Power Distribution Analysis Software

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.


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
