Power or load flow studies

We perform scenario simulations to determine the impact of new loads, generation and operation modes in an electrical system. This evaluation allows us to take preventive actions and determine possible required investments.

In order to perform the Arc flash study, it is necessary to have previously performed the short circuit study. In turn, for the coordination of protections it is necessary to know the short circuit level.

Short circuit study

We perform three-phase fault simulations, line to ground fault, line to line fault and line to line to ground fault. This allows us to know the short circuit currents at each point of the system, for half-cycle and 5-cycle asymmetrical currents, as well as initial and steady-state symmetrical currents.

Protection coordination study

When starting an installation it is necessary to perform a short-circuit evaluation to know the capacities of the equipment to be installed. In addition to determine the fuses and thermomagnetic switches required for proper operation.

Arc Flash Study

This risk assessment analysis complements the scopes of the Protection Coordination Study. It evaluates the conditions of the power plant according to NFPA 70E-2018 standards.

What does this study do?

This study analyzes the behavior of the installed circuits through a simulation performed with the help of specialized software.

CENACE requests these studies when carrying out load / production increases in a plant to know the flow of its electrical installation and to know if the current equipment is capable of producing and fully complying with the Grid Code. In addition to evaluate if it is necessary to change them or make modifications.


  • Assurance that your equipment installations will not fail.
  • Detect and replace possible damaged cables or transformers.
  • Know the general behavior of your electrical system.
  • Complement your Power Quality studies.
  • Predict the behavior of your equipment in a simulation software.
  • We perform the evaluation according to the criteria of the Grid Code.
  • Avoid CENACE fines by being in compliance.
  • If you need energy saving equipment to meet regulatory requirements, we provide it.
  • We provide recommendations and best practices to maintain optimal operation.
  • By performing these studies we gather valuable information about your operation to support you quickly in case of any unforeseen future events.
