Installation & Commissioning / Field Testing
Soil Resistivity Measurements
SK Solutions will provide measurements required for designing a grounding grid system for substations and other electrical systems.
Ground Grid to Earth Resistance Measurements
We will provide the measurements necessary to verify the ground grid earth resistance meets or exceeds specific design criteria.
Stray Voltage Measurements in Cow Contact Areas
Stray voltage electrical investigations identify stray voltages of concern relative to dairy operations. Stray voltage testing results are provided in a report. HV testing for leakages elimination in the cables.
Field Inspection / Line Inventories / Record and Data Collection
SK Solutions will obtain and document overhead and underground distribution line inventories on your electrical system.
GPS Location of Equipment, Poles, and Distribution Lines
Our staff can create GPS locations of electrical equipment and integrate this information with a GIS map to be used for design purposes.
RUS/CFC Inspection of Distribution Lines
Our experienced personnel will perform annual inspections of underground and overhead lines to verify they conform with applicable RUS and CFC codes and standards. Upon completion of construction work orders, line inspections are completed as required for RUS compliance.
Pad-Mounted Equipment and Pole Inspections
Pad-mounted electrical equipment inspections verify equipment is in proper working order and installations meets codes and design standards. Utilizing the hammer/sound/visual test, we inspect poles two feet below grade for rot. We visually inspect poles above grade for deterioration from birds, insects, lightning, weather, etc. and issue a report for each pole inspected.
On-Site Construction Supervision
On an as-needed basis, our staff will provide on-site construction supervision to address construction issues and to verify installations are completed in accordance with the plans and specifications.
Checking of mechanical mounting of the equipment’s. Checking of loose connections, checking for evidence of tightening and marking. All cable tightening at all ends and marking of checking. All installations as per instruction manual and signoff. Phase sequence checking. etc.
Power Quality Measurements
You may have power quality concerns regarding sensitive electrical equipment installed on a distribution system. We can identify areas of concern, locate the cause, and recommend solutions to mitigate power quality concerns.
