Electrical Specialisation Services
Protection & control:
Substation protection requires a holistic and complete approach. Proconics has the skills and experience to ensure that your substation will be protected and control functionality operates as required. This includes full automation and SCADA services, relay, RTU and SCADA network design and wireless and network system design for remote locations ensuring that both centralised and local operations work and integrate seamlessly.
Protection relay grading:
To ensure that your equipment is protected and safe during operation requires that the protection relays be fit for purpose. To that end Proconics does complete grading studies from feeder to end device. We will program and configure all major types of protection relays and ensure correct operation.
System steady state & stability studies:
Planning and optimisation of reticulation and switching schemes is critically important in ensuring that the best cost optimised solution is implemented in a safe and efficient manner. Proconics does systems studies and modelling, dynamic and static motor starting and stability studies. Proconics owns both ETAP and Digsilent software modelling packages.
Energy consumption is a significant cost component in industrial plants. Knowing what equipment is responsible for what portion of consumption and optimising and managing this consumption can improve bottom-line performance and reduce the environmental footprint of your plant.
Legacy switchgear replacement:
Our qualified engineers and technicians have extensive experience replacing and upgrading switchgear equipment in the petro-chemical industry. We have successfully executed a number of 525V and 6600V replacement projects over the last few years. Updated switchgear equipment promises:
> Improved reliability
> Long term availability of replacement parts
> Increased operator safety
> Improved protection of downstream equipment > Decreased probability of unscheduled process outages
> Reduction in schedule maintenance
