PowerCalc is the FIRST Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company to completely automate electrical engineering calculations for the Building, Construction and Facility Management Industries. PowerCalc makes electrical engineering easier, faster, smarter and greener. Just 3 inputs (load kVA, load type and # of poles) per circuit results in over 300 outputs compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC) for the design of the entire power distribution system in a building. That's from the light switch to the power grid. Saves 40% in design time and 7%+ in energy use, with instantaneous changes across the design upstream and downstream (parametric)...all with incomparable accuracy due to its proprietary database (with values already propagated). The electrical design construction documents that used to take days to develop now take just a few hours. And, automatically designs graphic 1 Line Diagram for user to see throughout the design process. PowerCalc is used by engineers, electricians, architects, and general contractors. Covered by US Patent #7,636,650.
