Flash Hazard Analysis
Always at the leading edge of technology, Cadick Corporation is the first engineering firm to offer flash hazard analysis. More details.
Cadick Corporation models your power system using our state-of-the-art analysis
software. We then perform various transient and/or steady state stability studies to determine whether your system will return to normal operation following a short or long term perturbation.
Short Circuit Analysis
A short circuit analysis is performed to determine the adequacy of your
interrupting devices (such as circuit breakers) and to identify correct
set points for instantaneous elements. A short circuit analysis is required
for proper sizing of circuit breakers and/or fuses.
Protective Device Coordination
Using a graphical software program, Cadick Corporation selects optimum set points for you
time overcurrent devices. Such a study is necessary to insure that only the
minimum amount of your system is de-energized when a short circuit occurs.
A load flow study calculates the currents, voltages, and phase angles for
each bus in your system. This information is used to determine proper
sizing of current carrying equipment, to identify overloaded devices, and
to determine locations where power factor correction may be required.
A motor starting study is performed to determine the voltages, currents,
and starting times involved when starting large motors. Such a study is
critical before installing a large motor to make certain that your system
can start the motor successfully. It may also be performed anytime a change
in the power supply is implemented.
Harmonic studies involve a two phase approach. First your system harmonic
levels are measured using recording equipment. Second, using a computer
model, harmonic load flows, voltages, and currents are calculated. The
results from the two studies are compared, and trouble spots are
identified. The results of these studies can then be used to prepare
corrective actions such as filters.
Using standard IEEE models, your system operations are analyzed and
compared to industry norms. Outage records which exceed industry standards
are pinpointed and corrective actions are recommended.
Your system installations are reviewed by our field experienced engineers.
Protective schemes, classified locations, conductor sizing, transformer
sizing, grounding, and many other items are inspected and compared to the
NEC, NESC, IEEE, ANSI, and other applicable design and safety standards. If
upgrading or modifications are required, they are identified in the final
New or existing grounding systems are analyzed or designed according to
IEEE standards. Properly designed grounding systems are required to insure
The condition of your power system equipment is analyzed by a combination
of on-site inspections, operational reviews, and test records analysis.
Trouble spots are identified and corrective recommendations developed.
Cadick Corporation is expert in the provision of small to medium size design projects. Our
design expertise includes protective schemes, control systems, SCADA
systems, and generation installations.
Using AutoCAD software, we can update and or create single-line diagrams,
three-line diagrams, elementary diagrams, and wiring diagrams. Our clients
are supplied with paper prints, electronic files, or -- optionally -- both.
