Short Circuit Study

Short Circuit Study Services

A short circuit is a term used to describe electricity that flows in a path that is unintended – one of lower resistance. There are a number of reasons why short circuits happen.

This includes two phases contacting each other, two points of different voltages coming into contact, and unintended connections to ground. Short circuits can be dangerous. They can cause rapid and large energy releases in the form of heat, intense magnetic fields which is why carrying out a short circuit study is so important. 

The Importance of a Short Circuit Studies

  • No matter how effectively electric systems have been designed, there is no denying that they can experience short circuits from time-to-time. This can cause currents that are abnormally high. At Mangan PDG, we provide short circuit study services to help you get to the bottom of any issues.  
  • We will isolate faults at any given location in a safe manner through the use of overcurrent protection devices, such as fuses and circuit breakers. This will result in minimal equipment and circuit damage, as well as minimal disruption to the operation of your plant.
