Motor Starting Software

Motor Starting Simulation

The Motor Acceleration module provides engineers with a robust tool to evaluate the starting, stop, and restarting of motors and other loads. Motor starting analysis includes the ability to transition the entire power system from one loading state to another loading state.

Advanced tools within Motor Acceleration include functions for changing the percent loading of machines and to sequence-start machines. Analysis includes static models and dynamic models as well as the simulation of Load Tap Changers. Load applications include synchronous and induction motors as well as Motor Operated Valves (MOVs).
