Model-Driven Platform

A platform for continuous design and operation in all stages of a power system life cycle - from original concept through specification, design, integration, test, commission and in-service support.

  • A single platform with integrated applications
  • Advanced power system analytics
  • Design & operational insights
  • Probe alternative actions - What-if analysis
  • On-going learning & training simulator for operators
  • Root-cause identification of operating problems

Unified Multi-Dimensional Foundation

Unique to ETAP is the transformation from a flat database into a multi-dimensional database that allows for unlimited graphical presentations, status configurations, base & revision data, and operational parameters within the same project database.
