HTS Consulting is a consulting, implementation and maintenance agency for energy and automation projects. Our headquarters are in Romania, but HTS Consulting teams are present everywhere in the world, with our crew of elite engineers bringing their practical know-how and expert qualifications into global and local projects all around the globe. As we are familiar with products and procedures of all big manufacturers, we step in to deliver the benefits of an ever-developing global industry to diverse, complex systems of local standards and requirements.
Global and local clients that we work with recommend our experts as very flexible and always ready to step in with ingenious, original approaches and solutions. A selective list of projects we’ve been on can be found in the „Portfolio” section under References, while the Services section provides information about the team and the main services we can deliver on site.

HTS testing and commissioning provides services that promote long-term, efficient operation of electrical generation and delivery systems. We mobilize teams to all parts of the world, servicing power delivery systems from 480V to 400 kV and generation systems up to 2000 MW. From legacy devices to highly integrated peer-to-peer solutions based on the latest protocols and standards (such as IEC 61850), our team understands the critical nature of your electric service and the value of your equipment investment. Testing and commissioning services that our team will deliver include the following:
Key to power systems safety and reliability is properly designed and coordinated relay protection settings. HTS engineers provide a broad range of services in creating setting files to protect transmission, distribution, and generation systems up to 400kV. Our engineers are experienced in finding the optimum balance between security and reliability, while also adhering to customer protection relay logic requirements.
Factory acceptance testing determines that each piece of electrical equipment is ready for energization and that it will operate as designed and perform as an integral part of the system. Test personnel inspect and provide factory acceptance testing on each piece of the equipment to verify it meets specification to, energize and verify the overall installation of the system conforms to the drawings. HTS will conduct factory acceptance tests with the system owner, on manufacturer's behalf and on manufacturer's premises. The tests are done according to the IEC regulations, national standards and FAT procedures prepared by the vendor/system integrator. These services will include the following:
HTS provides a wide range of inspection and maintenance services for all types of high voltage substation equipment. Our complete substation maintenance and repair services include:
Any maintenance and/or repair project generally follows a process which includes our:
AC technology has proved very effective in the field of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy.
Nevertheless, there are tasks which cannot be performed economically or with technical perfection by this method. For instance: economical power transmission over very long distances, power transmission via cables, power transmission between networks operating asynchronously or at different frequencies, input of additional power without increasing the short circuit ratio of the network concerned.
For all these tasks High Voltage Direct Current transmission is not only a relaistic technical and economical alternative to AC technology, but also the only possible transmission method.
Our staff has managed all aspects of engineering development, site planning and technical review of the physical and AC system control and protection sides of HVDC terminals and back-to-back converter stations.
HVDC/FACTS commissioning services offered by our specialists includes:
For generations, electric power system protection has been accomplished with the use of relays – electromechanical, solid-state, and microprocessor-based. We understand the inherent strengths and weaknesses of each. We also understand that relays, like other devices, have life cycles.
Nowadays, electromechanical and solid-state relays are being phased out, their strengths overshadowed by those of microprocessor-based relays. This is having a significant impact on the utilities operated by many industries.
Rest assured, we at HTS can handle relay replacement projects of any size or complexity. We know how to tackle every aspect of relay replacement flawlessly, too, from tracing wires to commissioning an entirely new relay system. What’s more, we can replace relays in your existing doors or provide a package that includes new doors manufactured to the specifications of your originals.
Our full range of relay replacement capabilities includes:
Replacing a SCADA system is a major project. Also, due to rapidly changing technology and business practices, it has to be carried out with increasing frequency. Now, instead of perhaps 15 years between projects in the past, there is less than a 10 year gap. This puts a lot of pressure on utility companies. The most important issues which are defining the needs of upgrading a SCADA system are:
