What Is Acceptance Testing?

Looking for ways to extend the life of your equipment? Performing tests on new equipment to make sure they are installed and functioning properly can help extend the life of your equipment and save you money in the long run. According to electrical equipment manufacturers, up to 30% of newly installed electrical equipment fails to operate properly.

That’s why NCE offers Field Testing Services (ANSI/IEEE, NETA Standards) for all our customers. Acceptance testing and commissioning are performed to ensure the electrical
apparatus meets industry and manufacturer standards and prove all protection controls and SCADA systems are operating as per engineered design.

New electrical equipment requires acceptance testing and commissioning after being installed regardless of the size or industry. Visual and mechanical inspections verifies that the equipment is in compliance with purchase specifications and design intent. It will protect the validity of your manufacturer’s warranty through unbiased independent testing. This also sets the standard to how future equipment will be compared.

Acceptance Testing & Commissioning Services

NCE offers complete acceptance testing and commissioning services for both new substations (green field) and existing in-service substations (brown field). We’ll perform a thorough examination of your electrical equipment following installation and wiring into your power system. NCE’s technical expertise and experience on systems 480 KV to 765 KV will assure our customers that their systems will operate as designed and intended.
