Chapter 13Power and Communications

Modeling power systems with a building information modeling (BIM) solution such as the Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2016 program is just as important to project coordination as modeling systems that contain large amounts of physical data, such as HVAC systems. As with a lighting model, the key component to a power systems model is the data within the model elements. This information determines how systems can be put together. It can be extracted from the model for use in analysis and to aid in design decisions.

There is something to be said for the physical model of a power system as well. Receptacles and junction boxes are relatively small compared to other system components, but with a large number of them in a ...
