SPEL Data Exchange Module
New to PTW v8.0
The SmartPlant Electrical (SPEL) Data Exchange Module enables electrical engineers to import SPEL electrical equipment data and connections into PTW projects conveniently and accurately. Once imported, engineers can then conduct various complex analyses using PTW's calculation engine. The results are saved in the project database and can be exported back to the SPEL database. 

This module is invaluable to leverage the power of PTW and SPEL software for planning, designing, maintaining and operating a complex electrical distribution system.
Benefits
1. PTW and SPEL software packages work complimentary to each other by supporting each other's strengths. 
2. Automate work processes. 
3. Comply with corporate or project standards and manipulating electrical data throughout the plant and project life cycle. 
4. Import SPEL projects into PTW to take advantage of a powerful calculation engine to conduct various complex analyses of electrical power systems, such as load flow analysis, fault analysis, harmonic analysis, transient stability analysis, cable ampacity calculation, arc flash calculation, reliability evaluation, protective device coordination etc. 
SPEL screenshot
(Left): Once data has been imported into PTW from SPEL databases like this one, it can be used in all standard PTW calculations.  If any changes are made, they can be exported back to the SPEL database.

For example, if PTW calculates that a larger cable size is required for a feeder, it can be updated in SPEL and incorporated into any switchgear compartment drawings, materials lists or other reports generated by SPEL.  This ensures that any new drawings are issued with the latest equipment information.  
Interface Options
The Data Exchange User Interface allows adding or modifying data fields as data is exchanged between the software packages.
