    ETAP

    ETAP is highly recommended for evaluating static conditions in electrical power systems, whether in high or medium complexity networks. For example, study of load flow, analysis of frequency harmonics.
    On the other hand, I would not recommend ETAP for the simulation of highly complex control systems that require a dynamic analysis of the variables.

    Cons

    ETAP

    • Perhaps the interface is somewhat confusing the first time you use the program.
    • It offers a wide configuration, which can be overwhelming.
    • Sometimes the program can freeze depending on the size of the electrical grid that is being simulated. This also depends on the software requirements.

        Usability

        ETAP

        ETAP PS is really easy to use. When recreating the power system to be simulated, it is easy to obtain a result close to reality due to the multiple components offered in the interface. As for the electrical studies available, they are simple to execute and require really little configuration to make them work, always offering a wide variety of options to adjust the program to the simulation of the desired condition.

        ETAP

        Sometimes when the program crashes for a random reason, it is difficult to find a direct solution to the problem. I think better documentation is needed for this type of case. Still, more and more people are sharing their work on the web, making it easier to orient yourself when these issues occur.

        Alternatives Considered

        ETAP

        Simulink allows to analyze and simulate different variables with respect to time in an electric power system, but it is more focused on visual programming On the other hand, ETAP is better designed for static simulation of power systems, offering options and studies in a very more direct and easier to execute.
