HERES WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DONT MAINTAIN YOUR COMMERCIAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS 1

While there are obvious issues associated with HVAC or refrigeration (CRFES) equipment failures, a facility's electrical and lighting system is the center of everything. So, of course, if your facility's electrical system succumbs to a breakdown, all electricity-dependent equipment is affected. This risks bringing essential day-to-day facility operations to a screeching halt. Unfortunately, like all facility equipment, lighting and electrical components degrade over time, especially under the stress of high voltage. Electrical systems, plain and simple, must be maintained proactively, not just in instances of dire emergency. Facility staff and owners need to be aware of the lifespans of their equipment and also understand the year-to-year status of that equipment. They should also know what services are available to help with preventative maintenance to recognize issues before they become emergencies.Now, there is always the hypothetical situation when the electrical systems are not maintained with the proper maintenance services. In this less-than-ideal scenario, we break down what you can expect to happen. Not the Brightest BulbWhen lighting specifically is neglected, the obvious result is visual defects — lights will be broken and there will be darkness in places there should not be. Beyond aesthetics, there are a few critical issues with this situation. The first is the issue of security, as unlit areas allow more avenues of entry for unauthorized or even dangerous persons. Secondly, broken lighting can lead to people getting injured, which then can result in serious legal liabilities for facility owners. Neither of these scenarios is positive and should be avoided at all costs.Another point of note is energy efficiency. Older lights nearing the end of their working lives can be replaced or retrofitted with increasingly more effective LED lighting — saving the facility an incredible amount of money over time and increasing the time between replacements.Breaking the Switchboard or SwitchgearThe switchboard — or the switchgear in some cases — is the mothership of your facility's electrical system. These devices comprise of various circuit breakers and electrical relays, which facilitate or cut off the electrical flow throughout a facility. The difference between a switchgear and a switchboard relates to the amount of voltage each can handle — a switchgear handles charges up to 35,000 volts while a switchboard is used for voltages of less than 600. In either case, both are critical to facility operations and protect facility equipment from events like power surges.In the case a switchboard is neglected and a malfunction occurs, the entire facility must shut down as a replacement is installed. Switchgears, by comparison, are easier to maintain but are far more costly. In both cases, consistently dealing with high-voltage electrical currents takes its toll over time, which means at least an annual checkup is needed to ensure that a complete breakdown is not on the horizon. Emergency maintenance is far more costly both in terms of the actual repairs and the time lost if the facility must stop operations until maintenance is complete. Infrared Sees AllThe primary preventative maintenance measure for electrical systems is infrared testing. Infrared is useful for detecting early problems since heat is an important symptom of electrical components on the verge of breaking down or malfunctioning. Additionally, infrared thermography is non-invasive, which means facility operations do not need to stop while the check is being conducted. Through infrared, maintenance service crews can detect blown fuses, broken motors, overloaded circuit breakers, and much more.Be Proactive, Not ReactiveReactive maintenance (better known as emergency maintenance) destroys budgets. Electrical system malfunctions can be hard to detect, and you will only know something is wrong once it breaks. Furthermore, not taking an analytical look at the energy efficiency of a facility can mean the difference of thousands of dollars a year in an unnecessary and avoidable expense.According to the Department of Energy, preventative maintenance services reduce costs by 25-30 percent, eliminate the potential of breakdowns by 70 percent, and reduce facility downtime by 35 percent on average. While preventative maintenance service is not a guarantee that breakdowns wo not occur, the chances of critical equipment malfunctions dramatically drop when implemented. In almost every case, your best bet is to lean on preventative maintenance service.To learn more, visit our blog

What's Wrong with My Cars Electrical System? Is It a Relay?
What's wrong with my cars electrical system? Is it a relay?The fuses may be good but do they have power running through them ??? I would say you may have a bad connection at your battery cable or fuse box. There is no one relay that will cause all those items not to work. May need to have it checked out by a reputable auto repair facility :)— — — — — —Reasons a car won't start if electrical system is good?If the electrical is OK, the next place to look is fuel. One thing electrical you failed to mention is the spark plugs— — — — — —Will solar panels installed on houses eventually lead to the electric system becoming decentralized?Hello Jared,What do we mean when we use the term decentralized? We could think about our national power grid as if it were a computer network. In this graphic we see the topology of various networks:Source: File:NetworkTopologies.svg - Wikimedia CommonsMany people mistakenly think of our national power grid as a star with a central generator and power lines connecting to multiple users. There are a few places that follow this configuration, but most don't. It's not good from a performance perspective as a single failure at the power plant and everybody is in the dark.Instead, we add redundancy in the form of geographically distributed generators and redundant power lines. This way when something goes wrong, there are backup systems and alternative routes to keep the system running. In a cost-no-objective world, our power grid would be designed as a fully connected mesh. While that's a nice idea, you can imagine the cost would be excessive. Consequently, we design mesh and ring networks with particular attention to the critical routes. Like everything else in life, we balance cost against performance; we do the best we can.The point of all of this is to understand that the grid is already decentralized. Hands down, it's the largest most wonderfully complex machine that we have ever built.Sidebar: we should always say thank you to the women and men who have dedicated their lives to keeping this system working. Thank you to the linemen, the mechanic, the engineer, and the operators in the control room. Your question implies that we could one day find a way to operate without this grid. Perhaps you have read about the movement to take control of our energy - to democratize our electrical systems. The glossy papers describes a house with solar on the roof, a battery in the basement, and an electric car in the drive. It's a compelling idea. It's easy to point to the solar on the roof and take pride in doing your part to make the world a better place. It's even more compelling, because the idea resonates with the power of the American dream. Nothing says, 'I have arrived," as strongly as the beautiful house and car. It's time to ask the big question:Can it be done? Yes. We have the technology to make that a reality.Can it be done? Absolutely not! The economics are disconnected from reality. Home solar is the most expensive form of generation in our inventory. Home (behind the meter) storage is just as expensive. As a society, we would be better off doing just about anything else e. g. , strict insulation mandates or heat pump mandates. If we want democracy, then mandate X number of small affordable housing units be build in every neighborhood. Let the architects do their job and build housing to pull neighborhoods together e. g. , cohousing. If solar and storage are to be part of the system then they should be installed in centralized locations. This way the system can be optimized for maximum performance and minimal cost.There is an additional component of providing for our commercial, industry, and transportation requirements. Like the flow of people, the grid must facilitate the flow of power from source to our places of work.Regards,APDahlenWill solar panels installed on houses eventually lead to the electric system becoming decentralized?— — — — — —I have a problem with a 480 volt 3 phase 3 wire ungrounded electrical system. ?You are apparently measuring each phase to ground. With an ungrounded system this has no particular value. To protect the system each circuit needs the protection of a circuit breaker. The breaker protects the wire that feeds the circuit. If you are concerned about a phase short to ground then you need some kind of ground fault sensing device
