ETAP Base Package

Continuous Intelligence Digital-Twin Platform

Core Modules (Base Package)

Core Tools, Embedded Analysis Modules, Scripting, Engineering Libraries and more

The Base Package is a set of fundamental modeling tools, built-in analysis modules, scripting tools, and engineering device libraries that allow you to create, configure, organize, customize, and manage your system model efficiently.

Core tools allow you to quickly and easily build 3-phase and 1-phase AC and DC network one-line diagrams with unlimited buses (license-dependent) and elements including detailed instrumentation and grounding components. Engineering libraries provide complete verified and validated data, based on equipment specifications published by manufacturers.
