Incorporated in 1986, ETAP released the first version of Electrical Transient Analyzer Program (ETAP) power system analysis and design software. Today, ETAP is recognized as the global market leader in providing solutions for power systems analysis, design, simulation, operation, control, optimization, and automation.
- ETAP is the only power system analysis software approved for use in nuclear / high-impact facilities
- ETAP released the first 32-bit power system analysis program for Windows
- ETAP Real-Time was launched to meet the growing demands for online system monitoring, simulation, control, and automation
- ETAP has grown to be the world's largest power system analysis software company
- ETAP continues to meet client needs by incorporating the latest advances in power and software technologies.
In 1996 ETAP released the first, true 32-bit, power system analysis program on the market for Windows. ETAP is designed for Microsoft Windows and contains many advanced features including ODBC, multidimensional database, composite network nesting, and more.
ETAP developed ETAP Real-Time to provide online (real-time) monitoring, simulation, control, and supervisory control capabilities. ETAP Real-Time uses real-time data and system topology (ETAP database) to estimate unmonitored power flows and voltages throughout the system.
Along with aggressive development and product maintenance, ETAP utilizes a highly specialized team of engineers to conduct research and development projects as well as system studies.
In recent years, ETAP has grown to include specialized consultants, design engineers, cutting-edge programmers, and an experienced sales staff. ETAP will continue to meet its clients' needs by incorporating the latest advances in technology into both software development and engineering services.
Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art products and superior engineering services by combining advanced technologies with the highest standard in quality to achieve overall customer satisfaction.
