APD Engineering’s power system studies team provide a range of services from computer modelling, load flow and short circuit, protection grading, arc flash assessment, motor start-up and harmonic and finally dynamic and transient switching studies for large loads and generation units connected to distribution and transmission systems.


APD Engineering was commissioned by Alinta Energy to assist with the compliance testing and PowerFactory model validation works required for Wagerup and Pinjarra Power Stations. In addition to the Technical Rules compliance testing, Alinta requested that APD perform a full suite of protection relay tests at the sites to ensure compliance with the latest requirements.
