Substation Design Suite™ (SDS) consists of two powerful electrical substation design modules. Harnessing the power of Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD Electrical, SDS gives you specialized substation design tools for intelligent 3D design and intelligent wiring design.
Substation Design Suite™ Physical extends the power of Autodesk products to provide the necessary capabilities to automate the design and specifications of a complete intelligent 3D substation design.
SDS saves designers time by automating certain substation-specific modeling tasks with specialized substation design tools for above-grade, below-grade, and equipment design.
Model-based design combined with automation of routine tasks and design checks significantly reduces costly human error in the electrical substation design process.
Because SDS is built on Autodesk products, it offers an established platform with which electrical designers are already familiar. This extensive base of skilled software users can quickly become highly productive, minimizing the high cost of training and the turnover experienced with proprietary platforms.
At an affordable purchase price, SDS leverages your Autodesk product investment into a specialized electrical substation designing workstation. It offers tremendous value by improving designer productivity and providing better information to improve construction effectiveness.
Substation Design Suite™ Protection & Control (SDS P&C) extends the power of AutoCAD Electrical to provide advanced electrical substation design capabilities necessary to fully layout and specify an electric substation.
A substation design that would have normally taken seven weeks was completed in seven days!
Protection and Control designs that used to take two months are now completed in a few days.
