Utility tools: ABB announces the release of Substation Explorer, a new tool that allows customers to enter known parameters for their high voltage systems into a program that outputs multiple conceptual layouts and suggests the most suitable solution for the application.

The ABB Substation Explorer generates the single line diagrams, 3-Dimensional layouts and a high level Bill of Material for the various solutions. Simply submit a selected design and an ABB representative will contact the customer to discuss the project and help navigate the various options or provide a quick budget estimate.

“Some customers do not have much time to put together a bid package for budget proposals. They need a quick and efficient way to see what options they have for substation layouts,” said Harry Kaffenes, Vice President, ABB Power Systems Substations. “This is a web based tool that can be accessed anywhere. It asks ten basic design questions and selects a substation configuration that best matches the customer¹s needs.”

Interested parties may request access to the ABB Substation Explorer design software today by visiting substationexplorer.abb.com/substationexplorer and logging in with My ABB credentials.

ABB is the world’s leading supplier of power substation projects, delivering more than 5,500 substations rated up to 1100kV since 1900. Substations are the key element for transmission and distribution of electrical energy.

ABB will be demonstrating Substation Explorer at the 2014 IEEE PES Conference and Exhibition in Chicago, at the ABB booth (#6725).
