Short Circuit Study & Analysis

The Short Circuit Study can reduce the risk your company faces as well as help to avoid catastrophic losses. 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. Keep in mind, that all systems will fault at some point. A Fault Analysis Study will help you avoid extensive equipment and system damage, and personnel injury because of under-rated equipment in the event of a fault.

Local Utilities Regulations requires that all short circuit interrupting devices to have ratings sufficient for the current which must be interrupted. 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.

  • Identify underrated equipment before extensive 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
