OeS 6 software is intended for modeling and calculation of radial and multiply closed power networks, under operating and short-circuit conditions. The program’s computational capabilities allow for the analysis of the operation of HV, MV and LV networks within one model. The program is also equipped with modules supporting the selection of protection settings and determining the load capacity of cables depending on the installation conditions. OeS has always been created as an engineering tool – it is characterized by transparency and simplicity of use, while maintaining a full range of computational functionalities for the implementation of analytical and design tasks.

Individual OeS software modules allow you to perform power flow and short-circuit calculations, which are an indispensable element of every project or connection expertise. Available functionalities enable, among others: proper selection of devices with regard to operation in operating and short-circuit conditions, solving problems related to reactive power compensation or assessment of the operation of the neutral point. They also support planning the expansion of the existing network and help in making connection decisions. In the OeS software, you can quickly perform calculations for any network configuration, which opens up great opportunities for users to create multi-variant analyses.

Functionalities related to modeling and analysis of network security operation have also been developed for many years. The user can analyze the sensitivity and selectivity of protections, determine their response times, and assess the risk of shock. Additionally, OeS can be equipped with the PROKAB module, which allows for the creation and calculation of the longitudinal and transverse profiles of the cable and the determination of substitute parameters for overhead lines. Another additional element is the GRAFIK module, which allows for the modeling of consumers taking into account the variability of the load over time (operator’s tariff or measurement data) and the modeling of prosumers taking into account the variability of their generation. The possibility of using the ENTSO-E database (climate years) has been implemented here, taking into account the weather forecast in the calculations or entering measurement data. Computational functionalities allow for the analysis of time histories of power and branch currents, voltages in network nodes, losses and other network parameters.

Line profile and cable ampacity

The module allows you to model any cross-section profile of a cable routed in the ground or air. Various ways of arranging the bundle, culverts and banks of culverts are available to the user. For a defined current path, temperature calculations can be made for a given current load or the allowable long-term, occasional or periodically variable load capacity can be determined. The temperature distribution is presented in heat maps.

Defined transverse profiles can be used as components of the cable’s longitudinal profile, additionally defining the length of individual sections and the method of earthing the sheath. Functionality The longitudinal profile allows you to determine the coefficient of additional losses and determine the load capacity of the cable resulting from its entire route. The module also supports the selection of screens and surge arresters. Additionally, the implemented functionalities also allow for the optimization of the length of crossbounding zones.

The PROKAB module also allows you to determine the parameters of substitute overhead lines. Based on the line model – poles, phase conductor system and lightning conductor system – the user can determine, among others, the consistent impedance and the zero impedance of the line.
