    Dear all,

    For load flow analysis, short circuit, Arc flash calculations, Harmonic load flow, Protection and automation,
    Motor acceleration I advice you to try software EA-PSM. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtl3YJ4F1Jj4x-UDA4XF0tQmvgp5Rp_yX

      Hi Vytautas
      The Windows version is only available in the mentioned website, I badly need a macOS version.

      I used to work on etap but since now using macOS I’m looking for an alternative.

        Sir, I need a complete course module & tutorial for “AutoDesk Simulation Mechanical 2015” of various stress analysis. This software is most useful in our applications like analysis of LV panels and Modular panels structural mechanical stresses and internal electric-thermal stresses etc. Pls, find it and send the material booklet in PDF format.

        Thanks & Regards,

    There’s AutoCAD plug-in “MeteorSpec” that calculates the specifications of cables.
    Program has a Data Library where all the data about the cables you use are saved.
    Program can generate reports as specifications (summarized lengths per cable type) or as explications (list of all cable with detailed information).

    The program can be configured to use in any field of design where calculation of total lengths and total areas is needed.

    Look at Autodesk Exchange apps. https://apps.exchange.autodesk.com/ACD/en/Detail/Index?id=appstore.exchange.autodesk.com:meteorspectrial_windows32and64:en
