Transmission & Distribution Line Software


ETAP Transmission and Distribution Line Design and Analysis Program calculates conductor electrical parameters, sag and tension-temperature characteristics, conductor ampacity-temperature characteristics and ampacity derating-temperature characteristics of overhead transmission and distribution lines.

In this module for the transmission circuit studies, a comprehensive model of mutual coupling effect between different line circuits is employed to allow accurate modeling of the system. A user-friendly graphical interface displays the layout of circuits and ground wires for transmission tower and overhead lines. It is an easy to use tool for sizing transmission and distribution lines, designing new transmission and distribution circuits, and verifying the parameters of existing overhead lines.
