Planning and Studies

EEC employees put their vast experience in planning and system modeling to work by developing feasibility, systems impact, and facility studies. We help organizations with long-range plans, construction work plans, capital-cost estimates, rate proposals, and environmental reports. Our system analysis studies include stability, coordination, complete utility system sectionalizing, load flow, short circuit, voltage drop, motor starting, arc-flash hazards and mitigation, and grounding. We use PSSE, WindMil, ASPEN, and SKM for these plans and studies.
