ElectroBIM is an add-in that adds a number of electrical engineering improvements to Revit.
Single-Line Diagrams: Create your Revit MEP model and one-line or riser diagram simultaneously. Automatically keep your single-line diagram up-to-date as your project changes.
Feeder Sizing: Feeders are sizes automatically based upon the upstream overcurrent protection (OCP) for a piece of distribution equipment. You have complete control of the chosen feeder size and can override it when necessary.
Branch Circuit Sizing: Branch circuit breakers and wire sizes are sized automatically based upon the connected load. Breakers for motors can be sized based upon equipment FLA, BCSC, MCA, and MOCP. You have complete control of the breaker and wire size and can override it when necessary.
Fault Calculations: Available fault current is calculated for each piece of distribution equipment. The calculated fault current can be used to set the AIC rating for the device.
Voltage Drop Calculations: The voltage drop is calculated between each piece of distribution equipment. Feeders that exceed the maximum 3% voltage drop allowed can be resized.
Arc-Flash Calculations: Arc-flash calculations are performed at each piece of distribution equipment. An arc-flash schedule can be created that displays the calculated values. Arc-flash warning labels can be printed to be put on devices in the field.
