SHORT CIRCUIT ANALYSIS

SHORT CIRCUIT & COORDINATION STUDIES

Can the breakers in your electrical system design withstand a fault at any given point? Will each breaker trip as close to the point of failure as possible? Are your breakers and fuses coordinated so that they trip in the right sequence to ensure uptime for as much of your equipment as possible? Our short circuit analysis services and coordination studies give you the answers to these questions and more, well before building your system, so that you can quickly correct any oversights on paper and not on the job where they will cost more time and money.

AVOIDING SURPRISES

STUDIES ENSURE UPTIME

Our short circuit and coordination studies start with an evaluation of the loads expected on an electrical system design. Then, we use electrical failure analysis to plot all of the breakers and fuses in the design to ensure that they trip in the right sequence to keep as much of your completed system up as possible.

  • Oversight by a power engineer ensures accuracy.
  • Modeling of the complete system on paper gets you eyes on any problems in the design phase, before expensive fixes are needed in the field.
  • Studies ensure safety and a more fault-tolerant system.

  • LIGHTING APPLICATIONS

    SUCCESS STORY

    SHEDDING LIGHT ON CANCER RESEARCH

    When a new 21-story research center was being constructed in New York City, Turtle & Hughes Lighting department put together one of its most complex packages ever. This included custom-designed lab bench lighting fixtures that work in conjunction with a daylight harvesting system and a shade control system. The system prevents light pollution at night, creating a controlled environment to conduct research so scientists could achieve a better understanding of the disease and how to manage it.

  • POWER DISTRIBUTION

    SUCCESS STORY

    POWERING THE FUTURE

    Hudson Yards is the largest development in New York City in almost 100 years; a self-contained neighborhood with residential, office and commercial buildings, shops, restaurants, a creative hub, parks, playgrounds and a school. Two cogeneration plants — with switchgear from Turtle & Hughes — form a smart microgrid, which is designed to keep the complex running, even in the event a power outage.

  • PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    SUCCESS STORY

    DRINK UP, NEW YORK

    When it opened in 2013, the Catskill-Delaware Ultraviolet Disinfection facility became the world’s largest UV water treatment facility, covering two billion gallons of drinking water and adding a layer of protection for more than nine million New York residents. Turtle & Hughes consulted on the project prior to construction, provided project management and equipment during the construction, and continues to offer technical support today.
