SIMARIS® design

Efficient dimensioning

The network design software SIMARIS design facilitates electrical network planning, including short-circuit current calculation, on the basis of real products with minimum input – for network calculation from the medium-voltage supply down to the socket outlet. In addition, the network design software supports calculation of the short-circuit current, load flow, voltage drop and energy balance. Based on the requirements of the specific electric power distribution system, SIMARIS design safely and reliably dimensions a system solution from a broad product portfolio which is in compliance with all the relevant standards (VDE, IEC) and reflects the present state of the art in technology. Suitable components are selected automatically. In addition the software calculates the short-circuit current, load flow, voltage drop and the energy balance. So your network calculation expenditures will be considerably reduced by using SIMARIS design - while providing a high degree of planning reliability.

Easy, fast and safe

Based on the requirements of the specific power distribution system, SIMARIS design safely and reliably dimensions a system solution from a broad product portfolio that is in compliance with all the relevant standards (IEC) and reflects the present state of the art in technology. Suitable components are selected automatically.

 

Convenient and straightforward

Thanks to its user-friendly operation and its excellent options for graphical editing of network diagrams, you will intuitively find your way around SIMARIS design. For direct project implementation, there are user-friendly options for documenting the results of the entire network dimensioning process – e.g. a parts list of the necessary equipment or the network diagram in your desired format (PDF, DXF, DWG). Having dimensioned the network, you can then export the project and import it in Simaris project for further editing.

Convince yourself of the easy and fast application of SIMARIS design (Download) and take a closer look at the functions of SIMARIS design. Our regional consultants will be pleased to provide you with personal and on-site support with any questions on the dimensioning process with SIMARIS design.

The latest generation of SIMARIS design is available in two variants:

  • SIMARIS design 9, the free tool for power distribution dimensioning, is available for download.
  • SIMARIS design 9 professional with additional functions, which make network calculation even more efficient and easy, you can obtain from your contact partner against a nominal charge.
