Smart Grid Dispatching - Demand Management
Time-of-Use Load Shifting
ETAP Demand Management is a comprehensive application for implementing effective load management strategies for electric distribution systems. ETAP Demand Management will calculate a strategy to curtail expected load peaks and avoid excess demand and energy charges from power supplying resources.
Demand Management identifies costly variations in electrical load profiles by determining if and when peak demand usage occurs on a feeder basis. Since demand can often vary hourly, daily, or monthly, specific power purchase surcharges can be reduced or eliminated by pinpointing the source and length of the peak demand usage.
