The motor starting software is fully capable of starting individual motors or transitioning an entire electrical power system to another state.

The module enables engineers to thoroughly evaluate the impact of load changes to electric power systems.

Sequence-start a series of machines using static or dynamic models, operate Motor Operated Valves (MOVs), and simulate the switching actions of Load Tap Changers.

Advanced plotting and time varying graphical display enable engineers to quickly evaluate results and make decisions.

Motor Acceleration analysis for floating platform

Motor Acceleration analysis for floating platform

Study case with two distant floating units interconnected with a subsea cable and fed by gas turbine generators. ETAP software has been used for motor starting analysis. A discussion about the choice of motor and generator models is developed and the comparison between calculation methods is presented. A particular focus is made on motor starting methods when direct on line is not possible, including soft starter simulation and VSD representation.
