Learn how utility engineers use ETAP’s transmission & distribution system analysis and optimization solutions to optimize capacity planning and improve reliability and safety using schematic or geospatial views. ETAP Grid™ transmission system software integrates transmission network planning with detailed substation models, network topology processing, transmission system analysis, electric SCADA and real-time transmission network energy management system. For integrated distribution network analysis, system planning and operations solution it offers a progressive geospatial platform for simulating, analyzing, operating and optimizing the performance of Utility Smart Grids.
Managing electrical networks is a complicated balancing act between equipment from various vendors, new sources of power, and the increasing need for high-quality power. The digitalization of energy systems is key to providing efficient, reliable, and safe energy. The Electrical Digital Twin represents the physical components of the electrical network. Connected to field devices, the digital twin allows engineers and operators to manage assets throughout the project lifecycle, run what-if scenarios assessing equipment response under specific conditions and analyze & optimize settings and procedures in a safe virtual environment.
Alpine Energy Case Study – Building a model for today and the uncertain tomorrowTo maximize the benefit from our ETAP models, we developed a system that makes use of the available features to provide structure to our system models, and allow flexibility to deal with future model expansion and changes. The foundation to achieving
this objective was the establishment of a naming convention and model structure that would enable the loading of models and data handling processes to be done with ease. Further enhancing our use of ETAP, we make use of templates and color coding
linked to the themes to match the real world network in the modelling world. Lastly, the library was built from scratch and has now matured to a stage where new data is phased in and updated during the validation of models. Following our investment
in building our models, in order to maximize the benefit from our ETAP, we developed rigorous processes to ensure accuracy and consistency in building models and managing data. Once data is updated, we utilize ETAP to run Load Flow, Fault Level and
Protection Coordination studies and rely on ETAP multi-dimensional database capabilities to set financial years, switching configurations and add new proposed loads to the relevant configuration year. Combining the above features and processes, we have established a disciplined and rigorous Network Development Planning process using ETAP. This has enabled us to plan for the future in an efficient and effective manner. Our ETAP models are benchmarked against actual power system conditions by collecting historical demand data (voltages and currents) from smart meters at customer level, power quality measurement devices at distribution transformers, protection relays at substations, and our SCADA system. But this is not the end, we have developed a future roadmap for our ETAP models with plans to fully integrate with our geospatial information system and our supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) environment, to utilize protection coordination, and build smart scenario wizards to do the hard work for us.
ETAP Solutions for Distribution Systems Solutions offer integrated distribution network analysis, system planning, and operations on a progressive geospatial platform for simulating, operating, and optimizing the performance of Smart Grids.
