The purpose of electric systems start-up, commissioning and testing is to increase the stability, integrity and reliability of electrical power systems after installation by identifying problems and providing a set of baseline values for comparison with subsequent routine tests.
Before commencing the pre-commission tests, it is necessary to visually inspect various parts, components and accessories of the electrical system and also to conduct operational checks for various equipment associated with the electrical system. Check lists may be followed for the visual inspection and the operational checks so that the pre-commission checks are conducted in a systematic manner.
Various types of testing, measuring and analyzing instruments are used to ensure that the various systems and sub systems equipment are functioning correctly. These instruments are performed on circuit breakers, transformers, protection relays, instrument transformers, batteries, UPS system and motors.
