Short Circuit Coordination Study
Maintaining System Reliability
A Short Circuit Coordination Study is crucial to maintaining system reliability and identifying potential risks associated with short circuits and the overall performance of your power systems.
When designing a new electrical system or upgrading an existing one, a Short Circuit Coordination Study is vital to ensure that the protective devices (such as circuit breakers, fuses, and relays) are correctly selected and coordinated with your power system. This means that in the event of a fault, the device closest to the fault will operate first, minimizing the impact on the rest of the system.
For existing systems, a routine study may be performed as part of routine maintenance or system evaluation. It is especially important for our engineers to review and analyze data to determine whether there have been changes to the system that might impact overall performance or utility upgrades.Request a Study
