Power Systems Engineering

An electrical distribution system that functions optimally is essential for a reliable power supply. Every new load, expansion, upgrade and configuration change in your network can produce conditions for which your network was not originally designed. If there are faults in the protection system, any relatively small errors such as overloads, short circuits or earth faults can lead to significant financial damage as a result of uncontrolled interruptions to the voltage in your company. The network studies conducted by RENEWABLE show where critical points occur in your network. We provide you with information so that the right decisions can be made when planning upgrades or expansions of your electrical system. This results in lower operational costs, greater availability and minimum risk of faults. At this field of engineering, RENEWABLE provides the following services:
