In September of 2011, miscalculations of electricity supply and demand caused a sudden, nationwide power outage in South Korea. It impacted nearly 1.62 million households, trapped about 3,000 people in elevators, and temporarily shut down hundreds of factories, banks, shops and other businesses. Lawsuits against Korea Electric Power Corp. totaled more than $14.5 million. This kind of mistake with extreme consequences is a lesson for all electrical engineering organizations that require precision, high performance and effective knowledge management for success. Can your engineering processes prevent a similar situation from developing? Are you able to provide sufficient documentation to mitigate your mistakes? The right calculation software can be a powerful tool that enables engineering teams to more easily solve problems, generate ideas, share important data and catch mistakes before they have major consequences.
PTC Mathcad Prime is a much better alternative for performing complex calculations and understanding the intent behind them. Your best interests lie not with the incidental information that spreadsheets provide, but with mathematics software that treats your calculations as key business assets. Those who do step up to modern math calculation programs, are often amazed at the results – and how easy it is to hit the ground running.
PTC Mathcad Prime provides engineering teams with shareable documents that explain everything they need to know about the design process, including text, interactive math calculations, graphs, and actual drawings and models. Reusable worksheets can be saved in several formats, including Microsoft Word, Adobe® PDF, HTML and XML, making it easy to share information with a variety of stakeholders, even if they’re using different document management applications, modeling programs and PDM solutions.
Mathcad Electrical Engineering Library adds hundreds of standard calculation procedures, formulae and reference tables used by electrical engineers to the core Mathcad Prime toolset which can simplify and enhance the electrical design and verification process.
