Power & Energy

Power system engineering is the technical discipline applied to designing the electric power system for high power, electric utility applications as well as industrial and commercial power distribution systems. Power management is the engineering aspect of managing the electric loads such that available power sources are not overloaded and power is allocated to the different loads such that the loads are receiving a proper allocation of power.

Exponent engineers and scientists are familiar with power engineering principles and have tools for analysis of power systems of all sizes. Such analytical work is often needed to understand equipment failures, malfunction of protective relaying devices, and to estimate the energy to which a person is exposed when subjected to an arc flash. Our engineers are also well versed in power management aspects of computer systems and has performed design audits of computer systems as a service to the suppliers of computer systems.
