Smart Distribution Management is all about quality and reliable energy delivery to the consumers. To ensure that, distribution network utilities must be able to recognize real-time the exact state of their network for any operational violation and the exact state of consumers’ connectivity for any service interruption.
Revisiting ILS benefits at PT Newmont after a decade in service.
In this presentation we showcase the hardware-in-the-loop simulation testing procedure of one of ETAP’s real-time smart grid solutions, AGC (Automatic Generation Control). The ability of AGC to respond to varying operating conditions on the grid is demonstrated and the set-up enables testing under several “what-if” scenarios.
Intergraph PP&M and ETAP have offered an electrical engineering and design solution that combines ETAP’s enterprise solution software for electrical power systems with Intergraph’s SmartPlant® Electrical with a bi-directional interface to solve these design challenges. This partnership gives you the flexibility to either start with the detailed design in SPEL, validate thru ETAP and update the design in SPEL as needed, or start in ETAP with the distribution design and move from there to SPEL for the detailed design part of the work process.
ETAP has been used as backbone Software for all Electrical Studies in Toshiba Plant Systems & services Co. (TPSC) since 2001, hence integration of ETAP to Single Database is of significance and implementation of the interface is on-going. Engineering Tools Setup and Integration Project (ETSIP) structure will be presented where all disciplines are connected to a single database to enable concurrent engineering, reduce lead time and man-hours, and to increase quality of the engineering and design.
This webinar, by analyzing the protection against indirect contact in ac (50/60-Hz) low-voltage power systems by automatic disconnection of supply, seeks to clarify both the terminologies and each type of grounding system adopted in IEC standards, with the intent to create a common reference for practicing engineers in the matter of bonding and earthing of power systems.
ETAP makes the creation of multiple configurations and operating modes for the system being modeled easy once the model has been created and then the available incident energy for each bus in each configuration can be determined and compared. The worst case incident energy and corresponding personal protective equipment (PPE) can be put on arc flash labels to be applied to the equipment.
We think of the Electrical Infrastructure as a bi-directional “transactional energy” machine. Residences, Commercial/Industrial Sites, Airports/Ports, Campuses are all candidates for deployment of Distributed Energy Resources. Some of these sites due to their critical nature, or pure economics, may consider even becoming a Microgrid. How can PI+ETAP be used to help optimize/manage DERs/Microgrids by the user
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.
This presentation discusses the modeling of two large fossil fuel generating stations in Texas. One station was constructed with UFER grounds, zinc ground rods, and insulated conductors for connecting the zinc ground rods. Different techniques employed for successful solutions within the existing capabilities of the ETAP grounding module and interpretation of results will be presented.
This presentation will discuss how Microgrids can deliver enhanced reliability, energy and cost-efficiency, as well as environmental benefits. This presentation will highlight how ETAP software was used to design and model a microgrid consisting of new and existing infrastructure.
Network Rail owns and operates the main line railway infrastructure of Great Britain. Approximately half of the network is electrified, including a substantial DC electrified network in the South East, fed by a 33 kV HV three-phase network. Network Rail has transferred its standard system models for this HV network to ETAP. This presentation gives an overview of the use of ETAP for this system, and the challenges for the future.
ITER is a large-scale scientific experiment to demonstrate if it is possible to produce commercial energy from nuclear fusion. From conceptual design to construction design ITER uses ETAP at each project stage. The presentation will describe how ETAP is currently used, for manufacturing parameters validation, as well as transient analysis for plant systems scenarios validation. Next project steps, including testing and commissioning using ETAP as support tool will be discussed as well as pilot case of ETAP Real Time implementation.
The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded a major microgrid contract to the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) at the University of California, Irvine in collaboration with ETAP, MelRok, and Southern California Edison. The goal of the research is to establish protocols and specifications for a generic microgrid controller (GMC).
This presentation will discuss how the recently updated ETAP unbalanced load flow feature has been used for analyzing the effects of an open-phase fault on several TVA nuclear power stations.
ETAP and industry experts from the ETAP NUUG, successfully enhanced the ETAP Unbalanced Load Flow module to be able to model and analyze the effects of both single and double open-phase faults.
This presentation will describe some of the Rumaila Oil Field gathering methods, calculations, limitations, relay protection reviews, and future plans of the ROF electrical distribution system. The ROF ETAP electrical model will support a safe, reliable, documented, and analyzed electrical distribution system and expanded to arc-flash calculations and the ETAP Real-Time.
This presentation will showcase KOC Electrical Information Manager System (EIMS). The main objective of EIMS is to automate the process of reserving power supplies and updating by interfacing between GIS and ETAP programs in all KOC Assets.
An in depth discussion Microgrids can deliver enhanced reliability, energy and cost-efficiency, as well as environmental benefits. This discussion will walk you through the key drivers for "why a microgrid", "what types of microgrids there are" and "how a microgrid is developed"
DeltaSE has been tasked with updating some facilities to the latest standard by providing Arc Flash analysis, field assessment and training to our Clients utilizing ETAP. This presentation will highlight how ETAP was used as a tool to help our clients and discuss some of the challenges ahead with low voltage arc flash hazard assessments.
