  • Design Engineering
    1. Load flow, Short Circuit Studies :

    Conduct load flow & short circuit studies to verify equipment rating under steady state and transient conditions

    2. Relay setting-Relay Co-ordination :

    Comprehensive relay setting & Co-ordination exercise to achieve sensitive, selective and speedy fault clearances.

    3. Generator Islanding-Load Shedding Scheme :

    Islanding and Load shedding studies to save most critical loads with available generation in case of emergency and to avoid complete black out.
