Design, Analyze & Operate Green Energy Power Systems with ETAP

The use of renewable energy is not new. More than 150 years ago, wood, which is one form of biomass, supplied up to 90 percent of our energy needs. As the use of coal, petroleum, and natural gas expanded, the United States became less reliant on wood as an energy source. Today, we are looking again at renewable resources such as wind, solar and geothermal and finding new ways to use them to help meet our energy needs.

ETAP enables designers and engineers to conceptualize the collector systems, determine wind penetration and perform grid interconnection studies. ETAP includes comprehensive renewable energy models combined with full spectrum power system analysis calculations for accurate simulation, predictive analysis, equipment sizing, and field verification of wind and solar farms.

ETAP Real-Time allows for a logical and smooth transition of the design model into an operator / dispatcher tool for monitoring, controlling and managing power throughout the generation network.

ETAP puts you in control of your renewable energy generation in order to maximize output and improve efficiency:

  • Dedicated generation farm HMI
  • Generation management system
  • Environment monitoring
  • Wind turbine performance monitoring
  • Solar panel & inverter performance monitoring
  • Prediction of system response to operator actions
  • Sequence of events
