How to Maximize Efficiency in Industrial Operations with ETAP AFAS

How to Maximize Efficiency in Industrial Operations with ETAP AFAS

In Industrial applications, time is money. Quickly identifying faults and restoring assets is crucial to minimize downtime and costs. The ETAP AFAS (Advanced Fault Analysis Software) leverages disturbance records and telemetry data to locate faults and provide steps to restore assets while the fault is being addressed, increasing the chances of a quick resolution. Furthermore, ETAP AFAS seamlessly integrates several other ETAP software applications such as with the centralized relay management software (eProtect), eSCADA, and Intelligent Load Shedding (iLS) to provide a fully integrated solution for managing your industrial system. With this complete solution, engineers and operators can manage faults efficiently, minimize downtime, and maximize operational efficiency.

Learn about ETAP Automated Fault Analysis Software

ETAP Automated Fault Analysis System (AFAS) solution provides Real-Time and advanced analytics of electrical faults for your complex networks. Using the ETAP digital twin combined with disturbance records, engineers and operators have a clear forensic picture of any electrical fault in the network. Using proven ETAP analysis solvers, AFAS identifies faults, including fault type, start time, protection trip time, fault magnitudes, and fault distance/impedances. A novel signal injection features allow users to playback recorded data into the protection model to compare "as designed" vs. "as found" relay response. This comparison using ETAP electrical digital twin is used to validate system response per the configured protection scheme, and the sequence of operation was followed within expected time durations.

Learn how the ETAP FlickerMeter Calculator improves power quality

Learn how the ETAP FlickerMeter Calculator improves power quality

FlickerMeter is part of the Power Quality applications in ETAP. FlickerMeter allows importing CSV-formatted data files and analyzes up to 20 signals at each run, to evaluate flicker compliance against emission limits. Flicker calculations comply with IEC 61000-4-15 which is the standard for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and the calculation provides instantaneous, short-term (PST), and long-term (PLT) flicker indices based on a voltage waveform loaded into the calculator.
