  • Managed small teams to complete services under strict time constraints.
  • Provided emergency support to customers when issues with variable frequency drives, protective relays, circuit breakers, and capacitor banks arise.
  • Acted as Liason between customers and their local distibution companies for SaveOnEnergy Incentives.

Example Projects: Co-Generator Commissioning, Annual Maintenance

Power System Analysis:

  • Utilized Paladin Designbase software (formerly EDSA) to conduct Short Circuit Calculations, Arc Flash Hazard Analysis, Protective Device Coordination and Load Flow Analysis.
  • Provided thorough reports and recommendations for the analysis performed.

Design and Build Projects: 

  • Designed various drive systems for specific applications.
    ˆ
    Created panel layouts and schematics using AutoCAD Electrical.
  • Selected and procured parts such as VFDs, transformers, circuit breakers, fuses, relays, power supplies, PLCs, etc.
  • Managed and assisted with the panel build - Mounting and wiring power supplies, transducers, terminal blocks, relays, etc. and ordering additional partsManaged and contributed to the on-site system integration - For Larger systems, connected the various cabinets electrically and running power feeds from the facility's power distribution.
  • Commissioned the system after fi nal setup - Verifying that all protection is working properly and testing the system to verify proper operation.
  • Reviewing the systems with inspectors for both Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PSR or PSHSR) as well as field evaluation for electrical safety.
  • Provided Emergency onsite troubleshooting  for various Automation/Drive issues.
