This work shows the introduction of the Electrical Power System Analysis (etap) software as a calculation and analysis tool for power electrical systems of the nuclear power plants (NPP) under the orbit of Nucleoeléctrica Argentina S.A (NASA). Through the use of the software, the model of the electrical power system of the Atucha II NPP was developed. To test the functionality of the modeled electrical power circuit, studies of load flow and short-circuit analysis were conducted, yielding satisfactory results, which were contrasted with the plant design values. Once the model has been validated, this will be the basis for carrying out different studies in the plant through simulation. Furthermore, with the incorporation of etap as a fundamental calculation and analysis tool for power electrical systems at the company's engineering departments, it is expected to improve the safety, operation, quality, reliability, and maintenance of both the Atucha II NPP electrical power system and the other nuclear power plants operated by Nucleoeléctrica Argentina S.A.
