Key features :

➜ Calculations and sizing of electrical equipment

Caneco HT performs calculations of admissible currents ;
Caneco HT enables the calculation of Peak short-circuit currents (effective value and peak value) and minimum short-circuit currents (between phases and earth fault), homopolar and capacitive currents ;
Caneco HT calculates voltage drops anywhere in the installation, depending on the impact of loads on the electrical grid ;
It also enables you to size and verify cable cross-sections.

➜ Convenient for simple and complex network architectures

With Caneco HT, you can determine the operating configurations of the installation, whether they are displayed in a hierarchical or a loop network ;
Calculations take into account the worst-case conditions, in order to ensure compliance of the network with applicable standards.

➜ Automatic production of documents

Caneco HT produces calculation files and documents with all the equipment specifications to comply with the main standards: calculation notes, network single-line diagrams, protection settings lists, selectivity curves, etc.


➜ Quality and compliance: 

Caneco HT performs electrical sizing in compliance with national and international applicable standards: IEC 60909, CEI 60502-2, NFC 13-200, VDE 276 and IEC 61363 (for the design of marine and offshore electrical networks).

➜ Time saving: 

Caneco HT automatically produces network single-line diagrams and calculation notes, thus reducing multiple data entry and risk of errors

➜ Tailored to global markets: 

Caneco HT allows the design of international projects thanks to its multi-standard and multi-language options.
