PowerFactory for Industrial Sytems

To ensure continuity of production and the safety of personnel, the proper operation of industrial networks is of utmost importance. With high precision load fl ow algorithms, fl exible short-circuit calculation features, 4-wire modelling, protection system modelling, harmonic analysis and fi lter design options, PowerFactory offers a vast array of functionality perfectly suited to the industrial user’s needs. In addition, PowerFactory provides calculation accuracy, appropriate standards, clearly presented results, and a comprehensive and user-friendly interface.

Typically required studies include

  • Analysis of voltage drop and transformer and generator regulation using load flow functionality
  • Short-circuit calculations according to IEC, ANSI and VDE standards
  • HV & LV cable sizing according to IEC, NF and BS standards; ampacity, voltage drop, short-circuit capability
  • Motor starting, re-acceleration and voltage drop analysis
  • Protection scheme coordination (overcurrent, differential, distance and signalling)
  • Harmonic distortion and resonance studies; fi lter sizing
  • Network reliability analysis, scenarios and fault models
  • Time domain simulation for stability analysis and examination of electromagnetic transients
