Over a Century of Electrical Engineering Expertise

Optimation provides electrical engineering services for a wide variety of applications including process control and automation and much more.  Our engineers have over a century of combined experience and expertise in providing a full range of project services across industries such as automotive, aerospace, chemical, consumer product manufacturing, life sciences/pharmaceutical, oil and gas and  glass just to name a few.  

Electrical Engineering Services We Provide

Our electrical engineering services include user requirement specification development, functional and detailed design specification development, investigations, project management, design documentation, test plans, startup and commissioning debug and 24/7 support.

Optimation has an Industrial Services group, consisting of highly skilled trades people, that manage and implement our fabrication and assembly activities along with our construction and maintenance activities.  How does this benefit you? We can also provide complete turnkey capabilities by leveraging our Industrial Services group. Check out our Fabrication and Assembly and Construction and Maintenance pages.

Engineering the right way is important to us. That is why Optimation’s electrical engineers are well versed with national codes and regulations and assure compliance to the applicable codes.

Complete Electrical Engineering Design Services

Our electrical engineers are experienced in low, medium and high voltage applications up to 230 kv. We have extensive knowledge, analytical tools, and experience in load flow analysis, various fault analysis situations, harmonic spectrum analysis, and multi-level protection coordination to handle a wide variety of client needs. We have worked with clients in reviewing their plant loads, updating their relay protection schemes, and providing seminars on their power system and ways to reduce their operating costs through energy management. Additionally, we have provided load-shedding schemes to minimize plant down time. Finally, our experience includes extensive work with industrial control, integrated drive systems, and startup of new facilities.

Complete Control Design Services

We have an experienced group of highly proficient engineers and designers. Our engineering team develops control systems based on client requirements, as well as conducts investigations to determine the requirements that are needed on a project-by-project basis. We recommend, engineer, design, and implement the appropriate DCS, SCADA, PLC and/or stand-alone control system for each application. Optimation’s electrical engineering staff is experienced in the design of variable speed drives, stepper and servomotors, and other motor control applications. We examine and evaluate engineering applications and provide specifications and working with our instrumentation engineers instrument selection. Check out our Instrumentation Engineering page.

Engineering Release Packages for Bids and Installation

We prepare construction and specification work (release) bid packages for both demolition and installation purposes. Additionally, we provide on-site services to provide immediate follow-up while the project is being installed.

Control Loop Design

Our instrument engineers provide process control loop design alternatives, allowing the client to select the best solution for their problem.
