LV Design: in-house software that you can use

We developed LV Design specifically to help our engineers, network designers and operations staff quickly calculate the voltage drops, line currents, kilowatt losses and costs in both underground and overhead low voltage networks.

We're pleased to make it available for you to use.

LV Design has recently been updated to provide new functionality to perform batch network calculation simulation on the Western Power LV distribution networks. This enhancement will enable proactive upgrades and voltage management programs to run more efficiently, as compared to manual network extraction and simulation. Further information is included in the LV Design Updates document.

Note: When installing LV Design on Windows 7 and above, it may be necessary to specify the installer to run "As Administrator."
