Network Representation

PowerFactory supports all network representations and phase technologies, i.e. any kind of radial or meshed 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-wire (combined) AC and DC network.  Building a network is also facilitated through the provision of standard substation models.

  • Support of any kind of meshed/radial 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-wire AC and DC networks with combined AC and DC modelling for all available analysis functions
  • Single-phase, two-phase, bi-phase and three-phase technology with/without neutral
  • Hierarchical data model including sites, substations, bays, primary and secondary equipment
  • Detailed primary and secondary substation models (single/double busbars with or without tie breaker, 1½ busbar, bypass busbar), extendable for user-specific busbar configurations, including protection schemes
  • Switches and substation equipment such as CB, fuse, disconnector, load break switch, grounding switch, NEC/NER, CT, VT, CVT, combined CT/VT, etc.
  • Running arrangements and switching rules for substation automation
