Power Quality Audit
All electrical devices work properly without any failure, if input power is well within set limits of electrical properties. So, Power Quality Study determines the health of the electrical to load ends. Without the proper power, an electrical device (or load) may malfunction, fail prematurely or not operate at all. There are many ways in which electric power can be of poor quality and many more causes of such poor-quality power. Elegrow Technology can help you in assessing the Power Quality issued faced by the clients in the Industry for.

Earthing System Health Assessment
Earthing is used to protect you from an electric shock. It does this by providing a path (a protective conductor) for a fault current to flow to earth. It also causes the protective device (either a circuit-breaker or fuse) to switch off the electric current to the circuit that has the fault. Elegrow Technology can help you in
Verify if a sufficiently low impedance is available to facilitate satisfactory protection operation under fault conditions.
Verify if a protection of personal and equipment in the vicinity of the electrical equipment are not being exposed to unsafe potentials under steady state or fault conditions.
Verify that system voltages are within reasonable limits under fault conditions and to verify that insulation breakdown voltages are not exceeded. Key Applicable Standards for Earthing Health Assessment

Partial Discharge Testing
Partial discharges (PD) are small electrical sparks that occur within the insulation of medium and high voltage electrical assets. Each discrete partial discharge is the result of an electrical breakdown of an air pocket within the insulation. These discharges erode insulation and eventually result in insulation failure. Elegrow Technology Partial Discharge Testing can help predict future performance and reliability of critical assets, including:
Cables, splices, and terminations
Power transformers and bushings
Motors and generators Key Applicable Standards for Partial Discharge Testing
