ARC FLASH SAFETY, POWER SYSTEM MODELLING AND ANALYSIS

We are an electrical engineering consultancy specialised in arc flash safety, power system modelling and analysis for industrial, mining and building services  segments.

MINING CLIENTS

We assist our clients to design new electrical systems or to optimise reliability  in existing electrical networks. Based on our comprehensive review, a detailed action plan can be implemented to address the identified issues and inefficiencies in brownfield applications.

With this review the reliability of the electrical supply can be increased and the loss of production can be minimised due to the reduced down time.

WHAT IS AN ARC FLASH

An arc flash is the sudden release of electrical energy through the air when an arcing fault occurs between phase-to-phase, phase-to-neutral, or phase-to-ground conductors. An arc flash gives off thermal radiation (heat) and bright, intense light. Arc flash temperatures have been recorded as high as 19,500˚C. This extreme temperature melts and vaporizes metals and can ignite clothing and cause fatal burns as far as 3 meters away.

WHY CHOOSE PSE&M?

With power system modelling we can analyse performance and reliability issues of existing electrical networks. Weaknesses can be identified and recommendation can be made to rectify them.

With power system studies may involve equipment evaluation, protective device coordination, short-circuit calculation, transient analysis, load flow and power quality assessment as required.

Our review the reliability of the electrical supply can be increased
and the loss of production can be minimised due to the reduced down time.

CONTACT PSE&M TODAY

PSE&M can conduct an arc flash hazard calculation study to address the arc flash risk in accordance with NFPA70E. Recommendations can be made as to how to reduce the arc flash hazard to an acceptable level by completing an arc flash hazard mitigation study.
Assistance can be provided by reviewing and updating the electrical safety management plan to address this risk at management level in line with the arc flash hazard calculation or mitigation study.
Arc flash labels for electrical equipment can provided.
