Our software automates the calculation of design loads and the checking of strength according to most international standards (ASCE, NESC, IEC, CENELEC, etc.). This has been possible because of Power Line Systems close involvement over the past 30 years with the organizations that developed these standards and the feedback from the electric companies that require their use.
The standard edition of PLS-CADD is a line design program that includes all the terrain, sag-tension, loads, clearances Read More +and drafting functions necessary for the design of an entire power line. Also includes PLS-CADD/LITE and PLS-CADD/ULTRALITE, but not any of the other items listed. Compare Editions
Optimum spotting option: enables automatic selection of structure locations and types for the least cost design of a line.
SAPS finite element sag-tension option: provides a superior alternative to the built-in ruling span sag-tension.
Simplified edition of PLS-CADD for calculation of sags and tensions in a single span, thermal ratings and structure loading trees for a single Read More +structure. Included at no charge with the standard edition (compare editions). Includes PLS-CADD/ULTRALITE, but does not include the terrain modeling, material or drafting functions of the standard edition and is based on the ruling span concept.
