We use Nevron Diagram for .NET in our client server software that allows Enel’s operational compartments to plan the electrical net; the software enable electrical engineers to find less expensive, but still efficient, solutions for the electrical net. The software works in disconnected mode, as a smart client, and allows the personnel to simulate various configuration of the electrical net; using the client program it is possible to add, remove or substitute pieces of the MT electrical net representation as well as change connection points.
The simulator, then, allows to emulate every single point of failure of the net and for each of them reconfigures the net for the best off-line time (breakers take several maneuvers and counter-maneuvers to operate correctly). At the end of the simulation an animation is recorded for the best solution found (time/price). The animation is then displayed , using Nevron Graph controls, allowing the electrical engineer to check the correctness of the result and the various “moves” that the simulator toke to get to the best solution. When the personnel is then satisfied with the solution it uses the client application to update the remote DB with a request to acquire the needed resources to build this new configuration on the real net.
