Overhead power line design
ELECTRA is powerful overhead power line CAD design soft-ware which combines design and documentation production workflows for electrical distribution design. It provides sophisticated design and analyzing tools to opti-mize transmission network designs in plan and profile. De-tailed and comprehensive documentation production is sup-ported within Electra software solution.

|3D TERRAIN MODEL DESIGN
Electra support various digital terrain data from surveying in-struments, Lidar technologies, photogrammetry and other data formats. Electra includes its own digital terrain creation tool to model 3D surfaces for genera-tion of multiple plan and profile transmission lines design.EASY TO USE WORKFLOWS AND
DYNAMIC DATA CHANGES SUPPORT
With its easy to use workflows and design data analysis tools Electra provides user a compre-hensive tool to manage complex design requirements in most productive way. Automatic data update of plan and profile enable users to easily design or edit transmission line geometry and components.
INDUSTRY STANDARDS AND CALCULATIONS
Electra includes build in cables library and load parameters which can be user defined and customized. Catenary calculations and sag-tension analysis tools enable users to design, edit and optimize transmission lines accordingly. Electra complies with EN 50423-3-21 and EN 50423-1 standards.
SAG-TENSION AND LOAD PARAMETERS
Prebuild load parameters and sag-tension values enable users to produce quick designs while editing and customizing options provide reliable customer related or country specific transmission line designs.
DESIGN DATA ANALYSIS
Electra provides safety distances analysis between transmission lines and terrain, enables display of various sag calculations under different temperature conditions and tensile forces. It also supports visual safety distances checks between conductors.
Existing infrastructure analysis tools provide designers comprehensive information related to existing infrastructure that new design is related to. Other transmission lines intersection heights, road, rail and other objects crossing information, projected objects from layout to profile information and more. Objects along transmission line data info and other information is available within Electra tools.
Span, sag and tension reports are included plus detailed plan and profile layout documentation with additional drafting, labeling and other possibilities are supported within the Electra solution.
The Electra workflow consistently follows standard civil engineering design process, which intuitively leads the designer from the start to the successful finish of the project.
EASY TO LEARN AND USE
Well-structured ribbons, menus and simple dialogues enable fast learning for the first time user while the toolbox and command line options are provided for the convenience of experienced users.
SUPPORT FOR LOCAL DESIGN STANDARDS
Electra is available in several languages and supports country specific standards and drawing layouts. Electra customers are entitled to use any country-specific version of the software in case of designing projects for foreign countries.
|TEAM WORK SUPPORT
Projects can be very efficiently divided among multiple team members who can then work simultaneously.
NATIVE CAD APPLICATION
Electra is fully integrated into the CAD environment. All the data are stored in one or more DWG files. The drawings can be modified with CAD commands at any design stage giving you complete flexibility in the design process.
CAD PLATFORM CHOISE
Electra can be installed on top of AutoCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D or BricsCAD, where the functionality always remains the same. In the future additional CAD platforms will be supported. This CAD platform choice gives Electra customers the possibility to optimize their “Cost of ownership” without sacrificing function abilities.
