Software calculation program
ARCAD's Short Circuit Analysis calculates and considers electrical parameters for supply as well as distribution for electric power systems.
ARCAD Inc.’s Short Circuit Analytic (SCA V1.0) software program for short-circuit analysis performs available fault currents calculations in three-phase electric power systems. The program takes into consideration electrical parameters of the power supply as well as the power distribution system including utility, cables, bus ducts, transformers, generators, motors, and more. SCA automatically converts the entire system into a unique impedance unit from which the short-circuit current at every point is calculated.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
