High voltage projects are complex and involve many different factors, from time to budget to scope. 3D substation design helps you save time and money by enabling you to visualize how your project will look and function and troubleshoot problems during design rather than in the field.
Using 3D design, you can more easily identify costly concerns, such as safe electrical clearances, before a project mobilizes for construction. Digital terrain models enable designers to see a realistic lay of the land modeled with transmission lines to more accurately determine overhead clearance. The increased simplicity and precision of 3D animations are especially useful in complex designs such as static VAR compensator(SVC) and HVDC projects.
In addition to conventional 3D modeling, our team also leverages Integrated Design and Construction (IDC) Modeling, which is a tool that combines 3D models with your project timeline and budget so you can visualize the entire construction process before it starts. The goal is to drive decision-making earlier in the project lifecycle to maximize impact and minimize cost.
4D modeling adds clarity to your designs by combining equipment and specifications into a single model. For certain parts of the design process, conventional 2D drawings are unable to capture the many components that you need to represent in your substation or transmission line design.
