Power System Reliability Module
Our new module, Power System Reliability, gives 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.
Minimal additional work is required to perform a reliability assessment on your power system once the one-line 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 empirical reliability data to the equipment in your one-line from IEEE 493 Annex Q, published data from equipment manufacturers, or your own data.
- One-click analysis of the entire system or a specific load branch.
- Calculation of failure rate, downtime, and costs associated with downtime, repair, and replacement of equipment.
- Output of all data, calculated metrics, and graphs, to Microsoft products.
- Up to triple redundancy factored into analysis.
- Use scenario manager to:
- Analyze multiple situations 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 charts display the top contributors to downtime so you can focus your efforts.
