Highlighted work included; short circuit, protective device and arc flash study for proposed campus electrical service replacement, 22.9 kV and 4160 V normal power systems, 2500 kVA of parallel generation, generator protection, GE Multilin 350 & 489 relays, generator/bus/transformer differential protection, CT saturation calculations, short circuit analysis, protective device coordination, equipment evaluation, device settings, arc flash evaluation, and one-line drawings.

Further work included analysis of site lighting systems for compliance with SUCF requirements, photometric site plans, and recommendations for improvements.

The project is in progress with Campus and SUCF currently reviewing the Assessment Reports and Survey Mapping.  Recommendation and cost estimates will follow the assessments along with the completion of an Implementation Plan that Campus can utilize for planning and budgeting of priority projects.
