SEDS Enhancements

The Secondary Electrical Design Software (SEDS), developed during Program 7 and enhanced during Programs 9, 10, 11 and 12, has been successfully used by the DSTAR membership to perform electrical calculations, such as voltage drop and flicker, for multi-tiered, single-phase and three-phase secondary systems. SEDS employs a drag and drop-style user interface that is very simple to use and affords users tremendous flexibility. As users have grown accustomed to SEDS, they have continued to ask for increased functionality. In this project, the DSTAR membership has requested some improvements to the three-phase load database, some GUI enhancements, bulk editing importing of data, and the handling of seasonal coincidence factors.
