Electrical Safety Study
Electrical Safety is one of the top most priorities for the management
of any industrial setup. Electrical Safety Analysis covers a systematic,
critical appraisal of all potential electrical hazards involving
personnel, Electrical Systems/Installations, services, operation
methodologies and review the compliance of electrical system/electrical
installation and maintenance practices with regard to the statutory
The Voltage of electricity and available electrical current in industries has enough power to seriously injure or even cause death by electrocution. It is the management’s duty to ensure safety of its employees and people visiting the facility. The injuries caused by electricity include: electrocution, electric shock, burns etc.
P2 Power conducts Electrical Safety Analysis to assess the electrical distribution network. It brings out the various risks associated with the electrical equipment operating in or is affected by a hostile environment, which must be regularly inspected, tested and maintained by a competent authority.
Electrical Fire Risk Management
Electrical system is considered as the “Backbone” of all industrial & commercial installations. Any disruptions in the electrical system can bring the whole system to stand-still and thus making it very critical part of any installation.
Fire Risk Management is an comprehensive or integrated approach to understand and manage the risks posed by the threat of fire which enables an entity/ facility to optimize its underlying processes to achieve more efficient results. Fire is one of the major concerns for any type of facility whether Industry, Commercial Building or Residential Apartments. As per the NCRB’s 2014 ADSI Report, ~4% accidents occurred due to fire which accounts to total of 19,513 casualties.
P2Power solutions conduct fire safety studies as per Indian and International standards and benchmarks for identification of hazards and gaps viz. damaged or loose electrical cords, high neutral current, improper grounding, overloading power outlets etc and related to fire safety.
Relay & Release coordination study
In any power system network, protection should be designed such that protective relays isolate the faulted portion of the network at the earliest, in order to prevent equipment damage, injury to operators and to ensure minimum system disruption enabling continuity of service to healthy portion of the network.
When relays meant to protect specific equipment (s), transmission/distribution lines/feeders or primary zone protective relays, do not operate and clear the fault in their primary protection zone, backup relays located in the backup zone, must operate to isolate the fault, after providing sufficient time discrimination for the operation of the primary zone relays.
The protective relays must also be able to discriminate between faulted conditions, normal operating conditions and abnormal operating conditions and function only for the specific protection for which they are designed, without operating for any normal and short term acceptable abnormal events for which they are not intended to act and provide protection.
Relay and Release coordination study includes determining the size, ratings, characteristics and settings of over-current relays to ensure isolation of the system from being exposed to huge short circuit fault currents.
The study is focused to minimize the down-times, avoid equipment damage or failures, isolate faulty circuits from entire electrical network, and thus ensure safety of equipment (s) and personnel
