Weekly Feature 1 - HV Transformer Module




The HV Transformer Calculator module is a powerful tool for engineers or designers responsible for the installation, protection and control design of high voltage power transformers.

From sizing the transformer, selecting CT quantities and ratios, to choosing transformer alarms and relaying, the calculator organizes and displays your design on the fly.

By taking you step by step in entering your design parameters of the Power Transformer, the final design, from transformer sizing, protection and control to cabling, is completed by module

The module then produces the following drawings: Single Line Diagrams, Alarm and Tripping Schematics (shown, as well as wiring diagrams, all with the click of a button.



Weekly Feature 2 - Battery Bank and Charger Calculator



This calculator is based on the IEEE STD485 Battery Sizing Procedure. Common applications are whereever protection relays and isolating devices require a DC power source. Typical Generating Stations, Substations, oil and gas plants where continouos uninterrupted power is required.

The calculations performed are based on “Recommended Practice for Sizing Lead-Acid Batteries for Stationary Applications” and “Recommended Practice for Sizing Nickel-Cadmium Batteries for Stationary Applications” IEEE standards. All the calculations in this calculator are established on conventional lead-acid or nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries.

EDM does not support other types of batteries, so the manufacturer’s guidance of sizing these types of battery will be required by the user.

This Battery Bank Calculator works in three easy steps:

    Step 1 - from the Battery Specifications page fill-in the required inputs.

    Step 2 - from the Quiescent Load Summary Page build your continuous load profile.

    Step 3 - from the Momentary Load Summary Page build your momentary load profile.

That's it! Your Battery Bank and Charger sizes are shown on the Battery Bank and Charger Size Page.

You do the same with the cable sizing Calculator and all cable requirement are sized. An added feature is all the protection equipment (breakers, fuses) are also calculated.

One last feature, the program produces a single line and three line CAD drawing to complete your Design!



Weekly Feature 3 - EDM's CAD Features



Imagine a software program that can automate complicated electrical designs.

Imagine a software program that can make managing an electrical design project easy.

Imagine a software program that can produce CAD drawings at the click of a button.

The Electrical Design Management (EDM) software program helps streamline the management of your electrical design projects.

This powerful, easy-to-use program speeds up the design process for transformer sizing, motor protection, equipment wiring, commissioning, as well as equipment and cable schedules - removing the repetitive labour involved in your design projects.Step 1 - from the Battery Specifications page fill-in the required inputs.

Whether you’re an electrical engineer, designer, or an electrician, you will find EDM to be an invaluable tool.
