Electrical Studies

Why are electrical studies required? 

Electrical Studies are required by Federal law to mitigate risk and liability. The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires these types of studies in order to comply with current building code regulations. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) also requires that these studies be completed for fire safety. There are additional requirements which must be me for Health Care Facilities and other specialized industries.

What are electrical studies?

Short-Circuit Study- A short-circuit study determines whether electrical equipment is properly rated for any abnormal electric current it would experience in the event of a short-circuit. This study is performed after the electrical equipment has been approved, but before it has been shipped to the site.

Arc-Flash Analysis- This risk assessment calculates the possible damage that could occur due to an arc-flash. The study determines the amount of energy that a person could be exposed to as a result of a fault to help avoid serious injury or death. Equipment is required to be labeled.

Coordination Study- Coordination of devices such as circuit breakers, fuses and protection relays is done to determine the best available protection for the electrical system as well as to minimize the amount of the electrical system that may be affected during a possible fault.
