Power System Monitoring & Simulation - PSMS™


A complete power management system, ETAP Power System Monitoring & Simulation (PSMS) is at the heart of the ETAP Real-Time power management system. Power System Monitoring & Simulation is the smart choice for both small and large electrical utility systems, generation plants, industrial sites, manufacturing facilities, and off-shore oil platforms.

This power management system can determine the appropriate system response to a variety of changes and disturbances by using electrical and physical parameters, loading and generation levels, network topology, and control logics. In addition, power system monitoring & simulation can determine the source of potential problems and advise on corrective actions to avoid interruptions.
