Afterwards, the design model is used as the benchmark to ensure that the finished facility operates precisely as designed. Paladin DesignBase models serve as the technological foundation for some of the world’s most demanding facilities, including multitrillion-dollar financial data centers, air traffic control installations, offshore oil platforms, medical facilities, and other sites with mission-critical requirements.
The incentives announced under the “Throw the Switch” program include:
- Software “trade-In” pricing: For a limited time, Power Analytics is offering qualified users of competing power systems modelers the one-time ability to switch to Paladin DesignBase 4.0 for the same price they would otherwise pay in annual maintenance for their existing software. Because annual maintenance is typically 10 to 20 percent of the initial price of software, power systems designers could, as an example, upgrade to a basic package of Paladin DesignBase – typically costing $2995 – for less than $1000.
- Half-price model conversion: Power Analytics is offering new customers under the “Throw the Switch,” program a 50% discount on model conversion services, cost-effectively getting them a new, up-to-date model of their facility that can serve as the technological foundation for live, real-time diagnostics.
- Free, discounted training: For each license purchased, “Throw the Switch,” customers will receive a free seat in the company’s “Power Systems Modeling Essentials” course, and a 50 percent discount for each additional seat; tuition is normally $1600 per student. The course is a three-day, hands-on workshop that teaches users how to build a power systems model, as well as perform studies for power flow, short circuit, protective device coordination, arc flash, and other engineering tasks… and qualifies for IEEE Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Customer sites with more than 10 users should contact Power Analytics for a tailored, on-site training course on the customer’s site.
Some terms and conditions apply to these offers, and prospective users will be asked to provide proof of their annual maintenance agreements. Visit www.PowerAnalytics.com/switch to request more details on this limited-time offer.
