Power system analysis

Power system analysis is the key to ensuring that any problem is understood, possible solutions are evaluated in detail, solutions are designed and rated correctly, and implementations meet expectations. The importance of having the specialist skills required to carry out detailed and comprehensive power system studies cannot be emphasised enough. Our team uses the best power system analysis tools available to carry out load flow and fault level studies, harmonic impact and filter design studies, switching and transient analysis and network stability studies, enabling us to work closely with clients and their consultants to design, engineer and deliver the best power compensation and solutions available.

As early adopters of the DIgSILENT PowerFactory software, we are trained, familiar and constant users of the powerful software that allows us to do studies that include:

For power generation:

  • Grid connection feasibility studies
  • Grid connection applications and compliance
  • Renewable generation (wind and solar) farm grid integration studies and reticulation system optimisation
  • Co-generation studies

For network planning:

  • Network optimisation
  • Technical and economic optimisation
  • Contingency and reliability analysis
  • Voltage stability studies

For general power quality:

  • Harmonic load-flow and analysis
  • Harmonic filter design
  • Power factor correction
  • Voltage flicker assessment
  • Transformer and capacitor switching transients
  • Ferro resonance
  • Insulation co-ordination studies
  • Motor starting simulations
