Anyone know of software or info regarding this?

I am looking for info on calculating the available fault current at different locations on a customers electrical system.

Thanks

I currently use SKM Power Tools www.skm.com
I've also used EDSA and ETAP before and they are good too!
I haven't done the calcs by hand in years as the multiple fault contributions in the facilities I design are difficult to manage for me.
