IDCS is proficient at performing all manner of electrical system studies, including: Arc Flash, Load Flow, Short Circuit, and Equipment Evaluations. IDCS provides plan review and site survey services to determine the input data required for the study. Once surveyed and verified, IDCS will provide the appropriate analysis of the data and suggest ways to optimize the distribution system for most advantageous performance. We will provide Arc Flash label design and locations, equipment evaluation and modification suggestions, and optimized protective relay settings.
IDCS was a sub-consultant on the City of Evanston Water Utility electrical hazard assessment. The project included the assessment of the entire water treatment facility, and furnishing the required field markings (labels) for the electrical distribution equipment.
MWRDGC initiated a project for the replacement of a portion of the 1920’s Westside Treatment Plant at the Stickney WRP with new Aerated Grit Facilities and Primary Settling Tanks.
IDCS was selected to participate as a sub-consultant to Greeley & Hansen for the project to add ultraviolet disinfection facilities to the Terrence J. O’Brien (North Side) Water Reclamation Plant.
IDCS worked as a sub-consultant to SpecPro for power studies for an Air Force base located in Minot North Dakota. Utilizing SKM software IDCS completed a short circuit study which included over 300 bus points from the incoming service entrance to the panelboard distribution level.
Tyndall AFB Medical Center is a 50,000 square foot building contained over 70 distribution panels in various stages of life, as well as 30 transformers. The scope of this project was to update and eliminate panels and transformers where possible and create a new efficient electrical distribution system.
