System Reliability Analysis Software

Electrical Reliability Assessment

Reliability is considered one of the most important aspects of operating large industrial and utility electrical networks. With ETAP Reliability Assessment, performing advanced reliability assessment for electrical power systems and thorough distribution reliability analysis for distribution power systems is paramount for estimating overall performance of power systems. Using flexible input parameters as well as built-in library data, results can be obtained for both radial and looped/mesh networks. Well-designed calculation methods enable engineers to customize the level of system design and reports.
