Understanding Grid Code, Grid Code Compliance Analysis & Reporting with ETAP

Understanding Grid Code, Grid Code Compliance Analysis & Reporting with ETAP

The variable nature of renewable energy introduces power quality concerns, including frequency and voltage control, that may negatively impact the reliable performance of a power system. Grid codes, interconnection, or evacuation criteria must be followed during the proposed system design and continue to maintain compliance under grid-connected operation. ETAP Grid Code is a model-driven solution that includes software tools and control hardware to ensure local grid codes or standards compliance throughout the power system design and operations lifecycle.

Azusa Light & Water Substation SCADA

Azusa Light & Water Substation SCADA

City of Azusa, California, located east of Los Angeles, serves approximately 17,000 electrical customers. The full-service electric division is committed to providing safe & reliable operations to all customers, from residential to large commercial and industrial. In 2021, the department realized the then-existing infrastructure no longer met their needs and expectations. Relying on different systems for various applications, data management and its transfer has proven inefficient and prone to errors as well as the lack of local support; they recognized the potential of ETAP's fully-integrated, unified SCADA platform.

How to perform Short Circuit and Ground Grid Analysis with ETAP software

How to perform Short Circuit and Ground Grid Analysis with ETAP software

Learn how to determine optimal cable sizes, physical attributes, and maximum ampacity using ETAP’s Underground Raceway System module, ensuring that cables in duct banks or directly buried are operating within their maximum potential capacity. The advanced graphical interface allows for design of cable raceway systems to meet existing and future needs by using precise calculations to determine the required cable sizes, physical capabilities, and maximum derated capacity / ampacity. In addition, transient temperature analysis computes temperature profiles for cable currents, reducing the risk of damage to cable systems under emergency conditions. All cable steady-state temperature calculations are based on the Neher-McGrath Method and the IEC 60287 Standard.
