Our Services

Charles Taylor Technical Services (CTTS) applies Electro-Magnetic Signature Analysis (EMSA) diagnostic technology to owners and operators of critical electrical power apparatus.

EMSA technology is a non-invasive test that is applied to fully energized and operational electrical equipment and circuits. EMSA testing is performed during normal operations (without the need for a plant shutdown), without any risk of tripping or other adverse operational situations. EMSA testing is sophisticated and highly accurate method of testing electrical equipment and apparatus. The test is performed online and while energized.

CTTS maintains a deep bench of highly skilled and qualified Professional Electrical Engineers to successfully perform this advanced testing service. Our professional staff has many years of experience related to large power electrical apparatus, including generators, isophase bus, transformers, switchgear, and other related electrical apparatus. We have identified over 70 different adverse conditions which can and often do lead to electrical breakdown and even failure. Our expert staff lead the industry as pioneers in the application of EMSA, with extensive research and experience over the past 5 decades.
