Minimize Delays and Cost Impact of After Installation Changes
Power System Studies provide information and guidance that your switchgear ratings exceed the requirements for the end electrical system. Power System Studies further provide arc flash safety information to meet OSHA and local AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) requirements. Performing these studies prior to final equipment design and installation can save valuable time and money as equipment modifications on site increase costs and lead to delays.
At your request, Point Eight Power will generate and complete Power Systems Studies on switchgear prior to manufacturing to ensure the equipment ratings exceed your electrical system requirements. If the study finds any discrepancies, Point Eight will suggest various solutions prior to manufacturing to minimize delays and any cost impact caused by changes. Point Eight can also provide an arc flash hazard analysis and labeling, if required, prior to shipment that complies with NFPA 70E to meet OSHA and AHJ requirements.
All Power Systems Studies are performed using SKM Systems Analysis Power Tools for Windows™ (PTW) software and are reviewed and approved by a Registered Professional Electrical Engineer.
Request a Power Systems Study with your next switchgear order to ensure the equipment ordered meets your project’s electrical rating and safety requirements to avoid costly commissioning delays and change orders.
