Terminology
Power Systems Model
A software representation of a one-line diagram, in which all components in
the electrical system circuit breakers, transformers, capacitors, bus bars,
and conductors, as well as large equipment like generators, motors, and
UPSs are depicted as mathematical representations. By running
simulations of the model to test for specific problems, e.g. short circuit
analysis, engineers are able to isolate potential issues in the system, until all
have been effectively removed.
Single Line Diagram (SLD)
An electrical schematic in which all electrical elements such as circuit
breakers, transformers, capacitors, bus bars, conductors, etc. are shown by
standardized schematic symbols. Instead of representing each of three
phases with a separate line, only one conductor is represented to depict all
three phases. Also called a one-line for short.

Terminology
Load Flow (or Power Flow)
A Load Flow study simulates flow of power in an
electrical power distribution system during the
design stage. This enables designers to
thoroughly understand the behavior of the
finished design, and provides the opportunity to
optimize loading, eliminate voltage irregularities,
and avoid nuisance events.
Load Flow Studies are crucial in helping facility
managers understand precisely how their power
system will react in situations of high demand or
emergency situations.
Ensure that voltage drop will not disrupt other loads

Terminology
Short Circuit Analysis
A short circuit (sometimes abbreviated to a
short or s/c) in an electrical circuit allows a
current along a different path from the one
intended, established by accident between two
points in an electric circuit.
The current tends to flow through the area of
the least resistance, bypassing the intended
circuit.
It is common to misuse short circuit to
describe any electrical malfunction, regardless of
the actual problem.
