Paladin® DesignBase™ Protection Coordination programs are designed for coordination of protective devices in 3-phase, single-phase, and DC power systems, including transmission networks requiring Distance Relay Coordination. They provide engineers with very strong, efficient, and fast tools for selecting, comparing, and coordinating protective devices. Programs include:

  • Protective Device Coordination: AC
  • Protective Device Coordination: DC
  • Validated Protective Device Library
  • Impedance Relay Coordination

Program Features:

    • PDC works directly on the one-line diagram or on the user selected protective path
    • EDSA Power Flow and Short Circuit Programs are integrated in the PDC program
    • PDC communicates with Power Flow, Short Circuit program and Motor Dynamic Starting program
    • Intelligent PDC auto-select engine
    • Intelligent search engine that allows up-stream and down-stream protective device coordination
    • Powerful plotting engine
    • Ability to simultaneously work on two EDSA PDC windows: protective path and time-current log-log space
    • Graphically adjustable device settings, with automatic settings display
    • User can enable or disable the device protection function
    • Multi-PD functions can be injected into the same device; the user can disable or enable the protection features in order to generate “what if” scenarios
    • Motor starting curves are either generic or generated by the EDSA Advanced Motor Starting program
    • Unlimited scenarios
    • Direct injection of the PDC data in either network devices or protective path
    • EDSA professional reports: user can report the setting of all devices within the project, or report the settings of all devices within the particular panel
    • Direct fuse and relay data interpolation
    • PDC data settings can be annotated on the one-line diagram or on the PDC network protective path
    • Customized current and voltage scaling
    • Short circuit can be injected at any point in the network to generate device sequence of operation report
    • Easy export protective path and time-current curves to doc files for document purposes
    • A comprehensive back annotation and print functionality
