Grounding of electrical equipment protects your personnel and equipment from over-voltages, faults, and lightning. It ensures system voltage stability by providing a solid reference to earth. Grounding also establishes a reference to control electrical noise that can interfere with proper operation of your electrical equipment. Periodic testing to verify grounding system integrity is essential for safeguarding your operations and overall business.
Most electrical equipment generates heat during normal operations. Usually, this heat is safely dissipated on its own. However, problems can develop when components generate excessive heat due to corrosion, loose connections, or overload. Infrared (IR) inspections identify these abnormal thermal rises in electrical and mechanical equipment before they cause an unplanned outage.
In its 30-plus year lifespan, a protective relay may only need to operate for a fraction of a second. But when it's needed, it has to perform. Servicing protective relays per manufacturer and NETA recommendations ensures they work properly to prevent injury or extensive damage to your plant during an electrical distribution abnormality.
Plant turnarounds constitute your single largest maintenance expense. Part of ensuring a successful turnaround is controlling the time and cost associated with the outage, while making sure your assets get the service needed to continue performing safely and reliably. Smart Turnarounds and outage services can help you make the most of planned maintenance time.

An up-to-date arc flash study helps mitigate hazards of injury and death by calculating the limited and restricted approach boundaries inside which workers must use appropriate personal protective equipment.
If your facility is like most, equipment and loads are continually added or removed in small increments, constantly changing your electrical infrastructure. The impact of these changes is not always apparent until some part of the system becomes overloaded or exhibits other problems. Keeping your single-line diagram up to date provides a road map that enables proper protection and system reliability, and is necessary for NFPA 70E compliance.
A grounding system is one of the most important, yet neglected, segments of a critical facility’s electrical power system. Testing it is not only prudent, it is required by the National Electrical Code. Grounding studies ensure protection from low-level arcing ground faults that can destroy your switchgear in seconds and put personnel in danger. Vertiv’s grounding studies include the required tests and inspections needed to verify your system’s integrity.
Ensuring your power system is adequately designed to satisfy your performance criteria often requires engineering services like a load flow study. Load flow studies identify and correct power system issues, such as overloads, load imbalance, harmonic problems, poor power factor or other operational issues.
When an electrical failure happens, the results can be catastrophic. Most electrical failures occur because of insulation breakdown due to small electrical sparks known as partial discharge. Vertiv’s partial discharge (PD) testing and monitoring provide early warning of impending failure. Through data collection and analysis you are able to make strategic decisions about repairing or replacing your electrical equipment.
Partial discharge (PD) testing provides critical information about the quality of cable insulation and its impact on your critical facility. If your medium- and high-voltage cable system has voids, gaps, or other defects, it’s vulnerable to PD. Left unchecked, these small electrical sparks can erode the insulation, eventually leading to unplanned outages. PD testing for cables helps you prioritize your maintenance resources and repair or replace cables before this failure occurs.
Partial discharge (PD) testing provides critical information about the quality of switchgear and its impact on your critical facility. Your medium-voltage switchgear is vulnerable to PD if it has voids, gaps, or other defects. PD can also occur on the surface of insulators. Left unchecked, these small electrical sparks erode insulation and lead to unplanned outages. PD testing for switchgear helps you prioritize maintenance resources and take action before this failure occurs.
Partial discharge (PD) testing plays a critical role in the health of your electrical assets. But some equipment is hard to access or unsafe to open while energized, making testing a challenge. With permanently mounted sensors, it’s possible to conduct online partial discharge (OLPD) testing without exposing workers to danger or shutting down your critical facility. Testing is safer and more efficient, and you get the critical information you need to optimize your electrical assets.
Power factor is the ratio of capacitive current to resistive current within your operations. Measuring power factor is an effective way to detect insulation defects in electrical equipment. By maintaining a high power factor, your plant can avoid costly utility bills resulting from an enforced “low” power-factor clause or high kilovolt-ampere (kVA) demand. With a power factor study, you’ll know how to improve your power factor in support of operational goals.
Dips, spikes, surges, and momentary outages can damage your critical equipment and systems, or cause them to malfunction. Not only do these outages cost you money, but they may be creating unsafe conditions or other serious problems for your critical facility. A power quality study and harmonic analysis helps ensure smooth, reliable electrical energy identifying the source and nature of these disturbances.
Risk analysis and reliability studies are essential tools for the design of power systems within critical, continuous-process facilities. Power system reliability studies provide the information necessary to upgrade and maintain your power delivery infrastructure. The results of the studies focus on reducing operating costs, improving efficiency, increasing reliability, and improving system maintainability.
In the event of a fault, protective relays safeguard electrical systems, equipment, and people. Replacing aging electromechanical (EM) relays with digital ones is fast, cost-effective, and delivers a host of benefits if designed and integrated properly. Reaping the full benefits of digital relay technology requires time and skill to appropriately design and integrate.
Every time you expand, reconfigure, add a load, or upgrade your electrical distribution system, you challenge its reliability. Short circuit and coordination studies help manage these complexities by ensuring protective devices are properly set and coordinated to quickly isolate a failure. These studies give you a better understanding of current electrical distribution system operation, along with information you need to improve protection for equipment, personnel, and your business as a whole.
