Data Exchange Module
The Data Exchange Module provide an interface to
seamlessly share project data between SKM projects and other
software. Exchange format includes Tab Delimited, CSV, and SKM
XML. Also includes an interface to exchange data with Autodesk
Revit and Intergraph SmartPlant Electrical.
Watch the Revit-SKM Data Exchange in Action!
Autodesk Revit is a building information modeling (BIM) software that
enables architects, engineers, designers, and contractors to plan,
design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.
The Autodesk Revit-SKM Data Exchange module provides a convenient and
accurate way for electrical engineers to import electrical data and
connections from Revit into SKM projects. Various complex analyses
using SKM’s calculation engine can then be conducted on the imported
Revit project. The results are saved in the SKM project and can be
exported back to the Revit project. This is a very useful tool for
electrical engineers planning, designing, maintaining and operating a
complex electrical distribution system.
Both software packages work complimentary to each
other by supporting each other’s strengths. The diagram shown
below illustrates the data flow process.
The SmartPlant Electrical (SPEL) Data Exchange Module enables
electrical engineers to import SPEL electrical equipment data and
connections into SKM projects conveniently and accurately. Once
imported, engineers can then conduct various complex analyses using
SKM’s calculation engine. The results are saved in the project database
and can be exported back to the SPEL database.
module is invaluable to leverage the power of SKM and SPEL software for
planning, designing, maintaining and operating a complex electrical
- SKM and SPEL software packages work complimentary to each other by supporting each other's strengths.
- Automate work processes.
- Comply with corporate or project standards and manipulating electrical data throughout the plant and project life cycle.
SPEL projects into SKM software to take advantage of a powerful
calculation engine to conduct various complex analyses of electrical
power systems, such as load flow analysis, fault analysis, harmonic
analysis, transient stability analysis, cable ampacity calculation, arc
flash calculation, reliability evaluation, protective device
The Data Exchange User Interface allows adding or modifying data fields as data is exchanged between the software packages
