Integrated ADMS Solution

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


Concerns & Challenges




Unified Decision Support Environment

Model, update, and maintain an accurate network model

Single Integrated Network Model
ETAP platform allows for a digital representation of the operating conditions of the electrical distribution network that is used as a single shared network model across various stakeholder for simulation, planning, monitoring, control, and operational optimization.


Bridging the OT & IT Gap

Integrated OT and IT environments
ETAP ADMS bridges the gap between Operations Technology (OT) - Grid assets, infrastructure and applications with Information Technology (IT) - Situational Intelligence for rapid and informed decision making.

  • 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.

Grid Modernization

Safe and effective decentralized energy delivery & management in the digital grid

Digital Grid Solution
ETAP provides advanced decision support capabilities for safe and reliable operation of the distribution network by integrating visualization and electrical distribution network applications to proactively reduces peak demandoptimizes network assets, while assisting distribution networks deliver electricity more efficiently, reliably, securely, and economically.


Assess the operational impact of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) across a distributed grid

Integrated Distributed Energy Resources Management
ETAP ADMS solution integrates with DERMS to proactively consider the impact of voltage support on high DER feeders, and to provide volt-var optimization and feeder capacity hosting calculations to determine the best optimization in coordination with DER dispatch and operating load across the gird.

  • Integrated with ETAP Microgrid Energy Management System for customer edge or distributed energy resource control.
  • Scalable and modular solution to manage, control, visualize, optimize, and automate utility distribution networks from large cities to rural cooperatives.

Track & Restore Outages

Improve emergency response, reduce restoration time, and inform customer about outages

Outage Management System
OMS provides operator assistance by identifying probable locations of the fault in the network and recommends the fault isolation and switching actions to clear a fault. Network restoration duration is reduced by predicting failures of isolation devices and providing information on extent of the outage and number of customers impacted.

  • Intuitive & 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 ManagementStorm Management, and Estimated Restoration Time.
