Arc Flash Study & Power Engineering Services
Our professional engineers will give you confidence in the safety and reliability of your facility with an arc flash study and other power engineering services.
Specialists in performing an arc flash study, CBS Field Services provides a wide range of power engineering services across the U.S. This includes virtually all types of power system studies, electrical commissioning plans, and personnel training. These services ensure the reliable operation of your facility’s electrical system and the safety of your personnel.
Every upgrade, expansion, additional load, or other change in your power distribution system can result in conditions for which your power system was not designed. If appropriate adjustments are not made, an overload, short circuit, or ground fault can result in exposing your personnel to an unsafe condition and/or an unscheduled outage.
Our professional engineers have experience in performing electrical systems studies to ensure compliance with the requirements of NFPA 70E, IEEE, OSHA, and NEC. We can boost your confidence in the safety and reliability of your facility by providing an arc flash study, a coordination study, or a short circuit or other power system study for new facilities or expansions. We can also provide electrical maintenance and testing training for your personnel.
What Is an Arc Flash?
In simplest terms, an arc flash is an electrical explosion caused by a short circuit, either conductor-to-conductor or conductor-to-ground, that can result in the destruction of electrical equipment and serious injury or death to nearby workers.
What Is an Arc Flash Study?
Also known as an arc flash analysis or arc flash hazard study or analysis, our arc flash study includes an on-site evaluation of your electrical system, short circuit and coordination studies, and an incident energy analysis. An arc flash risk assessment is performed and recommendations are provided for arc flash equipment labeling, personal protective equipment (PPE) categories, and solutions to mitigate (lower) arc flash hazards in your facility.
