Short Circuit Studies
Conducting timely short circuit studies, ideally, once every five years is important. This is all due to the high fault currents which may explode the equipment and lead to short circuits.
A short circuit current carries a large amount of negative energy which can get released through faulty electrical systems and damage your equipment and might lead to heavy losses. This current flows due to the failure of insulation barrier. As a result, it flow in a shorter path than the original circuit.
A detailed short circuit study on an electrical system should be performed when it is designed for the first time, or updated thereafter. Every time an electric circuit is expanded, reconfigured, or upgraded, its reliability gets hampered.
This is when a short circuit study helps in managing the involved complexities and ensuresthat your devices are properly protected against any failure.
