What is Short Circuit Analysis, and Why is it Done?

Published by Carelabs (Carelabz), Website: carelabz.com A Short circuit analysis is used to determine the magnitude of short circuit current, the system is capable of producing, and compares that magnitude with the interrupting rating of the overcurrent protective devices (OCPD). Since the interrupting ratings are based by the standards, the methods used in conducting a short circuitContinue reading “What is Short Circuit Analysis, and Why is it Done?”
