Integrated ADMS Solution

ETAP ADMS is a combined planning and operation solution to manage, control, visualize, and optimize electrical power distribution networks.

Challenges, Trends & Solution

An innovative design alone does not ensure a well-built data center that will remain efficient and reliable throughout its life cycle. For each phase, proper care and action are required to meet the mission-critical facility's business needs continuously.



Scalable and modular solution to manage, control, visualize, optimize, and automate utility distribution networks from large cities to rural cooperatives.



  • Build and verify actions and control logic using ETAP Digital Twin simulator before field deployment.
  • Identify root cause and finding remedies for issues arising during the operation for normal, non-routine, and emergency situations.
  • Develop competency, improve confidence, and increase knowledge of operations staff for better and safer system performance.


  • Integrated with ETAP Microgrid Energy Management System for customer edge or distributed energy resource control.
  • Intuitive and modernized operator’s user experience for Dispatchers, Planning Engineers, Reliability Analysts and Managers.
  • Improved situational awareness with intelligence to provides efficient and reliable grid analysis and management during rapidly changing network state.
  • Interfaces to third-party applications for Crew Management, Storm Management, and Estimated Restoration Time.
