Our team of engineers analyzes every system to determine the design of the protection and control equipment needed to sufficiently protect it. This typically involves the use of microprocessor relays. Our protection and control capabilities include 1-lines, 3-lines, AC/DC Schematics, Wiring Diagrams, Panel Front Views, and Termination Cabinets.
We have the capability to design the communication network that connects the relays from one substation to another. Some of our communications capabilities include Fiber Routing, Power Line Carrier Communications (PLC), Audio Tone (Leased Line), WIMAX (5-7 miles), and JMUX/IMUX.
Not only do we have a team of internal project managers, but we also offer the same level of service for external project management. Our project management service offers site walk-downs, document management, bills of materials, circuit schedules, conduit schedules, livening procedures, independent design reviews, QA/QC processes, and calculations (battery calculations, station services, and voltage drops).
We perform calculations during the design phase, and it includes voltage drop, battery/charger calculations, DC panel, AC panel, and AC station service.
We employ our design and engineering methods to upgrade transit station infrastructures that have grown obsolete, including multiple CTA stations around Chicago.
Amped I can also provide civil & structural design services for substation and distribution center projects, among others.
We monitor equipment in a network center including network protectors, transformers, vacuum switches utilizing wire technology via relaying, and primary cable sensors or fiber optics. We also assist with installation techniques and commissioning of equipment, as well as site set-up for data collection from individual network centers.
