Making circuit diagram in LaTeX

  1. Oct 3, 2011 #1

    I'am having problem making one line diagrams (Power Systems) in LaTeX, I will manage but it shure is troublesome and time consuming.

    I'am using the package tikz and circuitikz. Attached is a preview of what I would like to draw, and the code assosiated with it.

    What I would like is some sort of function/style for the "bus"(thick line), where each bus is a node with anchors assosiated with it. Where the node anchors are easily accessible for drawing connecting lines. Anyone got some ideas for a solution?

    I believe many textbooks use latex in their drawings, but is does not seem to look like circuitikz symbols. Are there any other packages out there for drawing electrical diagrams?

    look to the ctan website

    most often though, another graphics package is used to make the diagrams as an image that gets imported into the [itex]\LaTeX[/itex] document.
