Systems for Detecting Faults In Underground Cable Systems Must be Powerful and Cost Effective

Joseph Coupal - Friday, February 16, 2018
ElecComm underground high voltage cable installation in Boston, MA

As underground cable systems become more widespread, a less invasive fault detection process is imperative. Once underground high voltage cable systems are in place, excavation of the entire cable system to locate faults and subsequent repair is not economically sound. Moreover, digging the whole length of the fault section increases the risk of accidents and damage to cables and surrounding properties. Time domain reflectometry provides the most accurate location of defects in underground cable systems.

Using pulses of radio frequency transmitted through the affected cable, a time domain reflectometer, also known as TDR, has an integrated timer that measures the frequency travel along the wire and records the time until the frequency is reflected back. Using a set of standards values for materials at various lengths, a disparity in the cable can be accurately pinpointed based on time. Any disparity in an underground high voltage cable installation in Wilmington, MA, means a change in impedance. Wire impedance tells the wire’s ability to transit pulses, thus a change in impedance translates to a change in recorded time.

ElecComm service personnel are equipped with the necessary skills in the operation and data analysis of TDRs for a cost-effective maintenance and repair of underground cabling system. ElecComm fully grasps the critical nature of underground cables in electrical systems and is committed in ensuring the continuous electrical power that is essential in business operations and productivity.

Business Power Outage Tips

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 08, 2018
ElecComm Power Line Response, Boston, MA

Power outages due to stormy weather, other natural disaster or technical malfunctions in power system can disrupt any commercial or business operations. Loss of electricity in company buildings and business establishments means no lights or power to run electrical equipment which is critical in business procedures. It’s important to be prepared for power outages and to have power restored as soon as possible to ensure business continuity. Here are preparations to lessen the impact of power failure to business operations and ensure the safety of customers and employees:

Business Outage Alerts - Get potential power outage notifications in order to be informed ahead of time before loss of electricity takes place.

Emergency Hotlines - Make sure you have a copy of your utility company’s emergency hotline to report any outage or outage-related issues right away.

Business Continuity Plan - Formulate a business continuity plan with employees concerning disruption of service due to power failure. Assign an emergency team of employees and start emergency drills and trainings for all company workers.

Back Up Power - Most companies invest on generators especially those that have delicate equipment. When operating the generator always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Place and operate generators outside the building and as much as possible in a perfectly ventilated area. Gas generators produces carbon monoxide that can be harmful to those inside the building when fumes coming from generators are inhaled. Always use well-grounded extension cords when connecting the equipment directly to the generator.

Emergency Supplies - Keep emergency supplies accessible at all times. This includes flashlights and extra batteries, battery-powered radio, cellphone with charger and first aid kit.

Building Safety Standards - Building must have luminous exit signs to guide your employees or customers out from the establishment to a safer area in the event of emergency that requires evacuation. Also, there should be security alarms and fire-suppression system installed.

Reasons Behind Power Outages During Cold Weather

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 01, 2018
ElecComm - power line storm response in Boston, MA

The cold weather months are the most challenging times for power line support. Cases of loss of electricity increase during the winter since electric systems and older infrastructure are susceptible to extreme cold. Overtime, electric systems lose their capability to function well in extreme cold, especially since they are constantly overworked.

Moreover, energy consumption tend to increase during cold weather with round-the-clock use of heating systems by consumers. Thus, accurate load forecasting is critical to gauge the precise amount of energy needed to generate the higher demand during this time. Inaccurate weather forecasts can tend to cause large areas to experience power outages or rotating blackouts to cope with massive overloads.

Malfunction of the power system can be minimized by ensuring proper insulation of power plants to keep the reinforcement system running. Furthermore, adaptation of the new approach to short-term load forecasting contributes a lot in the distribution level. Lastly, it is highly recommended to replace old infrastructure before it begins to malfunction and cause more serious damage.

Quick Power Line Repair Storm Response Helps Companies Execute Business Continuity Plans

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 25, 2018
ElecComm - power line storm response in Boston, MA

Business continuity plans are part of the strategies that companies device to cope with disasters such as accidents and natural calamities. With the winter weather affecting businesses and people alike, proper implementation of these contingency plans is a top-most priority. Restoration of electric power is a major factor in disaster recovery efforts. When power is fully restored, operations can immediately return to normal. Therefore, a quick power line storm response for damaged and downed power lines is a big help in restoring business activities.

Since electric power is the backbone of modern industry, repairing downed power lines enables companies to gather emergency response personnel to assess the situation then do structural and equipment restoration in case of damages. The use of expensive fuel for prolonged use of generator systems will cause operational costs to skyrocket. Companies that use large data communication systems cannot rely solely on wireless cellular networks when communication cables that are tagged along the power lines are also downed. Communication lines have the bigger capacity to accommodate the huge demand in bandwidth of most companies. In short, a full restoration of utility power lines is needed to normalize company operations, and the community as a whole.

Companies like ElecCom that provide power line repair and maintenance in MA are ready to assist businesses recover by providing quick storm response services. ElecComm is proud to offer these services. Highly skilled linemen and engineers stand by 24/7 for repair to damaged power lines.

Slack Fiber Optic Cables Boost System Sustainability and Signal Quality

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 18, 2018
ElecComm - fiber optic splicing in MA

Fiber optic cables differ from ordinary copper wires in many ways. While copper wires can withstand considerable amount of wire tension, optical glass fibers are less flexible. Optical fibers have minimum bending radius. This is defined as the minimum curve radius that optical glass fibers can be safely bent before attenuation effects in the signal manifest or before breakage occurs. Because of this, telecommunication networks in Boston, MA are wired with specific techniques such as gentle pulling of fiber optic cables instead of pushing, separation of fiber optic cable ducts from electrical power circuits, and use of wide diameter cable supply reels.

The technique which is very evident in almost all telecommunication network design installations is called slack wiring. Slacks are characterized by loops of extra fiber optic cable spun around specialized fixtures across the cable route. Slack wire or excessive wire length is normally avoided in electrical power circuits, since extra wire will translate to higher costs. Aesthetically, excessive wire can also mean overcrowding in ducts and raceways. However the scenario is different in fiber optic cables, in fact slacks offer as much as twice the original wire paths intended, sometimes even more.

The longer the slack, the more sustainable and safe the fiber optic cable system is, because repeated fiber optic splicing during future reconfiguration will eventually shorten the cable which will lead to violations on the minimum bending radius. In some cases rewiring the entire fiber optic system is too expensive due to the high costs of fiber optic materials. This is why some utilities prefer to lengthen the cables purposefully to mitigate future splicing and wiring conditions. For more about fiber optic cable system installations contact ElecComm.

Underground High Voltage Cable Protection: A Point Of Paramount Importance

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 11, 2018
ElecComm Underground high voltage cable installation in Boston, MA

Along with the increase in the use of underground high voltage cable systems, is a growing concern for the cable’s protection as part of an expansive power system network. Underground cables are mostly safe from weather but various threats are still present even underground. Since these cables are not readily visible compared to overhead lines, the risk of damage from unwarranted excavation, electrical faults, and even accidents can happen. Damaged underground power cables can cause power outages to the same degree as overhead power line failures.

Underground high voltage cable installation in Boston, MA follows the power industry standards in terms of underground cable protection. Underground distribution switchgear and fuses are housed in grounded and air-insulated enclosures that keep them from vegetation, wildlife and humans. Underground cables are protected from water ingress, corrosion, and high levels of mechanical stress. Safety signs are placed above the ground where power cables are routed to warn impending construction and excavation nearby. In the event that the signs are damaged or covered, warning tape and protection mesh are also buried in the soil just above the lines to warn excavators.

ElecComm services guarantee complete protection of all underground high voltage cable systems. The underground cable installation teams are also adept in detection and repair of underground power line faults. ElecComm fully understands the important role of underground high voltage cable system protection for sustaining a stable and continuous supply of electric power.

Energized Power Line Repair Maintain Stability In Power Systems

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 04, 2018
Eleccom - Repair and Maintenance to overhead power lines in Wilmington, MA

Live line working also known as hotline repair, involves the most sophisticated methods in repair and maintenance to overhead power lines in Wilmington, MA. Repair and maintenance operations are performed without cutting off the power which is usually high voltage. While overhead electric power lines utilize high voltages, most objects including people are normally 0 potential or neutral. When neutral objects or objects at different potential, come close to or in direct contact with high potential points such as overhead power lines, large current or electrical arcing is generated. These currents can be debilitating because they can cause electrical fault to power systems and equipment or electrical shock when passed through the human body. The following hotline repair methods protect the linemen from perilous electrical arcing.

  1. Bare-hand or Hot Hand Method. Maintaining the same voltage between the power line and the tools and the human body performing the repair is a commonly used technique. A specialized suit is worn by linemen doing the repair. Workers are raised to the same voltage as the live line using a platform or helicopter. It is crucial that workers must be isolated from other objects with different potential in order not to cause any current to flow. As an effect, all grounded or earthed equipment must be removed. As the worker approaches the power line, small arcing is generated with the use of a conducting wand to electrically bond himself to the live line. At this point, the worker and the power line are at the same potential so the worker is safe from shock.
  2. Hot Stick Method. This method works under the principle that a minimum safe distance must be maintained between the worker and the live line to prevent the occurrence of electrical arcs. The hot stick maintains a safe gap between worker and the live line where surrounding air can sometimes become conductive. Essential repair tools are attached to the hot stick which is normally made up of insulator material providing safe repair work for linemen. However this method limits the linemen’s dexterity as tools are distanced from operating workers themselves.
  3. Hot Gloves. The lineman is protected by insulating gloves and performs the operation in direct contact with the live parts. Additional insulation may be added to protect the worker from exposure to an object at a different potential that may serve as a second point of contact aside from the gloves.

Hotline maintenance and repair is executed when there is a need for both continuous supply of electric power and critical repairs of high voltage conductors and insulators in vital installations such as substations. Moreover, it is also applied when connecting new service connections mostly in areas with rapid growth of electrical consumption. Performing a de-energized downed power line repair may take weeks. A service interruption may require curtailment in power generation which consequently cause instability in interconnected power systems. It is therefore imperative for utility companies to consider live line working in certain circumstances. For more details about overhead power line repair and maintenance, contact Eleccomm.

Fiber Optic Cable Wiring Transmits Smooth Communications

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, December 14, 2017
ElecComm - telecommunication networks in Wilmington, MA

Fiber optic cables are widely used in communication networks due to the ultra fast transmission speeds and low susceptibility to noise and electromagnetic interference as compared to the conventional copper wires. Telecommunication networks in Plymouth, MA take advantage of these benefits and continue to maximize the potential of fiber optic cable systems.

Maximizing the use of fiber optics requires superb handling of cables during wiring and fiber optic splicing. The specialized glass fibers within the optical cables are less malleable than their copper counterparts, making them more fragile to tension in wiring. Excessive stress on the cables leads to broken optical fibers which are the major cause of network slowdown.

Fiber optic cable routes are characterized by standard arcs, loops, and fixtures not present in ordinary copper wiring. These techniques are requirements set by international electrical codes. Special licenses are issued to wiring technicians who handle fiber optic cables in addition to the wiring skills required for regular copper wires.

Telecommunication network design installations are better performed by trusted and proven fiber optic cable specialists. Mishandling of these delicate cables will lead to economic and operational loss. ElecComm Corporation’s technicians deliver superb fiber optic cable wiring and splicing for faster and smoother network communications.

Underground High Voltage Cable Installations Mitigate Economic Losses from Massive Blackouts in Winter

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, December 07, 2017
ElecComm Underground high voltage cable installations in Plymouth, MA

Replacing overhead power and telecommunication lines with underground cables is gaining ground across public utility companies in the Northeast. Extreme winter weather patterns that cause massive blackouts have prompted companies and federal state governments to consider a shift to underground high voltage cable systems.

Widespread blackouts due to snowstorms are a major public safety concern. Classes and work are suspended during outages resulting in decreased economic activity. When these power outages are prolonged over a period of days or weeks, overhead power line maintenance and repair are not cost effective. Businesses that run 24-hour operations as well as large industries with high production volume will be compelled to procure expensive generators and fuel or shutdown. In fact, as means of reducing maintenance costs, most generator systems in large offices and industrial complexes are actually complemented by an underground cabling system in addition to the overhead power lines installed by public utility companies.

From a corporate perspective, when economic losses outweigh the cost of maintaining overhead power lines, underground high voltage cable installation in Boston, MA is highly recommended. Though the majority of power lines across the country remain overhead, careful study per location should be made on a case-to-case basis.

Cost estimation and feasibility studies for community-wide or partial underground high voltage cable installation on many areas are on-going. It is best to consult an electrical system construction company in your own area. For more on underground high voltage cables, contact Eleccom.

Overhead power lines during winter months can pose hazards to the community and the establishments nearby. As accumulated snow and wind forces intensify throughout the season the need to mitigate the risks of power outage, fallen electric poles, and related damages increases.

While immediate restoration of the power supply for the resumption of normal commercial activities is of utmost concern, safety is the number one priority, especially for residential communities tormented by the winter storms in the Northeast. A safe power line repair operation is as vital as reduction of business loss.

Downed power line repair depends on the criticality of situations and are performed through either energized or de-energized operations. Though de-energized power lines pose a smaller threat of injury, there is still no power when these lines are down. The energized lines are a more serious matter that is better handled by trained electric utility personnel. Immediate action from proper authorities is key for a safe celebration of the holidays affected by damaged power lines.

Our storm response team for downed and damaged overhead power lines is equipped with the latest standard safety training. We are certified partners to major public utility and construction companies in MA. For more details to quick storm response for overhead lines contact ElecComm.

Even though damaged, lines are still live and can cause electrocution to people and animals. Power line storm response that is immediate can prevent these threats. Immediate repair of power lines also ensures the restoration of power which is vital for both businesses and residents.

It is also important to conduct regular repair and maintenance to overhead power lines as part of safety and preventative measures. This ensures that power lines and poles are up to standard. To find out more about repairing downed power lines, contact ElecComm.

Underground High Voltage Cable Networks Means Fewer Outages during Winter

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 05, 2017
ElecComm - underground high voltage cable installation in MA

Winter is right around the corner. While winter can bring a lot of exciting events and activities, the weather conditions can also cause quite a few inconveniences, one of which is power outages. Power outages in the winter can pose serious threats because of the frigid temperatures. But, there is a way to minimize these outages, with underground high voltage cable networks instead of overhead power lines.

Installing underground power lines reduces the chance of power outages during heavy snowfall and winter wind and ice storms. Mainly, because they are buried underground which means they are not exposed to the weather conditions like overhead power lines. During winter, power outages are most often caused by extreme weather, and restoring power can also take longer as a result.

Secondly, winter power outages are prevented by choosing underground high voltage cable installation because they can't be caused by damaged poles. Fallen, damaged, or broken poles can be caused by weather directly or by auto accidents caused by the slippery winter driving conditions. When lines are buried, poles are no longer required.

Underground cable and power line installation in cities where winter weather conditions present challenges are cost effective over time because of the reduced repair and maintenance costs associated with winter weather. To find out more, contact ElecComm.
