Arc Flash Analysis, Protective Relay Application Design and Programming, Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis, and Power Quality.

 

 

Short Circuit/Coordination Studies

Absolute Testing licensed electrical engineers provide Short Circuit Coordination Studies of the various electrical distribution components connected within a facility. A Short Circuit Study or a fault calculation helps personnel determine the short circuit current available at different places in your electrical system. After completing a short circuit study, the next step is to coordinate all overcurrent protective devices (OCPD). Properly coordinated electrical systems provides additional protection to personnel and equipment by selectively clearing electrical faults at the closest OCPD. 

Power Quality Engineering

Absolute Testing Engineers offer engineering and comprehensive consultation services to correct the Power Quality deficiencies in your electrical system.  Some examples include Power Factor Correction, Harmonics, Surges, Voltage Sags and Swells as well as other issues. Our expertise in analyzing the data provided from power quality meters serves as a blueprint for recommendations for corrective actions.

Arc Flash Analysis

Absolute Testing licensed electrical engineers provide arc flash studies and mitigation solutions for your facility to help protect your employees and meet the requirements of OSHA and NFPA 70E. Arc flash is a serious electrical hazard with potentially devastating effects. Arc Flash Analysis must be completed and reviewed at intervals not exceeding five years or after making significant changes to your electrical systems.

Protective Relay Application Design and Programming

Electromechanical, solid-state, and microprocessor-based protective relays are designed to detect faults or abnormal conditions within an electrical distribution system. Absolute Testing Engineers understand the significant role of protective relay applications within the designed protection scheme, including the programming and testing of all types of Protective Relays.  

Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis

Absolute Testing engineers are experts in analyzing recorded fault data to determine the root cause of a power system problem. The relay event logs provide analytical data such as timing date stamps, current and voltage magnitudes, phase angle relationships, and frequency. Utilizing this data Absolute provides a visual representation of an electrical event and a corrective action plan.
