Power Distribution Analysis Software
Description: 

Power Distribution Analysis Software is designed for studying and simulating the behavior of electrical distribution networks under different loads and operating conditions.The package usually includes several built-in functions required for distribution network planning, operation and analysis. The network analysis functions like load flow short-circuit, and network optimizations can be performed on balanced or unbalanced distribution network.

Applications: 

The following are the applications of the Power Distribution Analysis Software:
-Power flow and voltage drop analysis
-Fault flow analysis
-Optimal capacitor placement and sizing
-Load balancing and load allocation/estimation
-Voltage drop analysis with profiles
-Harmonic analysis
-Switching (tie-points) optimization
-Network planning
-Distributed generation modeling
-Service restoration
-Reliability analysis (predictive and historical)
-Contingency analysis
-Substation and sub-network modeling and analysis
-Secondary network analysis
-Arc flash hazard assessment
-Protective device coordination
