DC CSD Analysis

DC Control Systems Diagram for circuit breaker control circuit
The Control Systems Diagram (CSD) has the capability of determining pickup and dropout voltages, losses, and current flows at any time instance as well as overall marginal and critical alerts. A large library of equipment enables engineers to quickly model and simulate the action of relays associated with control interlocks after given time delays.

DC Control Systems Diagram Software Key Features

  • Graphical animation of complex control logic with or without voltage drop calculation
  • Include time-dependent loads of control systems in battery discharge & sizing calculation
  • Operator initiated control actions and/or auto-run mode
