ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

Brockenbrough’s electrical engineering experience spans all types of industrial and commercial construction. From small buildings to large industrial facilities, engineers can design lighting, power distribution, control, and communication systems to meet the client’s needs.

Brockenbrough’s experience includes 120-volt to 20,000-volt overhead and underground distribution system design, power system condition assessments, as well as planning and design for the upgrade and expansion of existing distribution systems in industrial, commercial and military settings. Getting power to where it’s needed is the first goal of electrical engineering. Engineers at Brockenbrough can be counted on to design a system that is safe, efficient, reliable and fully code compliant.

Proper lighting design can lead to enhanced safety, functionality and aesthetics for many facilities. The design of a lighting system must take into account the end users’ requirements, energy efficiency, maintainability, uniformity, and the impact on surrounding areas. Brockenbrough’s electrical engineering team has experience in the design of exterior lighting systems for sports, roadways, interstate rest areas, parking, security, and accent applications. For interiors, Brockenbrough has experience designing lighting systems for offices, warehouses and industrial facilities.

Emergency power systems are used for many reasons, including personal safety, data preservation, process continuation and personal comfort. Brockenbrough is experienced in the design of backup generator systems with automatic or manual transfer and UPS systems. When emergency power is needed for a short period, electrical engineering teams can design a UPS system suited for the installation. When power is needed for longer periods, they can design a diesel generator system with a fuel supply to facilitate any runtime required.

A control system’s complexity, when tailored for a process, can range from a few simple relays to dedicated systems built around PLCs with large quantities of field instruments and multiple workstations with control capabilities. With experience in Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) systems and Distributed Control Systems (DCS), the electrical engineering team can design control and instrumentation systems to suit any process. Brockenbrough also provides instrumentation including tank level alarms and gauging and system pressure, flow and vibration sensing.
