ETAP Positions Solutions Towards Promising Sectors
ETAP focuses on Wind and Solar modeling as both sectors show great potential.
Irvine, Calif. – September 10, 2012 — ETAP®, the leading provider of software solutions for the design, optimization, and online operation of mission critical electrical power infrastructure, has a module included in ETAP 11 that can handle Solar Farm Modeling and Solar Irradiance.
In 2010, $34 billion was invested in clean energy by the U.S., a 51% increase from 2009. Over $25 billion of the dollars invested in clean energy last year were in the Wind and Solar sectors, two sectors that ETAP has solutions for.
“ETAP’s Wind Turbine Generator software is capable of modeling an unlimited number of wind turbine generators, either individually or in a group,” said Shervin Shokooh, Chief Operating Officer at ETAP. “ETAP’s wind farm software can simulate transient wind conditions with ramp, gust, and noise disturbances and calculate dynamic impact on wind machines.”
In ETAP 11, a Photovoltaic Solar Array module is included that can handle Solar Farm modeling and incorporates a Solar Irradiance calculator along with its comprehensive manufacturer and model library.
Recent clean energy investment rankings have seen the U.S. slip to third behind China and Germany despite recent government pushes promoting non-polluting power sources. ETAP is focused on improving clean energy efficiency whether in the U.S., in China, or in Germany. With over $100 billion spent on wind and solar energy between these three countries, ETAP realizes that clean energy is the primary focus of an increasingly environmentally conscious world.
