Protection and Controls Engineering
Protection & Controls Engineering, Design, and Consulting Services
Electric Power Utilities continue to invest in their electrical facilities to support reliability initiatives and modernization. Protection and Controls Engineering supports the introduction of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and system wide load growth within an aging infrastructure.
ControlPoint Technologies’ team of Protection and Controls Engineers includes Principal Engineers, Designers, and Consultants to provide the engineering needed to support P&C relay upgrades and expansion projects. Following our initial field visit, our team will review the existing drawings and documentation to develop the design packages necessary for construction. The Issued for Construction (IFC) Package will include the One Line Metering and Relay Diagrams, Three Line Diagrams, and Control Schematic Drawings, Relay and Control Enclosures, Wiring Drawings, Cable and Conduit Schedules, Communications Network Drawings and Material Lists.
Relay Replacement Programs will be supported by our Senior Project Managers to facilitate project schedules, drawing transmittals, review cycles, and progress reporting to all utility stakeholders. Project Managers work closely with our Technical Lead Engineers to develop a detailed project plan that will support project budget, schedule, safety, and quality requirements.
