Schneider Electric and ETAP have announced the integration of EcoStruxureTM Power Operation with ETAP Operator Training Simulator (eOTSTM) and ETAP Power System Monitoring & Simulation (PSMSTM) to enable model-driven power system training and predictive analysis for operators and engineers.

The integration allows all EcoStruxure Power Operation systems to connect with ETAP Electrical Digital Twin on a continuous real-time basis.

The announcement comes courtesy of Schneider Electric, which specialises in digital automation and energy management, and ETAP, an analytical engineering solution company.

The connection aims to enable operators the ability to create and understand power system behaviour during real-world or plausible operating scenarios.

New operating procedures may be designed and validated against contingencies utilising the EcoStruxure Power Operation human-machine interface without the risk of affecting actual operations.

“A lack of power system intelligence can have huge financial impacts,” stated Sophie Borgne, SVP digital power at Schneider Electric.

“The ability to integrate a digital twin with the Power SCADA system is a one-of-a-kind offering that will help companies avoid unplanned outages caused by human error, reduce start-up and commission times and evaluate operator awareness and readiness.”

“Integrating real-time situational awareness, operations management and online electrical network analysis capabilities allows power system operators, engineers and facility managers to better visualise, analyse and optimise their electrical system operations,” said Tanuj Khandelwal, CEO of ETAP.

According to Schneider Electric, 40% of unplanned shutdowns are due to operator missteps. Oil and gas platforms experience up to $3 million in losses for every outage, a single electrical event in the semiconductor industry reportedly equates to a $3.8 million loss, while for hospitals, it’s roughly a $1 million loss per 8-hour outage.

The digital automation and energy management specialist further stated how using this technology will enable identification of potential problems and avoid unforeseen errors to prevent such costly system disruptions.
