In Industrial applications, time is money. Quickly identifying faults and restoring assets is crucial to minimize downtime and costs. The ETAP AFAS (Advanced Fault Analysis Software) leverages disturbance records and telemetry data to locate faults and provide steps to restore assets while the fault is being addressed, increasing the chances of a quick resolution.
ETAP Automated Fault Analysis System (AFAS) solution provides Real-Time and advanced analytics of electrical faults for your complex networks. Using the ETAP digital twin combined with disturbance records, engineers and operators have a clear forensic picture of any electrical fault in the network. Using proven ETAP analysis solvers, AFAS identifies faults, including fault type, start time, protection trip time, fault magnitudes, and fault distance/impedances. A novel signal injection features allow users to playback recorded data into the protection model to compare "as designed" vs. "as found" relay response. This comparison using ETAP electrical digital twin is used to validate system response per the configured protection scheme, and the sequence of operation was followed within expected time durations.
FlickerMeter is part of the Power Quality applications in ETAP. FlickerMeter allows importing CSV-formatted data files and analyzes up to 20 signals at each run, to evaluate flicker compliance against emission limits. Flicker calculations comply with IEC 61000-4-15 which is the standard for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and the calculation provides instantaneous, short-term (PST), and long-term (PLT) flicker indices based on a voltage waveform loaded into the calculator.
The integration of electric vehicles (EVs), PV systems, battery energy storage systems (BESS), and more has presented us with exciting opportunities and challenges. One such challenge is the need for unbalanced network harmonic analysis, especially when dealing with single-phase charging vehicles and inverter controls.
Discover how this powerful simulation tool evaluates, verifies, and confirms the operation and selectivity of the ZSI scheme for different types of faults. The ZSI capabilities empower engineers and professionals like you to take control of electrical power system protection and analysis, enhance safety, minimize equipment damage, and validate arc flash mitigation techniques and scenarios.
Are you curious about the limitations of short-circuit standards and their inadequacy in addressing arc-flash incident energy calculations? In this presentation, we will review the challenges posed by these standards with an emphasis on IEC 60909-2016 and provide you with an explanation of ETAP arc-flash solutions to these limitations.
When it comes to running an arc flash hazard analysis study, it's crucial to identify equipment that may expose workers to high incident energy. One of the most hazardous areas is where line side arcing faults can occur. To address this challenge, Annex 0.2.3 of the 70E 2021 standard outlines various industry-accepted incident energy mitigation techniques. However, not all methods effectively tackle line side arcing faults. During the demonstration, you will acquire valuable knowledge on NFPA 70E endorsed mitigation techniques as well as details on ETAP modeling of the ArcBlok technology.
ETAP 2023 version 22.5 offers innovative solutions and features with numerous enhancements and time-saving improvements, empowering ETAP customers with technology and best practices to be safer, more reliable, efficient, compliant, and sustainable.
As more Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are added and mixed into the grid, the need to effectively evaluate and validate the dynamic response of power systems has become essential for grid resiliency, reliability, and security. In this webinar, learn how ETAP's Transient Stability module addresses the needs and challenges of stability studies for power systems with DERs. The module provides comprehensive analysis of the system's behavior during disturbances, enabling engineers to make informed decisions for improving system stability and ensuring grid reliability.
Cities of the future will soon account for 90% of the world’s population growth and 75% of its energy consumption. The pressure on critical resources will increase. The New Administrative Capital in Egypt launched one of the country’s most ambitious development projects to date, setting standards in smart city living is ADMS. ETAP ADMS will manage, control, visualize and optimize power distribution required to run critical smart services for city operators, citizens, workers, and visitors alike. Learn how ETAP ADMS is utilized to support long-term sustainable, efficient smart city services that will support a safer, more innovative, and more prosperous Egypt.
Arc flash analysis extends well beyond the scope of IEEE 1584 and NFPA 70E methodology for transmission, distribution and renewable energy systems. For many years, the industry has been lacking an “all-in-one” solution for performing arc flash analysis on DC, LV, MV and HV AC systems. ETAP ArcFault™ provides a validated method for performing arc fault simulations in T&D open-air overhead conductor systems plus it provides two methods to determine the incident energy for arc-flash in 3-phase enclosed equipment for 15 to 38 kV renewable energy collector systems. This presentation explains the background and methods for arc fault simulations and explains how ETAP ArcFault helps utilities comply with OSHA requirements to perform arc-flash analysis for systems voltage above 1.0 kV.
How a failure, to properly perform protection studies, led to a significant substation safety incident and outage. Understanding minimum and maximum fault current values are critical in this case study. The shortcomings led to a fault not being removed fast enough. Short circuit impedances are very valuable, it is critical to have the right cables and impedances of the equipment. An excellent learning from this case study is that line to line arc flash fault exists much longer at medium voltage level. In low voltage we do not see those type of line-to-line arc flash faults because line to line arc flash fault will rapidly turn into a three-phase fault. The arc flash calculator is a great tool to estimate incident energy. The arc flash calculator shows both methods: below 15 kv we can use IEEE 1584-2018 to calculate incident energy at 15 Kv, and above our fault calculated method can calculate calories exposure during the fault.
Renewable energy systems continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the energy industry. This presentation focuses on the understanding of how photovoltaic (PV) technology behaves under dc arc conditions. A comparative analysis of the arc flash incident energy calculation method developed in collaboration between National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and ETAP details the effect of PV module I-V and P-V curves under arcing conditions. Examples of the application of the proposed calculation method to the test measurements are included.
