Electrical Studies

Electrical engineers that support generating stations and large industrial facilities will periodically need to complete studies that address operational considerations and design issues for betterment projects. This chapter covers the theoretical basics for power system analysis and provides examples for voltage, power transfer, and short circuit studies.

When performing electrical studies, a good starting point is to find out the short circuit duty at the source. In the case of a generating station, the source would be the high voltage switchyard associated with the particular plant, and subsequent calculations would start from that location. Short circuit duty can be expressed as current (amps), impedance ...
