Power Engineering Studies

Would you like to increase capacity and profit just by tweaking your current assets?

Before outlaying big dollars on capital investments, consider the benefits of engaging Megavar to undertake the required power system studies. Studies can find the root cause of lost performance or protection mal-operations and uncover additional headroom in your existing assets.

Engineering studies verify system protection, fault ratings of electrical equipment, and the overall reliability of your system. Megavar’s power engineers use advanced tools to analyse the needs of your power system assets and provide you with critical information to make informed decisions.

Megavar can assist you with the following studies:

Load Flow Studies
Load flow studies evaluate the power system to ensure it is adequately designed to satisfy your performance criteria. A properly designed system helps contain capital investment and future operating costs.

Power Factor Studies
Power factor correction studies are performed to improve the existing power factor in the plant-minimizing your risk of fines or higher energy bills, while improving energy efficiency.

Power Quality Studies
Get to the root of power quality problems by examining harmonics, load flow and power factors to understand the source of the disturbances and develop solutions to reduce system loading.

Power System Reliability Studies
Power System Reliability studies provides information necessary to upgrade and maintain the power delivery system. The results focus on reducing operating costs, improving efficiency and increasing reliability.

Harmonic Analysis
Harmonic analysis is part of a power quality study to identify the source of harmonics and develop a plan for corrective action.

Short Circuit / Coordination Studies
Short Circuit / Coordination studies evaluate the magnitude of currents flowing through the power system to recommend ratings/device settings to ensure minimum service interruption under overload and short circuit conditions

Arc Flash Studies
Arc flash analysis identifies the presence and location of potential hazards and provides recommendations for PPE, boundaries for limited, restricted and prohibited approaches, flash protection and safe work practices.

Earthing Studies
Earthing Studies evaluates the effectiveness of the earthing system to ensure safety of equipment and people from EPR during faults and lightning.

Protection setting studies
Protection setting studies (or relay setting studies) are performed on all new power systems and whenever existing power systems are modified or upgraded. They include load flow analysis and protection coordination studies; and establish system data, calculate fault levels, provide settings and schedules, and include drawings and graphs as required.
