Engineering Software

Electric Power Engineers, Inc. provides engineering software solutions tailored around enhancing our clients’ system planning and operations. EPE additionally deploys other state of the art engineering software to run transmission and distribution grid analysis. As information technology became more essential to the effective functioning of utilities, EPE began to develop software to augment our continuum of services. Over the 30-plus years that we have been developing software, we were among the first to offer our clients a full complement of PC based solutions. Our history of innovation and customer focus continues to this day hinging our services on GIS System Modeling and Consumer Information Systems. EPE has developed state-of-the-art PC-based software to meet the needs for mapping and engineering requirements of electric distribution utilities. Electric cooperatives are currently using EngMap©, to manage and study their distribution grid.

 

EPE Software, LTD, a subsidiary of Electric Power Engineers, Inc. has developed state-of-the art PC-based software to meet the needs for customer billing/records, mapping, and engineering requirements of electric, water, gas, distribution utilities.

IBM and Electric Power Engineers have formed an alliance to develop a new generation of Online Intelligent Software for the Design Automation and Optimization of Electric Distribution Systems.
