SES' primary focus is helping its customers assess and mitigate the effects of grounding & electromagnetic interference on people, equipment and the environment, safely, efficiently and economically.
Since its foundation in 1978, SES has been recognized as an undisputed world authority on the effects of soil on the interaction between electric installations and other utilities such as gas and oil pipelines, communication industries, railway electrification. SES holds the distinction of being the only company worldwide totally dedicated to providing the engineering community with expertise, software and training for the solution of complex problems related to grounding and electromagnetic interference. SES has earned an international reputation for pioneering work in grounding and in electromagnetic and conductive interference analysis involving electrical networks. Typical areas of application for its R&D work include electrical system networks and neighboring utility installations such as oil and gas pipelines, telecommunications cables and railway tracks.
Its leadership is maintained through an aggressive and ongoing R&D program, regular involvement in the analysis of a wide variety of practical and challenging industrial problems, and its support of a superior and growing line of engineering applications software modules.
The CDEGS software package is SES' flagship product. This industry-leading application and its various subpackages constitute a powerful set of integrated engineering software tools designed to accurately analyze problems involving grounding, electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic interference including AC/DC interference mitigation studies and various aspects of cathodic protection and anode bed analysis with a global perspective, starting literally from the ground up.
SES's guiding principle is the belief that every customer desires, deserves and requires individual solutions for his/her unique needs. Therefore, the company custom designs its tools, programs, applications, procedures and services to suit the specific situation of each individual customer.
At the very core of SES are three distinct but interrelated departments. The analytical research and development department designs scientific tools necessary to address grounding, electromagnetic interference and cathodic protection problems in relation to their respective environments. This department provides the conceptual solutions to problems and develops the specifications for the analytical portions of the software.
The software development department writes, tests and validates the software code required to implement, on various computer platforms, the analytical models developed by R & D team. It also provides sophisticated and efficient input, output and graphical interfaces to the newly developed code.
Finally, the applied research and development department incorporates and implements the technology generated by the other departments, while contributing important feedback necessary for improving existing techniques and the advancement of R & D activities.
All three departments interact continuously with each other and with each client to ensure an ongoing synergy of ideas and information.
The company's wealth of knowledge is accessible to customers via state of the art software packages, engineering applications and R & D services, comprehensive hands-on training sessions and a telephone / fax / email technical support hotline.
