Short Circuit Calculation Spreadsheet – Simple tool designed for data estimation and conservative short-circuit scenarios. In this way, it automatically applies the coefficients and factors of the ANSI and IEC standards, compares the results with the data published by manufacturers and also emits alarms and warnings when the devices exceed their capacity.

The review and verification of standards is ongoing to ensure its permanent validity.

The Short Circuit module and the Protective Selectivity module are perfectly integrated with the Electric Arc module to carry out the calculation of risks due to the presence of an electric arc.
