Modern electrical power systems need to be safe, reliable and efficient. At Cogent, we provide expertise in plant-wide electrical power system design, monitoring systems and power management solutions. We incorporate both client standards as well as international, national and local regulations so that systems comply with all regulatory and operational requirements. Our engineering team ensures that designs meet our client’s requirements for performance, reliability and maintainability.
> Power System Design
Cogent’s experience and expertise from the substation feed and covers plant standards, power distribution, medium and low voltage motor control centers, UPS (uninterruptible power supply), emergency generator, lighting, grounding, power factor correction to complete installation drawings Our designs unify electrical schematics and standards across the plant, minimizing spare parts and ensuring reliability and maintainability throughout.
> Power Efficiency Management
Cogent can integrate Corporate Energy Management (CEM)-ready systems into its designs and implement power management and quality monitoring solutions. By tracking energy consumption in real time, power consumption can be tracked and benchmarked against the production rate, enabling the operator to implement power reduction strategies to reduce operating costs.
> Power System Reliability
Power system reliability is a measure of the capability of electrical systems to withstand sudden disturbances or unanticipated power loss. Whether caused by natural disasters or man-made events, it is critical to maintaining operational safety if a power outage occurs. Cogent offers expertise in the improvement of power system protection and reliability. Our designs improve power availability and equipment up-time including lightning protection, surge protection, stand-by systems, emergency power and uninterruptible power supplies.
> Power System Studies & Arc Flash
A safe power system needs to be properly coordinated with upstream and downstream systems, limiting the incident energy of a potential arc flash. Cogent utilizes the latest software analysis tools to develop a complete single line diagram of the electrical system. All the recommended coordination values for breaker settings along and the record of incident energy available at electrical power components will be considered when determining required clothing and PPE requirements.
