User-friendly Electrical Modelling

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Etap is very useful for an electrical engineer, and is fantastic to model electrical systems. It allows you to complete many different types of studies, from load flow to arc flash, grounding, and many more. Certain modules are sold separately, such as the harmonic study and motor starting modules, which is fine, but can get expensive if you need all of them, but only sporadicly. Customer support has been pretty good, they will assist you when you have technical questions on how to model certain things, or if the library does not have a specific model of breaker, for example.

Vorteile:

- Etap has a wide variety of equipment that can be connected - The help function is very well put together, for every single user interface window - Highly customizable for reporting

Nachteile:

- Sometimes difficult to print a Single Line Diagram as intended - VFDs typical show overloaded, even if the rating of the drive matches the motor, and that issue has not been resolved, as far as I know, even if it was pointed out several years ago - Training from etap is a must to use the software properly, especially the case scenario options

ETAP Software for Electrical Engineers

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I am working with Arc Flash Hazard Study to generate Arc Flash labels. Hence need to use Short-circuit, Protection co-ordination study software's as well.
I am very much impressed with the software builder keeping in mind the user flexibility and moreover libraries its tested and provides users on Electrical components like relays, breakers etc.,

Vorteile:

User friendly, flexibility to open. Abundant library files for each electrical components like relays, circuit breakers, etc., Running the program and easy understanding of the analysis at the finger tip of the user

Nachteile:

Hardlock dongle makes it difficult to enter the power plant in Middle east, instead it should have be software controlled dongle. In Middle east Power plants controlled by Military team it is not allowed to enter USB or pendrive or any external harddrive devices. Hence request to look into the solution of Software opening with softlock key. Even though some of Library files are available with ETAP team, it is not send as a whole package with the latest Software version, need to request the same through the ticket. When Arc Flash is running it takes couple of mins to come back to normal screen. Instead an progress bar display will help user to understand the estimated time to complete calculation.

ETAP Review

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It is an excellent package and its my right hand. I could not do my jobs without it.
Also thanks for the outstanding tech help!!!

Vorteile:

I can make a model very quickly and run cases as fast as can design them. Allows for quick answers to customer/management questions.

Nachteile:

Having dongle identification trouble. I have to reset License Manager EVERY time. The regular start cannot see it. Run LM and then I run ETAP. Printing setup could be easier to use. Having trouble with printing output not changing. I have a ticket open now on it. Would to turn off data from certain buses and lines. I do not need to see all when it turn it on in the display options. Just certain buses. It muddies the screen. TCC could be easier to use.

ETAP reviews

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Etap may be very beneficial for an electrical engineer, and is remarkable to new version electric systems. It lets you to finish many extraordinary varieties of studies, from load waft to arc flash, grounding, and plenty of more. Certain modules are bought separately, along with the harmonic and motor beginning modules. It can however get high-priced in case you want all of them, however simplest sporadicly. Customer assist has been quite good, they'll help you if you have technical questions about a way to version sure things, or if the library does now no longer have a particular version of breaker, for example

Vorteile:

Comfortable while using the software program and smooth interpretation and attractiveness of results." "It could be very beneficial & beneficial device for each electric engineer. High degree Calculations may be accomplished very precisely & with excessive degree of accuracy." "I constantly loved operating with etap due to the high-satisfactory of the software program and correct results. Plus the truth that the reviews do not appear to be from a kind creator the manner SKM looks." "Etap could be very beneficial for an electrical engineer, and is first-rate to version electric systems."

Nachteile:

"Various variations have mistakes that provoke new releases." " Some Problems with distinct faucet changer for parralel application. Its Hard to personalize a TCC curve." "Problems with the installation, the extrade from check model to complete model creates many problems." "It Lacks a few common products (e.g. cable library)."

Kommentare: I have not seen or been exposed to any power systems software that can even come close to comparing to ETAP and the Enterprise Family of Solutions oriented Software.
I use Arc Flash, Transient Stability, Ground Grid, LDFL, Short Circ, STAR religiously

Vorteile:

I have been using this software for 30 years. I have been a ETAP Agent for 20 years. I have not seen or been exposed to any power systems software that can even come close to comparing to ETAP and the Enterprise Family of Solutions oriented Software.

Nachteile:

That is has taken so long to get key modules developed such as Panel and the Distance Relay. It has cost me many oppertunities in sales.

Antwort von ETAP

vor 5 Jahren

Thanks you for your feedback. As the saying goes, "good things take time, greater things even longer" Panel has been around since the earlier versions of our software. Distance Relay took a while to develop, verify, and validate since it does integrate with a lot of other analysis tools in our software suite. We also added a number of distance relays to our library which contain 1000s of settings and match the manufacturer 1:1. The module is now available and we have enhancements coming out in our next release ETAP 19.5.

ETAP Arc Flash Analysis, Coordination Study and Short Circuit Analysis Review

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall the experience is good.
The user interface is straightforward and doesn't require a big learning curve to get started.

Vorteile:

The product is easy to use. The diagram can be easily created with multiple networks as well. Once the network is created, we can carry out a short circuit analysis with a single click. The report feature allows the export of results in multiple formats (pdfs/excel/word etc). Can create a copy of the base case, with proposed or amended case results can be easily compared. Faults can be easily simulated, and thus coordination curves can be easily generated.

Nachteile:

Limitation of the number of buses. If bus sizes go around 300 buses, the network takes a bit longer to run the analysis. The installation process is not simple with matching the key and license. Required help from IT department to get it on my computer. Faults can be inserted however, not of a specific value (overvoltage conditions not possible), only high currents (Short circuit 3PH, 1PH) can be simulated.

I have been using the etap for short circuit, load flows and especially coordination of protection

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

It has a large number of electrical equipment libraries that facilitate simulations. It is extremely practical when using the Star module, since when running the shortcuts it shows in a real way how they cut the protection curves, in the same way it shows in a very dynamic way the performance of the protection equipment (relays, fuses, contactors) in order and time in order to efficiently diagnose a coordination, existing or proposed.

Nachteile:

Given the existence of several libraries, many users could be carried away by the data that has predefined the software and would not be motivated to look for the real field information, I have made simulations with both information to compare and give very similar, but can arrive tend to trust the user in case there may be data that does not match reality. I have had several complications when updating the versions, since once I have updated the document to a latest available version, it does not allow me to open it in a previous version.

vor 5 Jahren

Our modules come with an alert view which will flag the results if they are outside of a certain percentage. This value is set by you and would be a way to check if the results are off. Unfortunately you can only open older projects in newer versions. This is because the library and sql database changes per release.

Very good for heavy industrial power

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: How power large motors on weaker power systems. Simulation of motor starting on large mobile machines. Determination of power quality impacts in the proposal stage. Performed alternate studies to verify alternate power system designs.

Vorteile:

The ability to dynamically model wound rotor motor starting with a time variable liquid rheostat. A good library of multifunction electronic relays. A good library of electronic motor protection relays.

Nachteile:

The library of basic TOC relays is not as complete as other packages. A lot of additional modules to buy and pay maintenance on. The wound rotor induction motor rheostat starting requires a chunk of calculations to get it in the form needed for ETAP. A lot of the ETAP trainers did not understand about wound rotor motor modeling and it took a while to get to the courses needed.
