Short Circuit Study — Most Frequently Asked Questions in 2019!

Short circuit study FAQs cover

What is a Short Circuit Study OR Short Circuit Analysis?

“An examination of an electrical framework that decides the magnitude of the currents that flow during an electrical fault.”

Short circuit occurs when part of a current carrying conductor touches or comes in contact with another wire or part of the circuit and gives the electricity a path of less resistance to flow. This results in excessive current flow in the power systems through the path of low resistance and may even cause the power source to be destroyed in addition to causing more heat and fires.
