Automationforce provides electrical substation design toolkits that extend the capabilities of Autodesk® Inventor® and AutoCAD® Electrical software with discipline-specific content, workflows, and design rules.
Substation Designer for Autodesk Inventor software for 3D physical design, and Substation Designer for AutoCAD® Electrical software for the relay protection and controls design, enable utility companies, engineering firms, rail owner/operators, and others to more quickly and accurately design substations by automating much of the process. In addition to the toolkits, Automationforce delivers cloud-based substation design training which is included with the toolkit purchases.
Some of the key capabilities provided by the toolkit for physical design include design checks; drawing package automation; and tools for grounding, bare cabling, trench, conduit, and lightning protection design. For the relay protection and controls design, key capabilities include symbol libraries; raster editing tools; panel layout and panel wiring diagrams; and tools for relay, test switch, and circuit editing.
Users of the Automationforce substation design toolkits can:
Enhance productivity with integrated physical and electrical designs
Automatically produce substation specific bills of materials and reports
Leverage existing AutoCAD drawings and knowledge
Revit Structure and IDAT solutions provide solutions that help extend design information to fabrication and construction
