Our client was asked to implement the findings of their Arc Flash study, which had been produced more than ten years ago following the IEEE 1584-2002 edition and without accurate power system modeling. In some areas, the study outputs
resulted in very onerous PPE requirements and would make essential maintenance tasks challenging to perform. Upon reviewing the Arc Flash Study report, we identified several issues that resulted in high uncertainty around the results.
ETAP 22 was used to model the power system in greater detail, validating short circuit currents and generating an entirely new set of Arc Flash results according to the IEEE 1584-2018 edition. The increased confidence in the results
provided a firm foundation for implementing meaningful changes at the site to reduce the risk associated with arc flash hazards.

In North America various entities have published guidelines and standards to push for electrical safety in the workplace. The emphasis has been on electrical hazards for shock and thermal energy release from arc flash events in documents
such as NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584. In Europe, the electrical safety culture has also evolved leading to the publishing of localized standards and guidelines. Determining how to comply with localized standards such as EN50110, and
DGUV-I 203-077 may be puzzling. We will explore how using ETAP one can comply with local European directives for arc flash studies. Additionally, we will touch on some key differences between the applicable North American and European
electrical safety guidelines.

I frequently review hundreds of pages of reports of arc flash studies. During those reviews, I categorize findings that need follow-up into four groups: spelling and grammar, data input, report layout, and the most consequential ones,
inconsistent results. On a few occasions, I caught significant mistakes in the accuracy of the results, and labels had to be recreated. ETAP Arc Flash Calculator is a practical, easy-to-use graphical tool that helped me find significant
errors. We will discuss a practical example on a GE Prolec transformer where the initial study results were significantly incorrect, resulting in an inaccurate label being printed using legacy software. We will compare the accuracy
obtained from ETAP with the erroneous studies. Moreover, we will review the critical data in an arc flash study that led to significant errors in incident energy & PPE requirements on printed labels.
Thierry EpassaElectrical Engineering Director, EEEngineering
Current transformer (CT) saturation can occur during high-fault current situations. This phenomenon can impede the proper operation of protective relays resulting in misoperation or increased tripping time. Correct CT accuracy class
selection can reduce or sometimes eliminate this situation. Historically, In the past, electromagnetic transients software has been used to evaluate current transformer saturation and its impacts on protective relay operation.
ETAP has a similar calculation available to users. This presentation will review a small generator protective relay system to evaluate the anticipated CT saturation. The results will then be compared to a transient electromagnetic
analysis and further discussed.

ETAP and EnergyTron are working to integrate GIS data into power system software for brownfield projects. This integration can help to streamline the design process and make it easier to account for the limitations imposed
by existing infrastructure and road layouts. GIS data can provide valuable information on the location, size, and condition of existing electrical assets, as well as the terrain and other features that may affect the
design of the power system. By integrating this data into a power system software like ETAP, designers can more accurately model the existing electrical network and evaluate the impact of proposed changes. However,
it's important to note that the success of this approach will depend on the accuracy and completeness of the GIS data. Inaccurate or incomplete data can lead to incorrect assumptions and flawed analysis, which could result
in suboptimal or even unsafe designs. Overall, the integration of GIS data into power system software has the potential to greatly improve the design process for brownfield projects, and I look forward to seeing how
this technology further develops in the future hand in hand between EnergyTron and ETAP.

Victor AndradeVP of Business Development, ETAP
This study analyzes a high-voltage short circuit in scale cascade transmission lines in real-time. ETAP software was used to simulate the network where ETAP Real Time was critical. This work presents a load-flow study and a transient
and steady-state analysis of a short circuit event in the grid. The experimental validation tests were conducted in the Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Laboratory at UTEC. A comparison of the simulation and the experimental tests
were made to evaluate the predictability of the study. Some of the results were validated with significant differences produced by electrical phenomena such as harmonics. The novelty of this study is the simulation of a high-voltage
short circuit with experimental validation since this cannot be replicated on a real scale.

Load Shedding and demand curtailment are critical for preserving essential loads and avoiding widespread system outages. This power balancing strategy should be based on an integrated fast-responding system that considers process and
power system dynamics. An incorrect or insufficient response to a disturbance, such as a fault or a system islanding event, can cause excessive shedding or total system blackout. These significant and sudden disturbances result
in extensive operational disruptions and costly recoveries. ETAP Intelligent Load Shedding ensures fast, safe, comprehensive, and reliable operation using an electrical digital-twin foundation with embedded predictive
analytics, adaptive optimization algorithms, and action validation.This presentation will cover the need & case studies for a model-driven load-shedding solution from implementation to benefit recognition in oil & gas,
data centers, wastewater treatment, and manufacturing facilities.

position is Senior Vice President of Project Execution and Delivery.
Load Shedding and demand curtailment are critical for the preservation of essential loads and avoiding widespread system outages. This power balancing strategy should be based on an integrated fast-responding system that considers
process and power system dynamics. An incorrect or insufficient response to a disturbance such as a fault or a system islanding event can cause excessive shedding or total system blackout. These large and sudden disturbances result
in extensive operational disruptions and costly recoveries. How much to shed and how fast is the answer. Utilizing an electrical digital-twin foundation with embedded predictive analytics, adaptive optimization algorithms, and
action validation, ETAP Intelligent Load Shedding ensures fast, safe, comprehensive, and reliable operation. In this presentation, we will present the need for a model-driven load shedding solution and share user case-studies in
oil & gas, data centers, wastewater treatment, and manufacturing facilities, from implementation to benefit recognition.

This presentation focuses on ETAP's engagement with Fauji Fertilizer Company Limited (FFC) Pakistan in our efforts to replace FFC's existing Electrical Load Management System (ELMS) installed at their Ammonia / Urea Plants' Complex
at Sadiqabad. The power requirement at the complex comprising of two Amm-Urea plants is fulfilled by two gas turbine-driven turbo generators with two more diesel engine generators kept on standby to cater for the tripping of one
or both turbo generators. To manage load and avoid power failure, they installed an ELMS that smoothened plant operations and avoided production losses. This system was commissioned in 1992 using PLCs.
FFC aimed to replace their existing ELMS with a new-age, fast, and intelligent system and integrate IEDs on Modbus/IEC61850 for real-time monitoring/load calculation. ETAP Intelligent Load Shedding System (iLS™) emerged as FFC's
obvious choice because of the ETAP digital-twin platform and model-driven solution, which enabled FFC to meet the load-shedding requirements effectively. Before this upgrade, ETAP had performed electrical network studies for FFC;
thus, a detailed and validated Electrical System Model was available with FFC. The idea of converting this model from offline to online and extending ETAP enterprise platform with iLS solution made this a natural choice for ELMS
upgrade. Also, the real-time load flow analysis of ETAP system provided a good understanding of the load profile in FFC's network, which was an added benefit.
This project was planned in two phases, wherein Phase I included IED integration and PLC upgrades. Phase II involves having some additional I/O's to merge another stand-alone relay-based load shedding system with ETAP iLS based ELMS
to have a single system for Load Management.

Drakenstein Municipality is a local municipality in the Western Cape province of South Africa, serving more than 250,000 customers. They were in search of a capable OEM partner who could provide them with end-to-end support in establishing
a SCADA main station in their control center to supervise and operate the distribution network of the Drakenstein Municipality Dalweiding substation supply area. Scope included adequate provisions for the configuration of the SCADA
main station system towards an integrated substation protection and control solution using IEC 61850. The IEC 61850 network would be used within substations for both protection peer-to-peer and local automation and would be interfaced
via a substation RTU to the municipal control center using the IEC60870-5-104 protocol. The new SCADA main station at the municipal control center will be implemented in various phases. The first phase is establishing SCADA at
the control center and connecting five substations. The next step is adding DMS & OMS capabilities to the SCADA system. ETAP, the Enterprise Electrical Platform for Power Systems with a digital twin and model-driven foundation,
was the obvious choice. The modular and scalable ETAP platform encouraged the customer to adopt the system, as they can scale up the ETAP SCADA system to meet their need for a Distribution Management System quickly in the future.
This project was executed to meet the customer's objective with the help of Altek Solutions (ETAP system integrator in South Africa).

Red Sea Utility Grid is in the Tabuk province of Saudi Arabia. The site is a vast 33,000 km2 of islands, lagoon, coastal plain, and mountains with highly diverse marine life and terrestrial landforms. Four renewable rich, and permanently
islanded microgrids are designed to achieve high reliability with redundancy at various levels. The microgrids were sized to be fully supplied by solar energy to maximize sustainability. However, backup generators provide support
if solar PV generation is compromised due to severe weather conditions or an equipment failure. Due to the size and number of distributed energy resources (DERs) used in Red Sea microgrids, an advanced collaborative control approach
was needed to control the voltage and frequency of the system. In addition to primay voltage and frequency control, secondary voltage and frequency control functions are employed by ETAP microgrid controller (eMGC™) to coordinate
and manage active and reactive power within each microgrid. Soft energization of the microgrids has been adopted to perform black start and avoid transformer inrush currents. A new black start function has been developed for the
ETAP microgrid controller to orchestrate the black start, coordinate dispatch of DERs, transformers, and loads to fully and reliably restore the microgrid system.

The study was performed for three years: 2020, 2023, and 2030, with fuel-based generation dominating in 2020 and renewables taking the lead by 2030. Three worst-case operational conditions were identified each year, then investigated
for several systemic contingencies. ETAP multi-dimensional database structure, including revisions (to store future grid expansion), generation/loading categories, and configurations served as the base to organize this study. Appropriate
dynamic models for exciter, governors, distributed and large-scale PVs and BESS were chosen from the ETAP UDM global library and incorporated into the system model in this project. The behavior of these models during initialization,
scenario contingencies, and the debugging process while working with several dynamic models will be discussed. The presentation will also cover ETAP Wizards and the SQLite database export feature as great tools for batch-running
the simulations and exporting the results.

An off-grid microgrid can effectively integrate various sources of distributed generation (DG), especially energy storages and renewable energy sources (RES), to run a system as green as possible. Considering the intermittent nature
of the RESs and load variations, effective control methods are required to be implemented for the proper generation of power from microgrid sources to meet the demand and regulate the frequency and voltage of off-grid microgrids.
Learn how the ETAP Microgrid Controller (eMGC) solution leverages a model-driven approach for design, validation, and automation of off-grid microgrids. In this session, several functions of eMGC including active and reactive power
control, optimal dispatch, secondary frequency control, and secondary voltage control will be demonstrated. Besides, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test will be conducted by deploying the logics developed in digital twin of eMGC
into the actual eMGC hardware.

Estimating carbon emissions, or the CO2 footprint, is a critical global concern due to its direct correlation to climate change. Governments worldwide are implementing initiatives and incentives to reduce CO2 emissions in various sectors,
including generation plants, transmission and distribution grids, and industrial facilities.
As a company committed to promoting sustainable practices, ETAP recognizes the importance of reducing CO2 emissions in the electrical network sector. To assist its users in assessing the amount of CO2 their electrical networks produce,
ETAP is developing a CO2-footprint calculator which will enable users to track and analyze their network's carbon emissions, identify areas for improvement, and develop strategies to reduce their network's carbon footprint.

The incorporation of Distributed Generation (DG) into the distribution system presents problems due to the variability of renewable generation sources, time, location, type, and severity of faults that may occur, among others. Therefore,
system operators must be able to monitor, estimate and forecast the state of the network. In the present work, the real-time simulation of a DG system is performed using ETAP-RT software, which allows for predicting the system's
behavior under different events based on the data recorded in real-time. First, a digital twin of the Lucas Nülle DG system from the Smart Grid F-CIYA laboratory is developed. Then, four events are considered using the "what
if" module: MV grid contingencies, single-phase transmission line failure, increased demand in the industrial sector, and inclusion of DG in a local distribution system. This last event is an exciting contribution to the planning
and operation of the network since it allows the evaluation of the behavior of the local system in the event of DG entry.

Currently, Phu Quy island is being supplied by power sources such as a diesel plant with a capacity of 10 MW, a wind power plant with a capacity of 6 MW, and a solar power plant with a capacity of 0.8 MW. The load demand is expected
to achieve a capacity of 8.4 MW in 2025, and 14.9MW in 2030. The island expects to install two wind turbine generators of 10MW and a solar power plant with a capacity of 2MW to meet the load power demand in 2025. However, renewable
energy often depends on weather conditions such as solar radiation and the wind's speed. Therefore, the diesel power plant must be the primary energy source. Adapting to the continuing load and the need for renewable energy to
be scaled in the future, it was necessary to study the size of the Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to support Phu Quy hybrid system and optimize the cost for the diesel power plant.

Fuel cell and electrolyzer systems are used in various applications, from small-scale homes to large-scale grid levels. Those systems can be used for grid support applications such as frequency regulation, avoiding unwanted tap changes
for voltage fluctuation, PV-wind system energy smoothing, hosting capacity, energy arbitrage, maximum uses of renewable energy, reducing transmission congestion, high ramp rate (duck curve), net zero energy-emission, uncertainty/dispatchability,
24/7 power supply, virtual power plant, reliability/resiliency, and so on. Typically, DERs are complex non-linear elements that introduce inverter interfaces and complex multi-objective problems in power systems. Moreover, the
interconnection needs to follow grid codes. However, manufacturers do not provide high-fidelity circuit model data for DERs which can be used to simulate and validate their operations accurately. Vendors may have their own proprietary
black box models. Moreover, considering density, efficiency, and price, system-level feasibility mainly depends on the proper sizing of the resources. In the proposed presentation, these and associated challenges will be discussed.
In addition, the presentation will also discuss fuel cell modeling in ETAP (cell level), and its operations in different power system studies.

Manual Grid Code analysis is a time-consuming process with excessive number of stand-alone calculations. Further, grid code study requires elaborate knowledge of the grid requirements. In many cases, the grid code is not completely
clear; and sometimes, it is complicated to interpret. ETAP Grid Code solution offers several tools to automate the grid code study. This solution generates comprehensive self-explanatory reports with required information and insights
regarding the plant capability versus the grid requirements. In addition, ETAP offers an extensive library of pre-defined grid codes in terms of the various rules that are employed by the automated grid code analysis to easily
compare plant performance against grid code requirements. Finally, etap offers its own Power Plant Controller (ePPC). The digital twin of ePPC can be used within etap to perform grid code study. This ensures that the true performance
of the system is evalaued and studied.

Washington State University is working in collaboration with IIT and ETAP for the development of benchmark test feeder systems under the DOE UI-ASSSIT project. Two test feeder systems are designed in both ETAP and MATLAB. The test
systems designed in ETAP include IIT rural benchmark feeder and a modified IEEE 123-node system. Two different software's are used for the validation of the results. IIT-R developed the rural feeder in Simulink; however, the same
system was implemented and verified using ETAP software. The rural microgrid is a grid-connected system. The distributed energy resources (DERs) are added to study their impact on the performance of the microgrid. Modified IEEE
123-node test feeder has a nominal voltage of 4.16kV, consisting of around 123 nodes and DER, with single-phase and three-phase distribution lines and loads. It is modified for multiple distribution studies. This presentation will
demonstrate load flow, volt-var optimization, etc. using ETAP.
The demand of electricity is growing up day by day. The present generation is trying to find new modes of electricity generation and their proper distribution. Solar SCADA is playing very important role to enhance the operation of
a power system and ensure perfect coordination between various component in the solar plant. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system to capture real time data from all electrical components and do the monitoring,
analysing and control operation to optimise energy usage. PV SCADA system is a heart of the PV Solar/Renewable Plant. It will ensure the operational stabilities and reliabilities of the power plant during its life cycle period.
The system is also able to monitor and control remotely (Web Server), resulting in more efficient control of user work as well as rapid decision to minimise damage potential when an interruption occurs.
The Power plant controller and its grid connection can be tied to a supervisory control and data acquisition system. This allows the visualization of the collected data, providing the plant operators with a Human Machine Interface
(HMI) to monitor and control the renewable energy generation plant.
The Solar performance model integrated with SCADA for performance test to demonstrate, the Solar Photovoltaic Independent Power plant can generate energy and achieve the performance guarantees as defined by concern agency/PV module
manufacture. Another role of SPM (Solar Performance Module) to calculate the plant availability of Solar Photovoltaic Independent Power Plant in-line to the present condition.
Large power plants are desinged and operated to maximize reliability. This is typically done by having multiple points of interconnection and networked configuration. In case of a failure or loss of one point of interconnection, the
plant can be reconfigured by closing a coupling breaker and transferring power to another point of interconnection. However, to ensure optimal operation of the power plant, it's important to have a reliable control system that
can handle such real-time changes in system configurations. Traditional PLC-based and non model-driven control systems struggle with such real-time changes of the configuration.
ETAP Power Plant Controller (ePPC) is a model-driven solution that simplifies the control and management of multi-network power systems. ePPC can handle real-time changes in system configurations, enabling the controller to adjust
quickly to any changes in the power network, ensuring optimal operation of the power plant. Additionally, ePPC uses a digital twin concept that allows for easy configuration and simulation of different system setups. The use of
the digital twin concept means that any errors can be identified and resolved before implementation, ensuring efficient and effective setup of the power plant. Overall, ePPC offers a valuable solution for controlling multi-network
systems, providing real-time control with simple setup and reliable operation.
