Flux Power Grid Equipment Webinar Series

Designing Reliable MV & HV Power Grid Equipment

Presented by:  Guillaume Lai - Application Engineer - EM Solutions


This webinar was presented on 15 March 2018

Brief Description 

Aging transmission infrastructure has to be modernized to deliver electricity more reliably and efficiently. Asset owners of the ecosystem such as manufacturers, service providers, and government offices have to consider the multiple challenges around energy transmission.

The analysis of cables, lines and bus bars involves several physical domains and constraints such as magnetic, electric, thermal and power networks fields. From transmission lines to power transformers through to insulation equipment, Altair provides software solutions for in-depth analysis and accurate prediction for reliable energy transmission.
