ElectricalOM Update 2017.06.27.02

We have updated ElectricalOM to version 2017.06.27.02. To update the software, run it 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 2017.06.27.02

Some of the features of the new version are listed below:

1. Plan design additions

1.1 Auto insert and associate circuit from symbols insertions

Automate the creation of the schematic diagram while inserting plan design symbols.

Step 1: Insert the symbol. Before insertion check the option "Auto create circuits after insetions".

1.3 Plan design environment improvements

We have update some parts of the plan design environment to make it more user friendly and intuitive. In particular the improved environment includes:

  • Customizable tools strips
  • Grouped functions
  • Selections highlight and Selections grips visibility

2. Power factor correction unit cable sizing in accordance with IEC 60831-1 and IEC 60931-1

Extra considerations are now been made when calculating the design current for the Power factor correction units, in order to comply with IEC 60831-1 and IEC 60931-1. In particular based on the above standards the Power factor correction capacitors shall be able to operate under steady-state conditions with an r.m.s. current value up to 30% higher than their rated current (this is due to the possible presence of voltage harmonics in the network). Also, the above standards specify that a tolerance of +10% on the capacitance shall be admitted. Therefore, a capacitor bank can absorb a maximum current of:
