IEC_60909 Short Circuit Study
PTW IEC_60909 calculates short-circuit currents using the equivalent voltage source as required by the IEC 60909 standard. With PTW IEC_60909, three-phase and unbalanced fault duties for electrical power systems are calculated in compliance with the IEC 60909 standards for low, medium, and high voltage systems.
- Design safer systems utilizing IEC-rated equipment by complying with IEC 60909 standard for short circuit current determination.
- Improve accuracy by using load flow results or voltage factor table to assign system prefault voltages.
- Eliminate duplicate entry by sharing the same project database and one-line diagrams with other PTW study modules.
- Communicate effectively with one-line datablocks and tabular reports.
- Three phase, single-line to earth, double-line to earth, and line to line faults.
- Earth return current for double line to earth faults.
- Options to use load flow results or voltage factor table for assigning system prefault voltages.
