Design Master Electrical for Revit: Fault Calculations (09/21/2023)

Design Master Electrical RT is an add-in for Revit that adds electrical calculations to your existing Revit model.

Learn about short-circuit analysis in our software. See how we calculate the fault at panels and the factors that impact the outcome.
