ETAP Predictive Simulation Modeling Using System Operating Data

Jun 6, 2017
Houston, United States

The ETAP User Group will meet at the Office of Bechtel Corporation

User Group Description

  • Social (5:30 pm): Introduction of the hosts and attendees  
  • Presentation (6:00 pm): System modeling combined with measurements data are essential to the design validation and operational effectiveness of any new or existing power system.

    Power system predictive simulation using ETAP is the first step to validate the designed model and provide functionality to perform “what if” scenarios to forecast outcomes of actions. Plant Engineers and Operators can use the same ETAP design model to perform predictive simulations using actual operating data as the initial baseline.

    This presentation will demonstrate the many benefits of predictive simulation modeling using ETAP and how to use operating and archived plant data to predict system behavior.

    Key Benefits:
    - Validate Design Using Actual System Measurements
    - Predict System Response Based on Operator Actions
    - Identify Potential Operating Problems
    - Perform “What If” Operating Scenarios

  • Open discussion
