ReticMaster is a PC based program that runs under Microsoft Windows 7 and 10 operating systems. The latest version is recommended.
Hard Drive space of 50 MB is required. Memory requirements are as per required for the operating system.
There are 3 editions to choose from:
ReticMaster Plus (unlimited busbar / node),
ReticMaster Basic (500 busbar / node limitation),
ReticMaster Lite (100 busbar / node limitation)
ReticMaster can handle any voltage modelled in a network and allows for a totally mixed system.
Low voltage (LV<1000V)
Medium voltage (1000V<MV<44kV)
High voltage (HV>44kV)
Integrated system with no modules – all features are included in all editions.
Powerful point & click interface makes the application easy to use
Using background images to do geographical placement of nodes
Automatic single line diagram generation capability
Electrical connectivity is modelled in the data which enables efficient network tracing
Dynamic calculations with each node placement – Calculations are extremely fast
All results are always available at all nodes after a calculation
Displayed information fully customisable
PSS/U + other if users have requirements
Any OLE enabled system can link to ReticMaster to use its engine
Combined High, Medium and Low voltage technologies, simulations with unbalance and diversity include:
Delta or Star, 2 to 4 wire systems (120° Phase displacement) modelling,
1 phase systems (Phase to Neutral) modelling,
Single Wire Earth Return systems (SWER) modelling,
Dual phase systems (180° Phase Displacement, two phases & neutral).
Radial / Limited Mesh System Analysis
Any user defined voltage level (e.g. 275kV, 132kV, 400V, 120V)
Full technology mix
