Electrical equipment is not cheap. When you invest in this type of machinery, you want to make sure it will last you for years to come. That is why it’s important to carry out acceptance tests on new equipment to make sure they are performing properly. These tests can help your equipment last longer and save you money on repairs and maintenance in the future. If you live in Berwyn or the surrounding area, you can count on North Central Electric for acceptance testing and commissioning for your electrical equipment. 


Field Testing Services with North Central Electric

At North Central Electric, we offer field testing services for all our customers. To ensure quality, our tests are performed at ANSI/IEEE, NETA standards. At NCE, we perform these tests to help our customers verify that their new electrical equipment is up to the required standards, protection controls, and SCADA systems. Due to the laws in the field, these tests are required no matter the size or purpose of your equipment. Acceptance testing and commissioning will verify the warranty on your equipment, so it can be protected in the future. These tests are necessary to promote safety and ensure proper operation. 


The Testing Process

While we perform field testing with new electrical equipment, also known as greenfield, we also test equipment that is currently in-service (brownfield). Our testing differs from the rest due to our lengthy experience with 480 KV to 765 KV electrical systems.
