The ELEK Cable HV software is ideal for calculating custom cable ratings. We've added the FEM module to version 5.0, which performs 2D finite element analysis for buried cable systems.

ELEK Cable HV Software is for custom cable current rating calculations in accordance with IEC 60287.

With the new Version 5.0 release, we have added the FEM module which performs 2D finite element analysis for buried cable systems.

The finite element method (FEM) is the most accurate for HV cable current rating calculations and now it's available for our users.

The new FEM module allows users to model installation conditions that extend way beyond the limitations of the IEC Standards.

Completely custom installations can be modelled which includes:

1. Multiple backfills - which are zones of soil with different thermal resistivity.
2. Filled troughs - concrete troughs of any size, buried at ground level or below ground and filled with soil with custom resistivity.
3. Multiple circuits in any arrangement - any number of cables or cable types in any configurations.
4. Direct buried cables or in ducts.
5. Non-isothermal ground surface - very important for accurate current rating calculations especially for shallow cables or soils of low resistivity.
6. Automatic meshing where the FEM calculations are completely automated for the highest accuracy.

Simply add objects to the model, specify their properties and move the objects of the model using the mouse (or key cursors) into any custom configurations.
