M2EC specialises in consulting and calculations about electrical power systems for high-profile companies and individuals.
The planning, design and operation of industrial power systems require engineering studies to evaluate existing and propose system performance, reliability, safety and economics. Studies are the most efficient way to prevent unexpected failures, to lower costs, and to optimise equipment selection. During the design phase of a new system, the studies foresee the future conditions of a power systems, allowing to avoid potential deficiencies. In existing systems, studies locate the cause of failures and indicate corrective measures.
We propose ourselves as a specialist service for electrical power system studies, primarily focused on (but not limited to) the following studies:
All the studies will be carried out in compliance with the main standards: IEC, IEEE, ANSI, CEI.
Since the complexity of modern power systems imposes the use of digital computers with proper simulation software to carry out the required studies, M2EC mostly uses the professional software named NEPLAN® (see www.neplan.ch for more information). NEPLAN® is composed by many modules and performs the following calculations:
|> Load Flow
||> Load Flow with Load Profiles
||> Contingency Analysis
|> Optimal Power Flow
||> Short Circuit
||> Harmonic Analysis
|> Motor Starting
||> Voltage Stability
||> Small Signal Stability
|> Dynamic Analysis
||> Network Reduction
|> Overcurrent Protection
||> Distance Protection
Concerning the electromagnetical transients, M2EC uses the well-known and referenced ATP (Alternative Transient Program - see www.eeug.org for details), which is a universal program system for digital simulation of transient phenomena of electromagnetic as well as electromechanical nature. With this digital program, complex networks and control systems of arbitrary structure can be simulated.
Other calculations required by our studies are performed using our proprietary software tools. Based on our professional engineering knowledge and experience, our tools have been developed with accurancy, reliability and in compliance with international standards.
