ELECTRICAL DESIGN

 

Electrical System – Low Voltage

It is a module for the management of TT, TN-S, TN-C, IT wiring systems, with possibility of managing UPS systems, Generators in network commutation mode and Co-generators in parallel with the grid.

  • Calculation for the plant design, check, and coordination of conductors and protection devices in accordance with main Standards, as IEC 60364 (CEI 64-8), IEC 60900 (CEI 11-25, CEI 11-28) etc… Check of the switchboard internal over-temperature.
  • Archive management (Data Base) of protection devices, cables, accessories, metal enclosures, transformers and bus-bar. The internal database is completely open: the user can add, modify and implement technical and economic data.
  • Progetto Integra shows economic data for all equipment in the electrical system (protection devices, cables, metal enclosures etc.). Data are displayed Project, Power supply, switchboard and Outgoing-feeder, with real time updates of the overall costs of the plant. The user can easily assess economic differences making a brand change.
  • Calculation of the harmonic thermal effect on conductors based on current harmonic distortion (THDI %) and its corresponding corrective K for the capacities (IEC 60364-5-52). Assessment of indirect contacts protection with calculated and/or measured fault impedance, and touch voltage calculation.
  • Finished project automatic analysis, useful to highlight system deficiencies and to provide technical-regulatory suggestions.
  • Realization and printing of calculation tables and check in Excel format, with the possibility to customize documents with desired formats and calculation variables.

 

Switchboards

This module allows the user to automatically realize the composition of switchboards metal enclosures, completed with all internal accessories. It can produce the front panel graphic representation for all the major manufacturers. The bill of materials of metal enclosure is currently available only for Siemens materials and components.

 

Data Base

It is a module for the management of Price lists and Archives containing equipment, cables, switchboards metal enclosures and accessories of all major brands, with more than 400.000 available components. It manages a series of unlimited tree structures composed of chapters and subchapters, containing prices and price analysis, completely extensible and customisable. It manages data output and reports in various formats without limits or constraints.

 

Single Line Drawings

Realization and automatic printing of single line drawings in dwg format, by a standard AutoCAD interface or by an internal dwg compatible engine “ExelCAD”. Printable technical data and graphic symbols are freely customizable. Realization and automatic printing of calculation and check tables in Word environment, with the possibility to customize documents with desired formats and calculation variables.

 

Internal Graphic engine - ExelCAD

It allows the generation, opening, saving and printing of dwg files. It is compatible with dwg files of AutoCAD latest versions, it allows the automatic printing of previously created dwg files, the assembly of different dwg in one single file and the multiple layouts management.

 

OPTIONAL MODULES

 

MEDIUM VOLTAGE

The MV optional module allows to perform the following operations:

  • Calculations for the design, verification, coordination of conductors and protection devices relating to medium voltage according with the regulations in force and to the CEI 0-16 standard. Possibility of checking the coordination of MV / LV protections.
  • MV / MV plant management
  • Printing of medium voltage single-line diagrams with indication of transformer data.
  • Printing of the coordination of the protection tripping curves with indication of the limits imposed by the Distributor.
  • This module is managed directly through the “Electrical wiring” component.

 

PHOTOVOLTAIC

The PV optional module allows to perform the following operations:

  • Sizing of photovoltaic systems (automatic choice of the possible combinations between photovoltaic panels and inverters, sizing of the number of strings, coordination of protections and direct current conduits)
  • Ability to create customized databases of photovoltaic panels and photovoltaic inverters up to 12 MPPT

 

SURGE PROTECTIVE DEVICE

The optional SPD module allows the following operations:

  • Sizing and verification of class I, II and I + II surge arrestors (SPD), according to the CEI EN 62305 standard, with calculation of the maximum protected lengths of the conductors leaving the switchboards, with or without the presence of a LPS on the structure to be to protect.

 

DIRECT CURRENT

The DC optional module allows the following operations:

  • Sizing and coordination between protection devices and direct current lines as a DC supply and also as an AC / DC converter.

 

ARC FLASH

The new optional ARC FLASH module allows the following operations:

  • Analysis to classify the working distances under voltage of the switchboard, with the possibility of analyzing all the starting points of the switchboard to define the most onerous situation and classify the switchboard according to the levels established in the IEEE 1584-2018 standard.
  • Allows the printing of labels to be affixed on the switchboard for the purposes of assessing the risk of electric arc and highlighting the DPI to be used during the maintenance operations under voltage.

 

KNX

The new optional KNX module allows the following operations:

  • Management of KNX systems, with definition of backbone, areas and lines, with automatic addressing including power supplies, couplers and actuators, with the possibility of automatic or manual assignment of channels to be used on the electrical system.

 

COMPUTATION AND ESTIMATION

Module for cost estimates management, estimative metric calculation, estimates, and applications with reference to a linked Data base. Direct printing, printing on data files in ASCII format, in “RTF” format, in “MS Word” format, in “MS Excel” format.

 

Customer component

It realizes the Customers and Jobs management and it produces related documents.

 

CAD drawings

It allows the reading and the analysis of files in dwg format. It can produce, as a result of the association between blocks and one or more data bases, an automatic metric calculation relating to analyzed drawings.
