The EMTP® Alliance recently proposed a training series for EVN NLDC - Vietnam Electricity

The EMTP® team has proposed a comprehensive training program for EVN NLDC on the topic of simulation and analysis of large-scale power systems with renewable energies.

Montreal (Canada) - March 10, 2022

The EMTP® team has proposed a comprehensive training program for EVN NLDC on the topic of simulation and analysis of large-scale power systems with renewable energies.

Topics covered:

  1. 2 Sessions of 2 hours
    • The basics of EMT modeling
    • Overview of EMT dynamic modeling components for renewable energy resources (wind and photovoltaic (PV) farm, battery energy storage, aggregated rooftop PV, synchronous condensers.
  2. 2 Sessions of 2 hours
    • How to convert PSS/E topological and dynamic models to EMT models to create large-scale EMT system model from PSS/E data.
      • Option 1: Demonstration of result difference between EMTP and PSS/E. This Item includes some preparation time to create the content.
    • How to perform EMT simulations and associated user-interface for visualizing, plotting, for large-scale EMT simulations.
  3. 2 Sessions of 2 hours
    • Demonstration examples for stability studies with large scale EMT model - load-flow, temporary over-voltages (TOV), stability problems, sub-synchronous Control Interaction (SSCI), weak grid studies in regions with concentration of renewable resources.


This training was proposed to the Vietnamese grid operator in collaboration with PNNL - Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Energy Resources to increase grid stability under the Japan-U.S.-Mekong Power Partnership.

Why EMTP®?

EMTP® was selected because its off-line simulation engine with advanced numerical methods, offers inherently the best combination of precision and simulation speed.
EMTP® also provides the ability to perform load-flow and use load-flow results to automatically initialize EMT simulations, which opens the door for easy parametric studies where initial conditions may be changed without requiring an external third-party load-flow package.
