Power System Studies and Analyses

Industrial and institutional organizations must have a reliable, efficient and secure power system to run smoothly. They should also systematically use specialized power system studies that address both technical and financial aspects. These studies are crucial on numerous occasions, for example, to effectively plan an expansion project, increase operational efficiency or successfully integrate new technologies designed to achieve decarbonization objectives.

      A grid that complies with various standards

      Power system standards are forever becoming more stringent. To make the right decisions at the right time, it’s crucial to have a thorough understanding of the requirements put in place by system management authorities and to have a clear vision of their potential impact on your operations. Whether it’s to plan your expansion projects, increase the return on your investments, ensure the sustainability of your assets in the face of climate change risks or to facilitate technology-related decisions, you need to make sure your operations comply at all times.

      Plan your system effectively

      You may consider developing a comprehensive power system upgrade and refurbishment program to strategically manage your assets and decarbonize your operations.

      First, you need to establish the sequence of steps that will allow you to grow and achieve your long-term goals. To ensure your power system is well planned, you’ll need reliable data that’s been thoroughly verified in the field and rigorously measured using state-of-the-art equipment.

      Ensure operational continuity

      Your power system plays a critical role in your company’s reliability, so you need to minimize any losses caused by power outages, which can be very costly. Specialized power system studies make it easier to prevent or resolve operational issues, electromagnetic incompatibility or equipment failure, while ensuring the safety of your most valuable asset: your employees.
