Design Codes, Standards, and Manuals Used in Power Line Systems' Software

Many of the requirements of the Codes and Standards listed below are hard-coded in our software and can optionally be selected by name. However, you should understand that design criteria in PLS-CADD are generic and can be modified to fit almost any international Code or Standard. If the information you are searching for regarding Codes and Standards is not included below it is because we do not have it. Please feel free to provide updated information or suggestions for additional references.
