primtech - intelligent substation design

engineering tool for the design of 3D “BIM” substations

primtech is a CAE[1] tool for electromechanical design and assembly of electrical substations. It provides a fast and intuitive interface that allows the integration on a single platform of all phases of a project, from bidding up to detail engineering and editing.

[1] CAE: Computer Aided Engineering

The main objective of this document is to provide the various actors involved in the creation of substations, functions and objects, supported by a database of more than 3500 equipment from the main manufacturers: circuit breakers, transformers, disconnectors, etc.

The design is done by direct implantation of the apparatus and equipment in 3D on the plane, which facilitates the early detection of errors such as interferences, insufficient minimum distances, duplicate components …

L’automatisation des tâches telles que les distances, connexion des câbles, vérification des phases, génération des plans, génération de la liste de matériels, etc., apportent en plus de la vitesse, la sécurité et la précision.

With primtech, during the engineering and design phase, the time saving is more than 50% compared to traditional methods.

Thanks to the completeness of the primtech design, the listings and the documents obtained, the bidding and purchasing phases benefit from considerable time savings.

primtech provides the right tools for performing typical tasks on a sub-station, while facilitating execution and management.

3D ASSISTED DESIGN OF SUB-STATIONS

One single coherent model

primtech allows to work on the same model during all the phases of the project, by automating the stage of a basic engineering to a detail engineering.

CAD Tool

The graphics editor of primtech is AutoCAD which allows the design of substations in a few clicks on objects like:

  • Connectors & Chains
  • Mise à terre
  • Routes & barrières
  • Structures & supports
  • Constructions

Integration with other software

primtech integrates with other design software [1]. All on the AutoCAD platform. For example, you can use primtech to export 3D models to Navisworks. With some programs such as AutoCAD MEP, primtech works under the same interface, operating as a single program.

Concurrent engineering

primtech permet à plusieurs personnes de travailler sur le même projet en parallèle à travers la technologie Check In / Check Out, la protégeant contre les sur-écritures et optimisant l’utilisation des ressources.

Information based on the cloud

primtech offre la possibilité de travailler simultanément sur un projet à partir de différents endroits partout dans le monde grâce à son architecture en cloud.

Reuse & models

primtech comprend une bibliothèque avec des topologies type les plus communes (DB, commutateur et ½ …). Il permet également générer des projets type personnalisés.

CALCULUS & MEASUREMENTS

primtech makes it possible to carry out a series of calculations & the measurement of all the components of the substation.

Protection against lightning, Calculation of protection volumes in accordance with IEC 62305-1 & DIN VDE 0101.

Phase Checkingde, vérification de la connexion correcte des phases.

Verification of Minimum Distances & Interferences, Model verification to verify the absence of impact and minimum insulation distances according to IEC 60071-2. The safety zones for maintenance can be checked directly on the 3D model. The primtech wizard facilitates error correction.

Line tension calculations, calculationof the forces on the conductors according to the climatic conditions. Editing the installation table.

Short circuit effects, evaluation des effets mécaniques des courts-circuits sur les tubes & les câbles en accord avec la norme IEC 60865-1:2011 / IEEE 605

 

DOCUMENTATION

primtech allows you to edit and manage project documentation from general implementation plans to detail plans, including a list of BOM and references.

primtech automatically edits the list of equipment in Excel format (csv). This list is customizable..

Compatible file formats

primtech allows to work with the most common formats: PDF, TIFF, Excel, CSV, DWG, DGN, DXF…

 

Plans

primtech allows to publish the following plans :

  • singleline diagram
  • 2D Plants
  • Sections
  • Mounting plans
  • Details
  • Grounding
  • Foundations
  • Constructions
  • Cadastral plan
  • Implantation
