ElectricalOM Update 2017.04.06.02

We are pleased to announce the ElectricalOM Update 2017.04.06.02. To update, run the software and choose "Download the new version" from the pop up message (See the knowledgebase). Alternatively you can download the new version directly from here: ElectricalOM 2017.04.06.02

Check out some of the features of the new version:

1. Parallel active sources

The engineer can now choose to set parallel active sources. The sources must be identical and feed the same switchboard. The fault calculation analysis has been updated to take into account the fault contribution of each active source.

To set the parallel sources operation you need to follow the two steps described below:

Step1: Activate one of the source in parallel operation and select Functions -> Parallel source operation...

Step 2: Choose the sources in parallel

After choosing the sources for parallel operation, the sources will be set to operate in parallel with identical source characteristics and identical feeding circuit properties.

2. Indian Standard (IS) cable sizing

Users in India can now perform cable sizing calculations for cables as per IS 7078 and IS 1554. Ambient temperature and grouping correction factors have been updated to comply with the Indian Standard.
