  • Recloser programming and fuse coordination for distribution systems
  • Fuse-fuse coordination and troubleshooting
  • Coordination of power system protective devices with utility system protection and impedance data
  • System Troubleshooting and Power Quality Investigations
  • Inspect grounding and lightning protection for substations and electrical facilities
  • Harmonic Distortion– troubleshoot, investigate and propose solutions
  • Failure and down time investigations
  • Power system field inspections and maintenance recommendations

Project Management

Projects often involve many parties and many areas of expertise. Lythix can assist in the project management role while also bringing knowledge of new technologies to your operations. Power Planning – Accurate power demand and system capacity planning can save a company millions of dollars long term. Poorly designed distribution systems cause outages that disrupt production for hours or days. Downtime is a revenue destroyer. We will review your existing systems, analyze your future demand need and make recommendations for existing system upgrades and future system expansion options. We can also help coordinate and communicate that load growth with the utilities to ensure their systems are also upgraded to meet your demand needs. Power Planning services include: Time demands on customers are high, let us help you decrease the burden by managing your project through to completion. We can manage everything from design, finding the right contractors, following construction, including cost tracking and final completion analysis. Here is a short list of project management areas of focus:

  •  Load Forecasting
  •  Long Term System Capacity Review
  •  Utility Coordination Assistance
  •  Load (HP) review (New and Existing)
  •  Drilling Plan Integration
  •  SOW (Scope of Work)
  •  Construction Bid Process (Normal / Virtual)  Line Construction Projects
