Hello

A low voltage electrical installation is similar to an industrial process for electricity distribution and needs a supervisory and monitoring system that is able to increase reliability and optimize management.

To achieve integration between conventional plant engineering techniques and control systems for the purpose of running, controlling and monitoring civil and industrial installations in a centralized and automatic way, one can consider the electrical installation as being affected by two flows:
1) a main flow (energy flow) formed by the power and energy supplied to the users and loads of an installation through the line conductors and control and protection devices;
2) an information flow (digital flow) formed by all the information, data and commands required to control and manage the installation.

Does "one can consider the electrical installation as being affected by two flows" mean "one can consider the electrical installation to be affected by two flows" or "one can regard the electrical installation as affected by two flows"?

What do you think?

In my opinion, it is a mix of "consider something to be" and "regard something as", which means the same.

Thank you.

Charlie B is right. Technical writing is providing information. You are not trying to persuade. Keep the statements short and affirmative.
