The module inherits its main analytical and topological functions from base and optional modules of Eaton's CYME software. Taking into account future changes on the system, you will be able to simulate different scenarios (such as addition of loads at a given date (year, month or day), change/replacement of power transformers within the substation, rephasing/reconductoring project, switching or reconfiguration, etc. that will allow identifying and correcting problems related to system growth.
Changes can be grouped to facilitate the viewing and editing of the main project. For example, if a project is delayed, the user can simply move the concerned group of modifications to a different year and see the impact on the whole distribution system. If a project is canceled or put on hold, the associated tasks can be disabled to reflect that situation and the module will flag any abnormal conditions due to this change.
The module’s capabilities are based on the Advanced Project Manager functions which are included in the Automated Network Forecast Analysis module. The combined functionalities support detailed preparation of time-based projects that can span over several years.
Specific analyses and reports can be attached to any group of changes. The engineer can analyze all the alternatives contemplated and easily compare the impacts of each solution.
The module can be used in conjunction with the Techno-Economic Analysis module to allow the user to manage budget on a multi-year time frame while offering a global view of the technical impacts.
The main features of the module include:
The results are presented in an enhanced reporting tool that conveys an overall view of the system over the project scheduled years and allows the user to dig into more detailed data on any part of the system.
With this results viewer, you can generate reports for each distribution line, substation and zone contained in the distribution system.
