Arc Flash/Short Circuit and protective device coordination studies
Nelson Engineering Co. performs Arc Flash Hazard Analyses, Short Circuit Studies, and Protective Device Coordination Studies for a variety of customers including the Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratories (NETL), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) computer centers, General Services Administration (GSA) and United Launch Alliance at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Analysis and studies include:
Full field verification of all electrical equipment including removal of equipment covers from all equipment to determine equipment types, breaker sizes and types, and wire sizes, and types and lengths.
Code and Safety issues associated with the equipment.
Device adjustment for coordination.
Arc Flash Labeling of all equipment.
Complete electrical single line drawings with fault current values.
Our electrical engineers have in-depth knowledge of the National Electric Code (NEC), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards and applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards to help customers ensure the safety of their electrical systems. Our experienced team adapts to schedule constraints associated with required operations or secure facilities. With safety as our number one concern, we understand what it takes to safely obtain the proper field data, complete the modeling and analysis, prepare reports with recommendations for both safety and operability improvements and provide electrical safety training.
