You can take advantage of the open architecture of EMTP® to create customized toolboxes. A toolbox can contain libraries, documentations, scripts, DLLs and examples. Its content is loaded automatically when EMTP® starts and is completely integrated into the program.
To create a toolbox, proceed as follows:
- Go to « C:\Program Files\EMTPWorks 3.XXX\Toolboxes », you will find some EMTP® native toolboxes,
- Create a new folder « MyToolbox »,
- Open this new folder « MyToolbox »,
- Create a folder for each type of file included in the toolbox (DLL, Documentations, Examples, Libraries, Scripts…)
- Create a text file with the name of your toolbox and the format (.ini): « MyToolbox.ini »
- In this text file, set the relative paths to allow EMTP® to point to the appropriate folders.
Now EMTP® automatically:
- Opens your libraries when it starts
- Retrieves the scripts,
- Finds the DLLs called by devices or scripts [see "DLL documentations" in the EMTP® Software]
- Puts the designs of the Examples folder in the section « Open an Example File »
As an illustration, find here a Micro-grid toolbox entirely based on this feature.
Feel free to develop your own toolbox and share it on the EMTP exchange platform.
