Elion Technologies Brings Holistic Electrical Safety and Efficiency to Bengaluru Apartments


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its comprehensive approach to electrical safety and efficiency through a recent project in a residential apartment complex in Bengaluru, Karnataka. This case study highlights the effectiveness of combining Electrical Safety Audits, Thermography, Earth Pit Testing, and Power Quality Analysis to create a safer, more reliable, and efficient electrical environment for residents.

Project Overview:

The residents’ association of the apartment complex, concerned about potential electrical hazards and rising energy costs, sought Elion Technologies’ expertise to assess the overall electrical infrastructure. We conducted a multi-pronged approach to address their concerns.

Electrical Audit Services


  1. Electrical Safety Audit:

Our experienced electrical engineers meticulously inspected all electrical components, from switchboards and panels to wiring and lighting systems in individual apartments and common areas. We:

  • Assessed adherence to national and international electrical safety standards.
  • Identified potential fire hazards, faulty connections, and outdated equipment.
  • Verified adequate earthing and grounding for optimal safety.
  1. Thermography:

Trained thermographers utilized advanced thermal imaging cameras to capture temperature variations across electrical equipment. These infrared images revealed hidden issues like:

  • Overheating components and connections, indicating potential overload or wear.
  • Imbalanced loads, leading to inefficiencies and reduced lifespan of equipment.
  • Faulty transformers and switchgear, posing safety risks.
  1. Earth Pit Testing:

We evaluated the effectiveness of the earthing system, crucial for safety and equipment protection. We:

  • Measured soil resistivity to ensure proper grounding conductivity.
  • Analyzed earth pit leakage currents and voltage drops to assess system performance.
  1. Power Quality Analysis:

Advanced instruments recorded voltage fluctuations, harmonics, and other power quality parameters. This analysis identified:

  • Voltage dips and spikes, impacting equipment performance and lifespan.
  • Harmonics distortion, reducing energy efficiency and causing operational issues.

Combining Insights:

By combining the data from all four methodologies, we painted a comprehensive picture of the electrical health and safety of the apartment complex. This allowed us to identify not only immediate safety concerns but also areas for optimization and cost savings.

Findings and Recommendations:

The combined assessment revealed various issues across the complex, including:

  • Outdated and inadequately protected wiring in some apartments.
  • Overloaded circuits and panels exceeding safe capacity.
  • Faulty transformers and switchgear requiring immediate replacement.
  • Inefficient lighting systems in common areas.
  • Improper earthing in certain locations, posing safety risks.
  • Voltage fluctuations and harmonics distortion impacting equipment performance and energy efficiency.

Based on these findings, we provided a detailed report with prioritized recommendations, including:

  • Upgrading outdated wiring and safety measures in individual apartments.
  • Load rebalancing and panel upgrades to address overloading issues.
  • Replacing faulty transformers and switchgear for improved safety and reliability.
  • Retrofitting common areas with energy-efficient LED lighting.
  • Improving earthing systems for optimal safety and equipment protection.
  • Power quality improvement solutions like voltage regulators and harmonic filters.


By implementing our recommendations, the apartment complex achieved remarkable results:

  • Enhanced electrical safety: Upgraded systems and addressed hazards significantly reduced the risk of electrical accidents for residents.
  • Improved reliability and reduced downtime: Replaced equipment and optimized systems minimized disruptions and ensured consistent power supply.
  • Energy cost savings: Efficient lighting and power quality improvements led to significant reductions in electricity bills.
  • Extended equipment lifespan: Proper maintenance and safety measures maximized the lifespan of electrical components.
  • Peace of mind for residents: Knowing their electrical infrastructure was safe and efficient provided residents with valuable reassurance.


This case study exemplifies the power of Elion Technologies’ comprehensive approach to residential electrical safety and efficiency. By combining meticulous data analysis with advanced technologies like thermography and earth pit testing, we helped this Bengaluru apartment complex achieve significant positive impacts on their electrical systems, leading to a safer, more reliable, and cost-effective environment for residents.
