Power System Engineering

Power system analysis is the core expertise at POWER-tek.  POWER-tek has close to two decades successful business history of delivering solutions in power systems engineering area.  This work includes power transmission, distribution and industrial systems.


Transmission System Planning Studies

POWER-tek performs a forward-looking assessment of transmission requirements, taking into account present industry structure, indicative generation development, demand expectations and future uncertainties. In addition to detailed studies using the analytical techniques above, we develop planning methodologies, reliability criteria, perform economic assessments and review regulatory impacts.

Wind Plant Connection Impact Studies

Wind power is the fastest growing source of new electric power generation in the world. The cost of energy from large commercial wind plants in good wind sites is now competitive with that from more conventional sources, and costs are forecast to decline further with future generations of multi-MW turbines.

Transfer Capability Analysis

The transmission provider or regional transmission operator (RTO) may require an assessment of the impact of the proposed generator on the transfer capability of the network. Transfer capability is a measure of the transmission system's ability to transfer power across constrained interfaces. It is the basis for allocating transmission use for wheeling and inter-area exchanges. The required analysis is similar to a combination of steady state and stability assessments, with an additional analysis for shifting dispatches. POWER-tek can provide clients with transfer capability analysis that they may need for technical regulatory compliance with their RTO.


System Performance Analysis

The key to power system planning and operation is to study the system's performance to find opportunities for improvement. POWER-tek has conducted planning and operations analysis for interconnected and isolated systems for clients ranging from large electric utilities to independent power producers and industrial plant owners.

Motor Starting - Voltage Analysis

The motor starting function helps users understand the impact of machine start-ups on the network. POWER-tek provides services for calculating voltage and currents in the network when single or multiple motors are started in the system.


End-Use Studies

POWER-tek houses engineers with substantial experience with end-use power quality, and were major contributors to some of the ground-breaking power quality activities. Our analysis and modeling capability can be a critical tool in diagnosing and resolving many electrical problems on the customer side of the meter.
