We have a team of specialists across South East Asia to support your project from design and throughout the owner’s installation and commissioning. Additionally, Eaton’s Electrical Services and Systems group will be available to support the owner’s electrical system for the life of the facility.
During the design process, Eaton believes alternate electrical design approaches should be considered that best fit the below overall goals.
The number one goal is to design a power system that will not present any electrical hazard to the people who use the facility, and/or the utilization equipment fed from the electrical system. It is also important to design a system that is inherently safe for the people who are responsible for electrical equipment maintenance and upkeep.
Minimum Initial Investment
The owner’s overall budget for first cost purchase and installation of the electrical distribution system and electrical utilization equipment will be a key factor in determining which of various alternate system designs are to be selected. When trying to minimize initial investment for electrical equipment, consideration should be given to the cost of installation, floor space requirements and possible extra cooling requirements as well as the initial purchase price.
Maximum Service Continuity
The degree of service continuity and reliability needed will vary depending on the type and use of the facility as well as the loads or processes being supplied by the electrical distribution system. For example, for a smaller commercial office building, a power outage of considerable time, say several hours, may be acceptable, whereas in a larger commercial building or industrial plant only a few minutes may be acceptable. In other facilities such as hospitals, many critical loads permit a maximum of 10 seconds outage and certain loads, such as real-time computers, cannot tolerate a loss of power for even a few cycles.
Maximum Flexibility and Expandability
In many industrial manufacturing plants, electrical loads are periodically relocated or changed requiring changes in the electrical distribution system. The layout and design of the electrical distribution system that are to accommodate these changes must be considered. In addition, consideration must be given to future building expansion, and/or increased load requirements due to added utilization equipment when designing the electrical distribution system. In many cases considering transformers with increased capacity or fan cooling to serve unexpected loads as well as additional protective devices and/ or provision for future addition of these devices may be desirable. Also to be considered is increasing appropriate circuit capacities or quantities for future growth.
Power monitoring communication systems connected to electronic metering can provide the trending and historical data necessary for future capacity growth.
