ETAP Demonstrates Grid Solution for Power Transmission,
Distribution, Smart Grid and Microgrid Operations at DistribuTECH
SAN ANTONIO, Texas – January 28, 2014 — ETAP®, the leading provider of software solutions for electrical power systems – today demonstrated the latest version of its ETAP® Grid™ software platform at DistribuTech 2014.
The upcoming release of ETAP Grid offers a fully integrated foundation of a cutting-edge geospatial views with the most advanced analytical engines for the design, simulation, planning, operation, optimization, control, and automation of electrical power system networks.
A great deal of the development investment focused on a new GIS (geographical information system) foundation merged into a common, seamless modeling environment. The benefit of these advanced GIS capabilities is that utilities and corporations with distributed facilities can not only model the power system from a one-line “logical” standpoint, but also gain a detailed understanding of how it relates to real-world topography.
“For decades, utilities invested in a wide range of standalone software products that solved a very important part – but only a part – of their operational problems,” said Farrokh Shokooh, founder, president and CEO of ETAP. “ETAP Grid integrates those products into a single, unified solution that provides utilities and other organizations with distributed power networks with unprecedented levels of system-wide manageability from the design through operations stages. We believe that it is a technological milestone in the power and energy delivery that will deliver high levels of ROI for our customers.”
