Etap_PowerStation_v16.2_download_tutorials_training ETAP is a fully graphical Enterprise package that runs on Microsoft ® Windows ® 2008, 2012, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 operating systems. ETAP is the most comprehensive analysis tool for the design and testing of power systems available. Using its standard offline simulation modules, ETAP can utilize real-time operating data for advanced monitoring, real-time simulation, optimization, energy management systems, and high-speed intelligent load shedding. Has been designed and developed by engineers for engineers to handle the diverse discipline of power systems for a broad spectrum of industries in one integrated package with multiple interface views such as AC and DC networks, cable raceways, ground grid, GIS, panels, arc flash, WTG, protective device coordination/selectivity, and AC and DC control system diagrams.

ETAP users must be proficient in using basic operations of Windows ® environment. Use of ETAP does not require training. However, to facilitate the learning process, OTI provides workshops throughout the year in several locations. (Refer to for the up-to-date training schedule.).

ETAP allows you to easily create and edit graphical one-line diagrams (OLD), underground cable raceway systems (UGS), three-dimensional cable systems, advanced time-current coordination and selectivity plots, geographic information system schematics (GIS), as well as three-dimensional ground grid systems (GGS). The program has been designed to incorporate to three key concepts: Virtual Reality Operation The program operation emulates real electrical system operation as closely as possible. For example, when you open or close a circuit breaker, place an element out of service, or change the operating status of motors, the deenergized elements and sub-systems are indicated on the one-line diagram in gray. ETAP incorporates innovative concepts for determining protective device coordination directly from the one-line diagram. Strength points: • EASY: Integrated and modular program with a modern and intuitive interface and a high quality graphics. Very easy to use. • POWERFUL: Based on a general approach and then suitable for many applications, in a wide frequency range, with arbitrary conductors network and many soil models including multilayer.

• WORLDWIDE: The only software in the market that takes into account International (IEC), European (EN) and USA (IEEE) standards. • VALIDATED: Accuracy validated since 1990 by comparison with results from analytical cases, published research, field measurements, and similar programs. All modules are integrated in an “all in one” package and based on a hybrid calculation method (or “PEEC” method) which considers transmission line, circuit and electromagnetic theory combined into a single calculation model. Hybrid methods join the strong points of the other methods and are well suited for engineering purposes because they allow the analysis of complex scenarios including external parameters such as voltages, currents and impedances. For these reasons, XGSLab can be considered a real laboratory. Me'scope_2017_Training_manual_crack The VES Visual Engineering Series of software packages and options makes it easier for you to observe and analyze noise & vibration problems in machinery and structures using either experimental or analytical data. With ME’scope, you can import or directly acquire multi-channel time or frequency data from a machine or structure, and post-process it.

Its industry-leading interactive 3D animation allows you to observe order-related operating deflection shapes from running machinery, resonant vibration and mode shapes from real structures, acoustic shapes, and engineering shapes directly from acquired data. In addition to its photo-realistic interactive animated display, ME’scopeVES contains state of the art tools for performing: • FRF-Based Modal Analysis • Operational Modal Analysis • Vibro-Acoustic Analysis • Dynamics Modeling & Simulation • Structural Dynamics Modification • FEA Model Updating An Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) is the simplest way to see how a machine or structure moves during its operation, either at a specific frequency or moment in time.

An ODS contains the overall dynamic response of a structure due to forced and resonant vibration. Time-based ODS animation sweeps a cursor through a set of time histories describing motions at multiple points and directions on a test article. You can stop the animation, back it up, and play it forward to observe in slow-motion phenomena that may have taken place very quickly in real time. With frequency-based ODS animation, you simply move the cursor to a frequency of interest in your data, and the ODS for that frequency is displayed. With this animation, you can observe resonant vibration as well as order-related and other types of forced vibration. Modal analysis is used to characterize resonant vibration in mechanical structures. Each resonance has a specific “natural” or modal frequency, a modal damping or decay value, and a mode shape.

FRF-Based parameter estimation (or curve fitting) is used to estimate the modal parameters of a structure from a set of FRFs. At the heart of the Basic Modal Analysis option is the ME’scope Polynomial method, an easy to use MDOF curve fitter. This curve fitter can be used to simultaneously extract parameters for multiple modes, especially in cases of high modal density. It can also extract local modes where the resonant vibration is confined to a local region of the structure. The Multi-Reference Modal Analysis option contains all of the features of the Basic Modal Analysis option, plus additional methods for curve fitting a multiple reference set of FRFs. Multi- Reference curve fitting is used to extract closely coupled modes and repeated roots (two or more modes at the same frequency). This option contains a Stability diagram for locating stable pole estimates, and three additional curve fitting methods: Complex Exponential, Z-Polynomial, and the patented AF Polynomial method.

The Standard Edition includes improvements including a new Field Data Editor, Fields Wizard, and field conversion tool. You can use the improved Spot X+Y default merit function, which is now the fastest way to optimize for small spot sizes.

Test different tolerances with a new on/off toggle. Customize the location of your design files. The Professional Edition includes all features available in the Standard Edition, plus the Contrast Optimizer, which uses the innovative new Moore-Elliot method.
