Overvoltage, overload, loss of power to a process, deterioration of distribution equipment or generators; these are all electrical incidents which sometimes occur in facilities or on electricity grids.

Although they may sometimes have critical repercussions (loss of production, fire, etc.), it is often difficult to understand these incidents because they are likely to call into play complex phenomena, sometimes in a combined manner (harmonics, resonances, protection selectivity or stability problems, etc.).

Service principle:
CAPSIM assists you in identifying and understanding the origin of incidents occurring at your facility. This consultancy is based on use of modelling tools as well as its experience and knowledge in the electrotechnical domain. In addition, CAPSIM will point you in the most relevant direction to find curative and preventative solutions.

CAPSIM is able to analyze a large range of phenomena which arise during an electricity grid problem or a system problem: Inadvertent opening of a circuit breaker, non-detection of a fault, degradation of a potential transformer, pulsating torque phenomenon on an electrical machine, pumping phenomenon within a regulation device, etc.
