  • Switching Optimization: assists in determining the optimal feeder configuration that will minimize losses, improve the voltage profile and balance the load between feeders.
  • Single Contingency with Restoration: to study the impact of single forced or planned outages on the electrical distribution system and find the optimal switching plan to restore electrical power to priority customers and to recover the maximum possible load in the affected areas.
  • Enhanced Substation Modeling: to model all the major components of the distribution substation and any sub-network such as the detailed modeling of an industrial facility.
  • Secondary Grid Networks Analysis: allows the power flow and short circuit analyses of heavily meshed secondary network distribution systems for any voltage level.

The One Line diagram and the Time-Current curve can be exported to files for inclusion in other reports as well.

The program is capable of generating all the necessary study benchmarks such as cable and conductor damage curves, motor starting curves, transformer withstand curves, inrush and thermal points and offers comprehensive graphical and tabular means for verifying the curve clearances at any fault current or system voltage level. The Arc Flash Hazards Analysis module can be added to Protective Device Coordination software to further complement the analyses.
