Power System Analysis and Technical Audits

We execute detailed electrical power system studies tailored to your needs, project scope and size, ranging from fault level and load flow to protection grading and transient stability. We utilise the latest industry-recognised software for advanced modelling and analysis of networks from LV up to and including 132kV.

Technical audits are another facet of our advisory services whereby we evaluate power sector organisations to ensure operating activities are being managed and performed properly, and that control mechanisms are in place to sufficiently mitigate risk. This work can be carried out under fixed contracts or terms of framework type arrangements.

Design Services

Our specialist engineers have diverse experience of designing and delivering power engineering solutions from concept through to detailed design. Our designers have worked on a broad range of power projects up to 132kV in the UK and 330kV internationally, on battery storage, wind, EfW, solar, STOR, traditional thermal (coal, gas or nuclear) and load projects.

We have a strong track record of working directly for many of the DNOs and IDNOs across the UK. Many of our senior consultants are from a DNO background, so we have the capabilities and hands-on experience to support you in an owner’s engineer role as well as in asset management and network design. We have advised clients in becoming an IDNO, undertaken operations training, completed competency assessments, and reviewed their operational and design standards.

Advisory Services

In advising utilities, we recognise that customer expectations are rising as economies mature, that in the future the success of an electricity utility will increasingly be judged by its responsiveness to customers’ needs and, when problems arise, that the ‘physical’ fault is rapidly addressed and customers’ complaints are dealt with in a sensitive, appropriate manner.

In our advisory practice we have a group of consultants who provide technical, operational and management advice and services to governments and government agencies, regulators, actual and potential investors, as well as to those responsible for leading, managing and operating power sector business. Our team has experience of managing power projects funded by NGOs – including ADB, World Bank, DfID and UNDP.
