ARCAD's Short Circuit Analysis calculates and considers electrical parameters for supply as well as distribution for electric power systems.


ARCAD's Short Circuit Analysis calcaulates and considers electrical parameters for supply as well as distribution for electric power systems. Courtesy: ARCAD Inc.ARCAD Inc.’s Short Circuit Analytic (SCA V1.0) software program for short-circuit analysis performs available fault currents calculations in three-phase electric power systems. The program takes into consideration electrical parameters of the power supply as well as the power distribution system including utility, cables, bus ducts, transformers, generators, motors, and more. SCA automatically converts the entire system into a unique impedance unit from which the short-circuit current at every point is calculated.
