Power Quality Audit

Power Quality issues can take many forms; harmonics, voltage hangs/swells, flicker, transients etc. Regularly the cost of power quality moderation is little contrasted with the expenses related to the issue itself. The issue of poor power quality is that it goes to a great extent unnoticed. The symptomatic results of poor power quality issues are regularly ascribed inaccurately to different causes.

Poor power quality is caused by:

1) Harmonic distortion and voltage fluctuation.

2) Low power factor

3) Power electronic loads like variable speed drives, CNC machines, etc.

4) Inadequate wiring design and undersized circuits

What we can do?

In order to completely analyze the power quality issues, we conduct a thorough study of the following common issues:

Customer Issue/Requirement

Failure of equipment, Nuisance tripping, flickering of lamps etc.

Deliverables

Detailed measurement analysis and recommendation of solutions which may include UPS, voltage regulators, isolation transformers, harmonic filters etc.

Harmonic Audit

Customer Issue/Requirement

Mandatory requirement from EB/supply companies, penalty due to high harmonics, overheating/failure of equipment’s.

Deliverables

Measurement of harmonics is measured to check the harmonics level and analyze based on IEEE 519-2014, CEA guidelines and suggest suitable solutions for harmonic mitigation.

Voltage Regulation Test

Customer Issue/Requirement

Failure of electronic/IT equipment’s, tripping of circuit breakers etc.

Deliverables

Measure and analyze long-term voltage fluctuations as per (study as per EN50160).

Reactive Power Management

Customer Issue/Requirement

Penalty due to low PF, demand optimization.

Deliverables

Measure and analyze long-term voltage fluctuations as per (study as per EN50160).

Electrical Safety Audit

Electrical Safety Assessment deals with analyzing the safety of electrical installations in a facility. It is applicable for Industries, Power sector, Service sectors such as IT Parks, Hotels, Hospitals, Telecommunications and much more. The electrical safety assessment concentrates on current electrical safety conditions and chose other safety measures for the facility. Electrical safety assessment is conducted in a facility to ensure that electrical establishment is working in an electrically safe way and are meeting their commitments.

Electrical safety assessment helps in

1) Identifying electrical hazards to limit the danger of accidents like fire because of short-circuiting

2) Identifying areas of risk or weakness in electrical frameworks and installations

3) Ensuring durability of costly electronic equipment like PCs and different machines

4) Development of a dynamic record of security execution

5) Ensuring consistency with Regulatory and industry safety related accepted procedures

Electrical Safety Audit Methodology

Service Description

Our electrical safety assessment is conducted in an organized manner:

  • Our audit team performs an informal interview with operations, maintenance and safety personnel for resource planning, familiarization of plant process/activities and to decide the methodology, safety training, safety equipment and other such safety-related items.
  • Conduct a brief meeting with management and employees for later statistical and graphical analysis.
  • A physical walk-through is performed to review all electrical installations. All the necessary details required are collected in this time frame.
  • Finally, in an exit meeting, an overview of the findings including any life threats within the facility and standard safety code violations are addressed.
  • After the site visit, a  report is also submitted including all our findings, solutions and recommendations for improving electrical safety.
Scope of Electrical Safety Audit
  • Review of statutory compliance with respect to IE rule and other relevant standards.
  • Review of electrical safety systems & procedures.
  • Review of electrical maintenance practices and physical inspection of the electrical system to avoid any hazards.
  • Thermal imaging of electrical, mechanical and thermal systems.
  • Review of documents such as test reports, documentation, policies & SOPs, history cards, AMC documents, work permit systems, LOTO documents etc.
  • Review of electrical accidents and near-misses to identify the causes.
  • Inspection to identify electrical hazards and recommendation of electrical safety solutions.
  • Identification of fire causes such as arc flash, fire in cables and wires, explosion of battery, overloading in the electrical network etc.
  • Review of lightning protection systems.
  • Review of electrical shock protection devices and earth leakage devices.
  • Review of Hazardous area classification.
  • Review of company safety policy

Earthing System Study

The key element in any electrical safety system is earthing. Proper designing, commissioning and maintaining is essential for a safer working environment. But due to various reasons, many fail to maintain their earthing system as per the standards and requirements.

Why earthing is important?
  • Essential for the safe operation of the electrical systems/equipment.
  • Current will flow to earth in case of any fault which reduces the risk of accidents.
What we can do?
  • A complete inspection of the earthing system based on IS/IEC 62305 & NBC 2016.
  • Calculation of complete earthing system required for the premises.
  • Compliance checking with the existing system with a design
  • Measurement of earth pit resistance, earth loop impedance to determine the health of the earthing system.
  • Identification of faults in the earthing system
Deliverables
  • A report including recommendations and major observation to increase the reliability of the earthing system.
  • The best practices/standards to be followed for the efficient earthing system will be included in the report.
