Electrical Failures and Incidents
Electrical system failures can have far-reaching effects and cause serious damage, resulting in fires, power outages, equipment failures, and injury. Regardless of size, our experienced engineers have analyzed failures ranging from minor service interruptions on just a few systems to large equipment failure investigations to an outage affecting an entire region of the country.
Our electrical engineers have a multi-disciplinary team at their disposal to assist with any type of matter. With vast backgrounds, our teams are equipped to provide quick answers on failures related to:
- Power generation equipment
- Electrical control systems
- Circuit breakers/switchgear
- Industrial, Commercial, Manufacturing Equipment
Electrical Engineering Experts
The expertise needed to uncover and evaluate facts related to the cause of electrical failures and accidents is highly specialized. Dependent upon the size of the matter, many lands in litigation. Our experts are skilled at scene and evidence preservation and can assist with subrogation opportunities, determining potential liability and expert testimony.
Electrical and Electronic Analysis
Following incidents, our electrical experts help determine the cause or causes of the failure or failed components by utilizing, but not limited to:
- Multi-meter testing
- Computerized Tomography (CT) Scans
- Emission Microscopy: Near Infrared (EMMI)
- Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
- Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR)
