ETAP Power System Monitoring & Simulation (PSMS) is at the heart of the ETAP Real-Time power management system. Power System Monitoring & Simulation is the smart choice for both small and large electrical utility systems, generation plants, industrial sites, manufacturing facilities, and off-shore oil platforms.
  • Intelligent Monitoring

    Intuitive, intelligent, and integrated real-time monitoring via a state-of-the-art interface.

  • Predictive Simulation

    Predict system behavior in response to operator actions and events using real-time and archived data.

  • Event Playback

    Evaluate cause and effect investigations, system operations, alternative actions, and "What If" scenarios.

  • Energy Accounting

    Detailed energy consumption and cost analysis based on energy tariffs and power market exchange information.

  • Load Forecasting

    Predict and trend system loading based on algorithms that adaptively correlate input variables like weather conditions.
