Line Rate

Advanced iterative calculation methods. Standard IEEE 738

Perform bare overhead conductor rating calculations.

Calculate steady-state and transient line ratings for overhead conductors. Current-temperature relationship in bare overhead conductors of any type. Conductors database. Easy to use.


Calculation Modes:

  1. Steady-state conductor temperature.
  2. Steady-state thermal rating.
  3. Transient conductor temperature.
  4. Transient thermal rating including short-circuit conditions.
