Title: Arc Flush Study for the Installation of Permanent Power in TRO facility
Type: Electrical, Instrumentation & Control Engineering Design
Year Completed: 2014
Location: Northern Alberta
Scope of Work: To conduct an arc flash study for the installation of permanent power to an Oil & Gas Tailings Reduction Operations (TRO) facility which encompasses the circuit breaker at switchgear and all downstream equipment including MFT drying and MPSU polymer system. This study provided protection settings for new protection relays and arc flash levels of downstream buses. In addition, harmonic information for existing VFDs in MFT drying package were analyzed and documented
The main purpose of this study was to determine the effects of permanent power supply to the Tailings Reduction Operations (TRO) System 6. This study examined the short circuit, harmonic, protective device coordination and arc flash energy levels for the System equipment. The results of this study have been utilized to determine the protection settings and arc flash hazard data for use during installation and commissioning of this facility.
