Load Flow Analysis

One Program    One Database    One Solution
Load Flow Analysis Software performs power flow analysis and voltage drop calculations with accurate and reliable results. Built-in features like automatic equipment evaluation, alerts and warnings summary, load flow result analyzer, and intelligent graphics make it the most efficient electrical power flow analysis tool available today.

The Load Flow software module can create and validate system models and obtain accurate and reliable results. It can calculate bus voltages, branch power factors, currents, and power flows throughout the electrical system.

Load Flow also allows for swing, voltage regulated, and unregulated power sources with multiple power grids and generator connections. The module is also capable of performing analysis on both radial and loop systems and has an option to select from several different methods in order to achieve the best calculation efficiency and accuracy.
