In 1985 Farrokh Shokooh saw the need for an advanced software to help engineers model and analyze power systems in the most efficient and accurate way. Farrokh’s vision was to create the most capable and comprehensive software, based on a single platform with one database. The goal was to develop a software with integrated solutions and an intuitive interface to reduce engineering hours. To realize this vision, Farrokh left his prestigious position at an international corporation and took his extensive theoretical education and practical experience to launch ETAP® (Operation Technology, Inc.).
Founded in 1986, ETAP is headquartered in Irvine, California, USA, with 33 offices around the world.
