Coming Soon - Power System Reliability Module
Our new module will give electrical engineers the tools to quantify the reliability and availability of their electrical power system networks. This feature-set is based on IEEE 493 Recommended Practices for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems. Also known as the Gold Book, this specification is the defining standard in the industry. Very little additional work is required to perform the reliability assessment on your power system once the oneline diagram has been created.
Reliable Power Systems
As power systems age, the frequency and duration of interruptions will increase significantly. Now more than ever, it is crucial in the maintenance and design of power systems to have a solid understanding of the analysis and design of reliable and cost-effective utility, industrial, and commercial power distribution systems.
- Automated mapping of IEEE 493 Annex Q empirical reliability data to the equipment in your oneline diagram.
- One-click analysis of the entire system or a specific load branch.
- Output of data and metrics to Microsoft Excel™.
- Up to triple redundancy factored into analysis.
- Use scenario manager to:
- Analyze multiple scenarios to maximize uptime or minimize cost.
- Decide if it makes sense to repair or replace each piece of equipment based on the associated costs and related downtime.
- Pareto of top contributors to unreliability.
- Use Monte-Carlo simulation to:
- Model variation in equipment reliability rates.
- Model variation in repair and replacement times.
- Model reliability rates as a function of equipment age.
