Electrical Studies After a Plant Expansion

Project Scope:

Review and update of power systems studies for five plants at industrial site

Project Type:

Industrial Substations

Location:
Louisiana
Year Completed:
2020

An industrial customer's ongoing plant expansions caused changes to the electrical power system that required the overall system protections to be re-analyzed. We were already completing an engineering and procurement project for the customer, involving a 230/34.5kV substation and 230kV transmission line, and they knew that we had the high voltage project expertise to handle this second project for them. We helped our customer update their power system protections to ensure a safe and properly functioning electrical system.

We reviewed and updated multiple power systems studies, including Fault Current Analysis, Time Current Coordination Curves, and Arc Flash Hazard Analysis.

Detailed Scope of Work

• Supporting a $1.49 billion plant expansion

• Arc Flash Hazard Analysis

• Fault Current Analysis

• Time Current Coordination Curves
