PowerNet is a user-friendly electrical engineering software designed for electrical contractors, consultants, and organizations. It simplifies the design and analysis process for all types of electrical projects, making it easy to implement and use.
Designed to support a range of electrical projects, PowerNet is suitable for use in commercial building services, industrial plants, mining operations, power generation and transmission and distribution systems. With the ability to calculate both ring main and meshed network configurations, as well as radial type distribution, users can design and analyze electrical systems with multiple voltage levels.
PowerNet Circuit is equipped with a range of essential functions and features including the ability to draw and print single line diagrams. It can display complete electrical data, including node voltages, voltage drops, branch current, kVA, kW and kVAr flow. Additionally, it can evaluate the effects of disconnected devices and branches on the rest of the circuit, making it easy to identify potential issues.
Built to support fault calculations, PowerNet Circuit can calculate three-phase, line to ground, line to line and double line to ground fault, including motor contribution to fault. Symbol electrical data can be viewed by hovering the mouse over the respective symbol or line. Users can create or modify symbols, as well as highlight symbols with overcurrent, kVA/kW overload, or over/undervoltage.
With a range of options available for customization, users can use graphics to annotate and add titles, legends, and logos to their single line diagrams. Additionally, the circuit report text format is compatible with MS Word, WordPad, and OpenOffice, while the circuit report spreadsheet format is compatible with Excel.
Users can further edit the standard symbol set file supplied with PowerNet using PowerSym, a symbol editor tool that is included free of charge. PowerData is also supplied free, providing users with a tool to edit or create databases for electrical equipment, cables, and devices.
Overall, PowerNet is an exceptional software solution for electrical projects of all sizes. For more information, users can access PowerNet Web Help.
