Studies

3.1

Data Collection
.1

The consultant shall verify all data collected by the owner and owners
representative on site.

.2

POWER SYSTEM STUDY


Page 4 of 7

Data collection will begin at the utility interconnection point and


continue through the Owners electrical distribution system as defined by
the scope of work.
Only circuits and systems included in IEEE 1584 shall be included.
The study shall include equipment rated 208V and greater.

The consultant shall obtain from the utility the minimum, normal, and maximum
operating service voltage levels, three-phase short circuit MVA and X/R ratio, as
well as line-to-ground short circuit MVA and X/R ratio at the point of connection.
.1

When utility information is not available, reasonable assumptions may be


made for the maximum and minimum values and applied to the scenarios
developed for the analysis to ensure a worst case range is determined.

.3

The consultant shall interview the operators and site personnel to determine the
normal operating conditions of the site to ensure all operational scenarios are
included in the analysis. Detail all switching configurations in the report in a
manner that is easily understood.

.4

The Owner shall provide qualified personnel to show the consultant the
equipment location, and to open all equipment doors, locks, etc to collect and
verify all nameplate data.

.5

If data is not available for protective devices, reasonable assumptions may be


made based on the device type and characteristics. These assumptions should
err to increase incident energy levels. All assumptions shall be clearly indicated
on the one-line diagram and within the protection coordination study.

.6

Transformer design impedances shall be used when test impedance values are
not available.

3.2

Short Circuit Study


.1

The purpose of the short circuit study is to determine the bolted faults at all
parts of the electrical system. The short circuit study shall operation during all
system configurations that may result in maximum fault conditions.

.2

The short circuit study shall include all pertinent data, assumptions, clarifications
and rational used in developing the calculations.

For solidly-grounded systems, provide a bolted line-to-ground fault current study


for applicable buses as determined by the engineer performing the study.

3.3

Protection Coordination Study


.1

The purpose of the protection coordination study is to verify existing settings


minimize damage caused by an electrical fault and allow for preferential
