Bentley Substation is a design tool for substation design. It uses Promis.e functionality for the electrical design. Integrated into the application with is a range of additional tools allowing users to create the 3D physical design of the substation. All of the drawings exist within the same project and sharing the same database. This results in easy navigation between the different drawing modes and shared attribute, part data, and reports. Bentley Substation is unique in that the 3D physical model and the Electrical drawings are all created with the same application and sharing the same common project database.
In addition to the Promis.e functionality and 3D functionality of the MicroStation-based platform, Bentley Substation has specialized design tools for substation design in a 3D environment:
These are in addition to the standard benefits of 3D modeling which can speed design and approval while eliminating interference and positioning design errors.
