Device name duplication early in design, broken links for cross-referencing between components, and time consuming component generation, these are just some of the mind numbing errors that happen when generating an electrical design in low quality CAD software. These mistakes that take an enormous amount of your time to fix, are just the tip of the iceberg. This article will dive into the wonderful calamities that all electrical engineers eventually run into. And just for fun let us make it the 10 Most Common Mistakes in Electrical Design Software.
What is CAD? What is CAE? What is CAM? What are these softwares and how are they different from one another? The first thing to know about all three of these systems is the first two letters in each abbreviation. “CA” stands to Computer-Aided, which means that all three systems are created to help the user to achieve his goal faster by using the power of computers for processing. The last letter for CAD, is Design, for CAE, is Engineering, and for CAM, is Manufacturing. These are engineering and manufacturing software programs. Each one is has its own purpose. The article will dive into a high-level look at all three systems and how they are used and their overall purpose.
Power distribution systems need detailed care and consideration when planning and designing. The power system is crucial to keep day to day operations functioning properly. Let us look at some of the important aspects distribution system planning and design.
Technology is growing at an impressively exponential rate leaving past innovation as a distant memory. Electrical design has evolved over the decades from using scratch paper, to draft schematics, to the use of CAD software. The original automobile was essentially a horse and carriage that transformed into a gas powered vehicle that travels at speeds that could never be achieved by horse.
