What is an electrical fault?

In an electric power system, a fault or fault current is any abnormal electric current. For example, a short circuit is a fault in which a live wire touches a neutral or ground wire.

How can you test for potential electrical faults?

There are many ways to spot Electrical Faults, but is there a way to identify one before it happens?  C3 Engineering has a highly skilled workforce of electrical analysis professionals that can do just that!  An analysis is a critical part of any system evaluation and allows for effective protective equipment selection, reliability analysis and power system planning. It involves determining fault current in short-circuit and ground faults. We have the skills, experience and software to do effective analysis.

Don’t wait for something bad to happen before you act!

An electrical fault can halt production, damage critical assets, or even worse cause harm to an individual or workforce.  They often cause fires, damage equipment and cause injuries or death. If the electrical fault current exceeds the interrupting rating of the protective device, the consequences can be devastating.  Let C3 Engineering help your company stay on top of it’s electrical infrastructure with a Fault Analysis inspection today!
