Electrical Systems Design

Dassault Systèmes (DS) delivers a unique solution to address thecomplex electrical design requirements of today’s plants. Capabilities range from simple diagrams to major cable pulls. Depending on the design strategy used by the EPCs, DS supports designs that use ladders and cable trays, as well as direct routing through hangers when space is limited.

Leveraging the integration with EDSA electrical simulation application from EDSA Micro Corp.  DS' Electrical System Design solution allows electrical designers to simulate short circuits and manage load capacities. By using its network of diagrams, users can manage and route very large network of cables using a dedicated cable database implementation. Cables are routed as the realization of the logical design in the diagram, taking the pathway of 3D hanger layout into account. The ability to maintain the cable data in the same PLM environment as the rest of the design data provides unique integration.

To support construction by zones, trays and hangers can be structured within the same assembly structure as the rest of the physical parts. This enables higher level of supplier coordination, component delivery and cabling ready for installation. For actual cable pulls, cable lists can be produced from the PLM environment to support the work instructions.

Plant Electrical Systems Design solution includes:

  • Electrical Schematic diagram
  • 3D cableway layout
  • Detailed design with ladder, trays or hangers
  • Cable and wire routing
  • DPM assembly
  • Work instruction extraction (cable lists)
  • Power distribution, simulation, load analysis and outage analysis

Supporting Products: CATIA Drafting and Annotation, CATIA Systems Logical 3D Architecture, CATIA Systems Logical Electrical & Fluidic Design, ENOVIA 3D Live, ENOVIA VPM Central, ENOVIA Live Collaboration

With CATIA, we have reduced the time required to go from idea to reality by a factor of five.
