Substation Designing Software Market - Overview
Substation designing software is a tool used for developing conceptual layouts of electrical substations. The software also helps in the selection of the most suitable solution or layout for a specific application. Substation designing software allows to save time and avoid repetitive tasks. The user needs to submit answers for specific questions which will generate feasible layouts as per the response submitted. As multiple utilities have their own procedures, and standards and guidelines for designing substations, user feedback is crucial in the substation designing process. Furthermore, users can opt for a Greenfield or brownfield project which allows them to study multiple feasible options for their substation. Substation automation software helps in better coordination and synchronization resulting in reduced timeline. The software also allows the user to integrate physical and electrical designs for improved layouts.
Utilities are searching for simplified solutions which would help them design the substation of their choice. Substation designing software provides an alternative way of designing a substation efficiently as compared to traditional processes. It is a superior choice compared to the old labor intensive processes which would result in multiple iterations along with extended timeline and increased cost. Majority of substation projects have multiple components in common; these components are provided as ready to build models within the substation designing software. It helps in reducing the time by utilizing ready to use models rather than designing the same models every time. It also helps engineers to focus on the intricate parts of a substation which are highly customized and vary according to the customer requirements and standards. Collectively, the above mentioned factors are expected to drive the substation designing software market during the forecast period. Furthermore, as the software develops multiple models, the user can assess these options and choose the suitable option which would result in optimum utilization of their resources. Legacy solutions are not able to provide such options for users as it would take substantial time to develop even a single model.
With the multiple options provided, utilities are able to evaluate the best possible alternative while having a backup plan if it does not work out. Utilities are able to reduce the risk involved in the substation designing process in case they cannot proceed with a particular design, due to the availability of several options. Substation designing software has powerful configuration capabilities for a better selection process of hardware products as per the changing standards around the globe. The software may also feature a content library which helps users to choose from various off-the shelf designs for their projects. Additional features such as error checks and construction prints help in developing best practices and impose necessary standards. With improved functionality and key value additions, substation designing software is expected to generate substantial demand in the future.
Substation Designing Software Market – Segmentation
Substation designing software are available in multiple forms and can even be customized according to user requirements. Vendors provide packaged software suites along with standalone modules for specific operations. Designing substation models, physical layout, protection and control, materials estimation, and generating construction deliverables are some of the key functionalities performed by the software. Furthermore, the software enables substation designing in multiple formats such as 2D and 3D along with the hybrid model which is a combination of 2D and 3D. As utilities are shifting towards advanced technology, vendors are also providing cloud based solutions which further simplifies the deployment of substation designing software. Users are opting for licensing as well as subscription based pricing models to purchase substation designing software. Substation designing software utilizes point clouds for reference data to simplify the designing process. Also, advanced global positioning system (GPS) technology is used for surveying which helps in developing a robust design. In terms of region, the global substation designing software market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.
