Economic Overhead Conductor Sofware (EOCS)

Proposed is a project to develop a software program for determining economic overhead conductor selection curves to be used by utility engineers and technicians for selecting the lowest life cycle cost conductor installation based on existing or anticipated present load (equivalent peak kVA) and expected load growth (%/year). The developed program will be a Windows-based software tool which will allow the utilities to prepare lowest life cycle economic conductor selection charts considering installation costs, loss costs, and change out costs.
