USP&E ETAP Study Africa: Short-Circuit Analysis

Short-circuit currents produce excessive detrimental energies within the electrical system. These excessive energies appear as heat and magnetic force. A thorough short circuit analysis accurately picks up any possibility of short-circuit faults within the electrical system. Short circuit analysis also investigates the capability of the protective devices to adequately quench these currents. It ascertains the appropriate interrupting ratings for the devices. If electrical faults exceed the interrupt rating of the protective devices, the effects can be catastrophic, resulting in harm to people, electrical equipment, and causing loss of project earnings. USP&E ETAP Study Africa has reliable computational analysis methods that equip the engineers for the safety, efficiency, and economical operation of the electrical system in all stages of planning, designing, operating, and troubleshooting of the electrical system.


USP&E ETAP Study Africa: Load Flow Analysis

It is imperative to establish the steady-state loading profile of the electrical system. USP&E ETAP Study Africa establishes the electrical system’s steady-state operating conditions. The following investigations are then thoroughly made:

  • Component loading
  • Bus voltage profiles
  • Power system losses
  • Appropriate transformer tap settings
  • Real and reactive power flow analysis


Furthermore, the simulations are adjusted to model normal and abnormal operating conditions. Any overloaded conductors and zones of excessive voltage drop in the conductors can be identified. Using such valuable information, the electrical system can then be optimized for maximum output and minimum losses. USP&E ETAP Study Africa produces comprehensive reports that can enhance your electrical system understanding and equip you to make strategic decisions. Proper load flow analysis prevents unnecessary future stoppage time due to faults that can cripple project operations.


USP&E ETAP Study Africa: Parameter Estimation

USP&E ETAP Study Africa uses sophisticated rules, mathematical approximations, and curve fitting procedures to fill in missing details crucial for modelling electrical systems. Extra significant machine attributes and nameplate figures are automatically computed based on the estimated model. The parameter estimation functionality can be trusted to compute typical equivalent circuit model parameters. This functionality is critical and time saving for early designs and modelling when the design engineer is not in possession of the complete load list parameters.


USP&E ETAP Study Africa: Arc Flash Analysis

Arcing faults release massive explosive energy. Such explosions are dangerous to both property and people. Arc flash analysis detects and investigates on the electrical system all the hazardous arc flash zones.  Arc flash analysis simulates a number of set-ups and investigates the arrangement that will result in the greatest incident energy. The arcing fault currents and their duration are detected. Not only are the dangers identified, but various ways are modeled that can then be used to alleviate the immense incident energy. Furthermore, protective devices are investigated to check their operating time and detect improper progression of protective device function. Our arc flash analysis is comprehensive and produces detailed reports for each case modeled.


USP&E ETAP Study Africa: Harmonics Analysis

Nonlinear loads introduce harmonics within an electrical system. Harmonics introduce various power quality problems and thus must be kept to a minimum. Harmonic analysis is performed to investigate the total harmonic voltage and current distortion of the electrical system. USP&E ETAP Study Africa study includes harmonic analysis in an electrical system.  It then efficiently applies appropriate harmonic filtering solutions.
