The key to operating with reliable equipment is to conduct failure-proof studies and trace action plans in order to meet national and international safety standards.

It is important to correctly dimension all the components of the electrical system, such as switches, fuses, cables, etc. We do this so that in the event of a fault, it does not cause damage to the equipment that could cause a greater loss.
To do this, first, the maximum value of the current and its behavior during the first fault cycle and several cycles later is calculated. This allows us to determine the value of the current to be interrupted and to know the stress to which the equipment is subjected to during the time of the incident.
In Mexico, the Mexican Official Standard NOM-001-SEDE-2012 (article 110-16) and in the United States the NEC (NFPA70), require electrical equipment (such as distribution boards, industrial control panels, meter enclosures, and motor control centers that needs inspection, adjustment, repair, or maintenance while energized) to be properly marked in order to warn qualified personnel of the Potential Arc Flash Hazard.
The objective of an Arc Flash Potential Hazard Analysis Study is to determine the power level at each of the electrical panels where maintenance is applied. The intention is to define the safe working distances according to the voltage, hazard category, and the personal protective equipment to be used by the worker when performing maintenance on a given electrical panel.
With the study of Arc Flash and the adequate dimensioning of the protection equipment, as well as a correct training of the personnel, it is possible to avoid accidents and ensure the workers' safety.
Properly coordinating the protective devices of an electrical system can minimize the impact of a production shutdown. Having a proper study with its settings in place allows you to shut down only the equipment where the incident occurred.
The function of protective devices is to detect the malfunctioning conditions and isolate the problem as quickly as possible.
Nowadays, process equipment requires a clean and reliable supply.
In CEBSA we analyze your electrical system conditions in order to optimize its reliability.
The parameters analyzed include voltage regulation, SAGS, SWELLS, flickers, unbalances, starting currents, among others.
The Grid Code is the main reliability instrument issued by the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE). It corresponds to the general administrative provisions that establish the criteria for efficiency, quality, reliability, continuity, safety, and sustainability of the National Electric System (SEN), according to Article 12, section XXXVII of the Electricity Industry Law.
In general terms, the technical requirements to be met in the grid code are:
A proper grounding system helps the electrical system to operate continuously. Incorrect grounding installations can cause damage or malfunction, especially in solid-state equipment.
They can also cause burns, electric shocks, or electrocutions to people.
The objectives of grounding an electrical system or intentionally connecting a phase or neutral conductor to ground are to stabilize the ground voltage and provide a path for the deficient current to flow. This allows the protection devices to operate towards the solution.
The correct design of a lightning protection system must comply with the indications of the applicable national and international standards, including NOM-022-STPS-2008, NOM-001-SEDE-2012, and NFPA-780.
The lightning protection system must always be installed above the highest part of the building or structure to be protected, and will be responsible for capturing and safely channeling the lightning discharge to ground, thus protecting people and buildings.
The lightning protection systems are composed of a lightning rod tip, a connection coupler, a grounding electrode, and an organic component that helps to better dissipate the discharge.
