PowerFlow™ Features

Automatic Voltage Control Equipment

  • Load tap changer (LTC) adjustment on 2 and 3 winding transformers, either voltage or var controlled. Fixed transformer taps are also allowed.
  • Utility/generator swing voltage control for PV and PQ models
  • Generator reactive var compensation for voltage control

Expert System Overload Evaluation

  • Overloaded equipment instantaneously highlighted for fast sizing and verification
  • Overload evaluations performed on transformers (2 and 3 winding), current-limiting reactors, cables, transmission lines, and busway
  • Buses with improper voltages are highlighted instantly for easy identification and diagnosis
  • Adjustable min/max thresholds for voltage and overload violation notification
  • Enhanced generator modeling

Multiple Swing Sources

  • Multiple swing sources can be located on islanded or fully connected systems
  • Various generator models supported: swing, PV, and PQ
  • Includes both local and remote voltage control for the PV model
  • Includes user-definable source voltages for the swing and PV models
  • Multiple generators and generator types supported on a single bus
  • Comprehensive load modeling

Mix and Match Load Types

  • Any combination of load types supported: constant MVA, constant I, and constant Z loads
  • Easy load scaling capabilities for what-if checking, diversity, peak loading, and more
  • Import SCADA data for near real-time analysis
  • Use to determine the effects of generation control, load forecasting, and other contingencies on the system
  • Lumped motor and load capabilities

Impact Motor Starting

  • Impact starting for quick motor-start and voltage-drop results
  • Start multiple motors simultaneously
  • Any starting configuration, including auto-transformer, reduced current, etc.
  • Open and close breakers, capacitors, filters, and more for real-time simulation

Detailed Reports

  • New tabular HTML reports itemize branch flows and loads for thorough analysis
  • One click exports to Excel, Word, Open Office, and more

Enhanced Menus, Toolbars, and Options Dialog

  • Selection and modeling of power flow properties are completely simplified
