Significant challenges and numerous risks are involved in the construction, maintenance, optimization, and operation of power systems. Power system studies facilitate the analysis, prevention, resolution, or mitigation of various problems.
20+ years of experience in power system studies
Whether the objective is to negotiate with a public utility to establish the criteria for interconnection, design the master plan to modernize a plant, or optimize the configuration of a solar farm, the Power System Study Team at CIMA+ can do it all!
Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of standards and regulations and our project experience gathered throughout North America and overseas, CIMA+ can provide tailored-made services to the client.
We also specialize in simulation software and offer many services in this area. The data for our studies is collected on-site by experienced engineers, then verified and measured using cutting-edge equipment, guaranteeing accurate results.

CIMA+’s achievements span more than 30 years and speak for themselves.
Our specialized services
Rely on our multidisciplinary professionals to meet your requirements and expectations. For your project, we can offer you a full range of engineering services—from start to finish.
CIMA+ offers a full range of services, from grounding studies, electric field measurements and data analysis to detailed grounding grid design and safety performance analysis.
CIMA+ specialists have developed extensive expertise in the design of grounding systems for electrical installations. Our clients in this area range from large corporations to public and private service providers and industrial site operators.
An arc flash is a short circuit that occurs in the atmosphere, like lightning during a thunderstorm. Arc flashes can cause any metal in its path to expand explosively. Exposure to an arc can result in serious injury or death. For this reason, it is vital to conduct arc flash studies and identify protective measures, including safety clearances and perimeters and the use of adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) tailored to specific hazards.
CIMA+ experts have been conducting such arc flash studies for decades. They analyze risks and propose solutions to ensure the safety of your workers and your facilities. Our services include:
- Assessing the condition of your network using 3D surveys and modeling of your facilities.
- Updating your single-line diagrams.
- Identify the required information on your equipment classification labels.
- The modernization (digitalization) of your management system and display of the risks of arc flashes according to the new technologies available.
- Staff training.
