Safety for Distribution Equipment


Condition + Time + Distance = SAFETY
 
Three elements of safety

Condition - improved condition of the equipment is a key factor in reducing the likelihood of failure, damage and injury

Time - reduction of time for clearing fault conditions has a dramatic impact on the energy released and consequent damage and injury

Distance - maintaining a safe distance between personnel and equipment during critical operations provides the most effective means of avoiding injury by keeping people out of harms way


We can help you address all safety elements.

Condition
  • Asset Risk Assessment - establishes the risk profile of equipment based on its condition and importance in the system and prioritizes actions to mitigate the risk before a hazard occurs
  • Preventive and condition based maintenance programs provide - improved reliability and reduced operator exposure
  • Equipment upgrades and RIR - reduced operator exposure to gear with reduced maintenance, faster cycle reduced clearing times
 Time
  • REA relay - clearing time of arc faults
  • Is limiters upgrades - addresses over burdened fault duties that could cause catastrophic failure
  • Ultra Fast Earthing Switches - detection and grounding of faults in times significantly faster than breaker clearing times
  • Relay upgrades - micro processor relays operate faster than EM and support faster clearing time
  • Arc flash studies - establish current PPE requirements and determine how improvements impact the cal levels
 Distance
  • Remote racking - operator distance from the gear, closed door racking
  • IR ports - thermal measurements with doors closed
  • VisiVolt - visual bus indicator that displays when bus is hot
