xSpider Software tool for semi-automatic dimensioning and calculation of low-voltage networks

Graphically oriented design system for dimensioning of low-voltage networks fitted with Eaton circuit protection equipment.

  • Design of TN/TT/IT networks of various voltage systems up to 1000 V.

  • Design of radial as well as meshed networks.

  • Design of networks supplied from one or more different power supplies.

  • Possibility to simulate various operating states of the network by disconnecting power sources and loads.

  • Database of components with transparent tree structure allowing user-defined additions.

  • All calculations (voltage drops, load distribution, impedance, short circuits) are based on IEC standards.

  • Export of graphics intoDXF data format.

  • User-friendly interface. User operation similar to standard CAD systems (AutoCAD).

  • Stand alone software based on Windows platform.

  • Voltage drops, load distribution:

  • Check whether voltage drop does not exceed the user-defined maximum value set locally for every network component.

  • Check of correct dimensioning of the circuit protection equipment and conductors.

Component with error

(current in the line is higher than nominal current of c.b.)

Switch off c.b.

Voltage drop in the node

Current in the node

  • Three-phase short circuit :

  • Maximal short circuit.

  • Check of correct dimensioning of the circuit protection equipment and conductors(check of breaking capacity).

  • Check of whole networkor fault in one node.

Ik3p – initial impulse short circuit current

Ikm – peak short circuit current

Component with error

(insufficient breaking capacity)

  • One-phase short circuit:

  • Minimal short circuit.

  • Calculation of disconnection time check of compliance with the requirements of IEC standard.

  • Check of whole networkor fault in one node.

Ttr – disconnection time

Node with short-circuit
