Bentley Substation - Electric Substation Design Software
Maximize efficiencies when your project moves beyond the design phase.
- Speed construction and enhance operations by sharing the 3D model produced in Bentley Substation.
- Use Bentley Substation with other Bentley products to address and improve the whole asset lifecycle.
- Join utilities and EPCs worldwide that achieve lower costs and better quality with Bentley Substation.
Create intelligent substation models
Focus your design process around an intelligent model rather than a set of separate drawings. Create a 3D model built from a database of intelligent objects. Use the model to seed, create, link, and maintain consistency across 2D drawings, electrical schematics, and reports.
Design substation physical layout
Perform layout in 3D using a catalog of equipment objects that snap together at predefined hook points. Move groups of connected equipment as units to change positions quickly. Use built-in 3D tools to design the grounding grid and lightning protection and analyze cable sag, clearances, and clashes.
Design substation protection and control
Produce linked and cross-referenced one-line diagrams, wiring diagrams, schematics, and panel layouts. Speed design with wires that break and heal automatically as you place or remove symbols. Save time and increase quality with automatic wire numbering, device tagging, error checking, and more.
Estimate substation materials
Create reports automatically with a parts database that connects every 3D object and electrical symbol to detailed parts data. Publish accurate bills of materials, wire length reports, purchase order lists, and more. Update these reports quickly to keep up with design revisions.
Generate substation construction deliverables
Produce 2D construction drawings automatically from the 3D substation model. Define and publish plan, elevation, and isometric views using configurable drawing templates that promote company standards. Eliminate hours of manual updates by simply republishing drawings when design changes occur.
