Welcome to the Substation Design Automation (SDA) Learning Center.  Our mission is to educate and inform individuals on the application of new tools and concepts in utility design.  The content in the SDA Learning Center is designed to teach viewers how to solve application-specific problems and illustrate new concepts for designing in AutoCAD Electrical, Inventor and the Substation Design Suite tools.


Transitioning from AutoCAD to AutoCAD Electrical

Unlike AutoCAD, AutoCAD Electrical requires intelligent schematic symbols and wires to produce reports and annotate wiring diagrams. If your traditional AutoCAD designs lack sufficient schematic information to create cable reports and wiring diagrams fully, it must be added to your designs in some way. This video will explore two methods of adding missing schematic information into your designs to achieve connectivity between control panels.
