ETAP Introduces Version 12.5 of its Electrical System Design and Real-Time Power Management System; Free Trial Available for Download

IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

ETAP, the leading provider of software solutions for the design, optimization, and on-line operation of mission-critical electrical power infrastructure, today introduced ETAP® 12.5, an enhanced version of its industry-leading engineering software for the design and operation of critical power systems. For prospective users eager to test-drive the new software, a free trial version of ETAP 12.5 can be downloaded at www.ETAP.com/Demo and used for 30 days.

ETAP 12.5 incorporates a broad and robust set of user-driven enhancements across the ETAP software suite, as well as powerful new analysis modules and time-saving capabilities. Existing and prospective users can register to participate in ETAP Webinars describing these new capabilities at www.ETAP.com/NewRelease.

These new features include:

  • Dynamic Parameter Estimation & Tuning - DPET
  • GOST short-circuit - R 52735 standard
  • New Web consoles for monitoring and predictive simulation
  • Customizable Web console templates
  • Native SCADA communications protocols
  • Waveform capturing and synchophaser measurements
  • New library merge and cable library quick-pick
  • Enhanced analysis modules
  • 3,500+ new device libraries
  • Multi-language editions

"ETAP 12.5 is the next logical step in our quest to deliver the most robust technologies to optimize and automate power system design while increasing the safety, quality, and productivity for which our products are known for around the world," said Shervin Shokooh, Chief Operating Officer of ETAP.

For example, prior to the availability of Dynamic Parameter and Estimation Tuning (DPET) users had to manually tune their electrical models, which could take up to 300 hours of parameter adjustments based on engineering judgments. Now, ETAP 12.5 uses a multi-objective stochastic optimization method to automatically tune a model with multiple inputs and outputs saving the engineer hundreds of hours. The enhanced Scenario Wizard includes the ability to simulate "what-if" events including automatically running multiple underground raceway system scenarios to verify results against benchmark reports.


In this version, the ETAP® Real-Time™ solution is enhanced to support electrical management applications using distributed SCADA technologies for applications such as Smart Grid and serving as a microgrid master controller. These applications provide operators, dispatchers, managers, and engineers with capabilities of prediction, control, visualization, optimization, and automation of the electrical power system. In addition, powerful web interfaces have been added to provide the tools to make informative decisions based upon planned or unplanned events from any location. ETAP's Faster than Real-Time™ power management system is even more efficient with the addition of direct native communication connectivity offered in ETAP 12.5 release for Modbus® RTU, DNP3, OPC, OPC-UA, and IEC (News - Alert) 61850.

ETAP 12.5 is available now and includes multiple-language support that is localized in seven languages including translated output reports in eight languages; English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Korean and German.
