PS&C Engineering Capability

Power Systems & Controls focus has always, and will continue to be to nurture an environment of innovation and creativity. Our engineering department offers the highest level of knowledge, experience, and creativity in the industry. We have designed and provided products for Government, Non-Government, and International clients. We also have been tasked over the years with engineering power solutions for the world’s most complex power problems, and have a history of working with the Fortune 250, as well as, smaller but as important clients.

More than 25% of all employees are degreed engineers with our “Center for Excellence” in power quality products being located at our main factory in Richmond, VA.  Our engineering staff works with the latest technology available for the design and implementation of our products. PS&C is staffed with engineers in all areas of expertise required to complete the task, including Engineering Management professionals with extensive experience in technology organizations, as well as, companies in related fields. This combination provides the best blend of talent, education, and “know how” necessary to keep PS&C on the forefront.  Examples of our capabilities include steel structures that can withstand 5 G’s during Airlift transport to the design of the World’s most complex Motor Generator sets. There is no problem or challenge we cannot answer or overcome.

PS&C’s achievements such as a complex 8 MW “Ring Bus” designed and built in 1988, HEMP rated “HI-ISO” MG sets designed in 2002, the transformer-less IGBT/IGBT Static UPS executed in 2005, medium voltage Frequency Converters for the Missile Defense Agency, as well as, the Intelligent Micro Grid, both completed in 2010, are only a small glimpse of our companies capabilities and qualifications.

Facilities

In 1982, Power System & Controls moved into its existing facility, a two-story building and adjoining manufacturing area. Today, this facility has more than 60,000 sq. ft. under roof with an additional 60,000 sq. ft. of secured assembly and holding areas. PS&C’ power service consists of a 1662kVA utility feed, and an independent 3MW generator plant. The utility service is coupled with necessary switchgear, load banks, and controls to fully test all PS&C products. For structural fabrication PS&C has overhead cranes and lift vehicles with a combined capacity of 45 tons. Our structural enclosure department works with state of the art CNC turret punch presses, as well as, advanced press brakes, shears, and welding equipment. Additionally, PS&C utilizes sheet metal nesting and CAD/CAM software to further integrate engineering and manufacturing, which in turn streamlines the overall production process. 

Service & Support

PS&C maintains an emergency service hot line 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure the quickest response to any problem. Our team of field service engineers is among the best trained in the industry.  They are responsible for quality control and final test of every PS&C product before it reaches the customer.  This unique service structure results in faster production feedback and a more efficient start-up.

To ensure the reliability of PS&C equipment, we offer a variety of maintenance contracts, including preventive and full service.  Many of our customers have received more than fifteen years of reliable protection from PS&C equipment by simply having routine scheduled maintenance performed.  The high quality service offered by PS&C along with the long design life of all of its products helps ensure that our customers obtain the lowest total cost of ownership available in the industry.

Customers & Clients

PS&C has enjoyed over the years, strong relationships with the defense and intelligence communities, such as the D.O.D., N.S.A., Army, Navy, Air Force, etc. Additionally, we have personnel that have security clearance for the D.O.D. & State Department for projects that require classified status. PS&C has developed and manufactured, for the Department of State and other agencies, power systems for flight line, forward operating forces, and fixed installations.
