Hy I am designing a power distribution board using the OR-ring topology. The board has to carry about 34A per contact
( and 140A in the common nets. In order to route the power nets I have used a copper pour area in all the 4 layers. I plan to use
70um copper for both external and internal layers.

I have checked Saturn PCB design but I am not sure regarding the option "Plane present".
Has this option to be checked when the signal is routed using a copper pour area or when the signal is routed
using a track sorrounded by a ground plane?
Are the "Saturn PCB design" realistic for currents greater than 30A?
Thanks in advance
