Phase checker – automatically detects all live parts in a substation

This feature allows you to identify the individual phases of live parts including their geometries all across a substation. Each phase is then visually represented by a color (red, green, blue).

Engineering Solution for Optimized Substation Design
of High Voltage Substations

primtech is an engineering software for the design, construction and documentation of substations (air-insulated switchgear).

High-voltage equipment, substructures, cable ducts, wires, tubes, clamps, roads and fences can be easily selected from a comprehensive library and placed as intelligent 3D objects on a voltage-dependent grid.

The automatic generation of BOMs and CAD drawings relieve the designer of routine tasks, shorten project run times and avoid errors. primtech supports the designer throughout all project phases and improves quality and consistency of the entire workflow.

primtech is the solution for substation BIM (Building Information Modeling) and has powerful integrated calculation tools like a Lightning Protection Calculation, Clearance Calculation and Short-Circuit Current - Calculation of Effects.

Benchmark tests have shown that primtech users are more than 15 times faster in some phases of the design of a switchgear project than when other, conventional CAD software tools for designing substations are used.

Users all round the world are enthusiastic about the functionality, which has grown over years and which offers project managers the quick overview they need to make the right decisions.
