ETAP laboratory

Location: 207.113

Operation Technology (OTI) Inc and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Curtin University signed an agreement to enhance the learning experiences of power engineering students by providing them with an opportunity to access the full range of ETAP power system simulation software’s.

Curtin’s undergraduate and postgraduate students are able to access the ETAP suite of power systems simulation software at the ‘ETAP Power Systems Simulation Laboratory’ located in Building 207 Room 113 on a 24/7 basis.

Dr Farookh Sokoh and Professor Syed Islam signed an agreement in 2006 in putting the $150,000 worth software partnership in place. Curtin students are able to explore the enormous simulation power of ETAP in designing and solving a range of power system steady state and dynamic problems giving them a smooth and easier transition to industry positions.

In 2010, the sponsorship was also extended to Curtin’s Malaysian campus in MIRI, Sarawak. For a full descriptions of the ETAP suite of software and this sponsorship please visit
