The key to the success of a good power system design starts with a thorough understanding of the customer’s needs & design criterion.
Kice designs robust power distribution systems, with proper electrical specifications. We provide power one-line diagrams, panelboard schedules, and load flow analysis for all types of projects.
Well-designed power distribution systems are based on the following:
Safety – The number one goal is to design a power system which will avoid any electrical hazard.
Codes – The National Electric Code (N.E.C.) and local electrical codes provide minimum standards and requirements for safe electrical design, wiring methods, and materials. A good design engineer must be familiar with the code requirements as well as the customer’s facility, process, and operating procedures; to design an optimal system.
Flexibility and Expandability – In many facilities electrical utilization loads can change. Consideration must be given for future expansion and/or increased load requirements.
Maximize Efficiency – Electrical efficiency can generally be maximized by designing systems that minimize the losses in conductors, transformers and utilization equipment. We must keep our customers informed of the pros & cons, to create a balanced system.
