Automatic conversion of PSS®E models to EMTP

The PSS®E Import Tool provides an automatic conversion of PSS®E network models for various EMTP® studies, such as the integration of inverter-based resources, switching transients, and insulation coordination. The PSS®E components supported by the Import Tool include buses, lines, breakers, transformers, loads, and synchronous generators, together with their exciters, governors and power system stabilizers. These components are automatically imported, parametrized, and interconnected in EMTP®.

EMTP® studies for IBR integration at Hydro-Quebec
April 28, 2021 | 11:00 AM (EST)
Hydro-Quebec has been involved in EMTP® development since the 80s and has collaborated with several organizations worldwide through the Development Coordination Group of EMTP® (DCG-EMTP®). Hydro-Quebec was the key player in the EMTP® recoding project that allowed the delivery of the latest generation of the software in 2003. The new EMTP® was developed at IREQ (Hydro-Quebec’s research center) from 1998 to 2003.
Hydro-Quebec was the first organization to simulate its complete transmission grid in EMTP®. Hydro-Quebec was also the first system operator to require that manufacturers of wind turbines provide detailed EMT-type (EMTP®) models for wind park integration studies. This webinar will present:
  • How EMTP® simulations are integrated into Hydro-Quebec’s work process?
  • How EMTP® simulations can complete RMS simulations?
  • Future simulation challenges

Composite testing of HVDC-connected offshore wind farms
in Great Britain
April 29, 2021 | 11:00 AM (EST)
Transmission connections to offshore wind generation typically consist of multiple technologies supplied by different manufacturers with each tested at the factory, but with limited composite modelling and testing of the combined system control and protection performance.
To start to address these technical challenges, the HVDC Centre with the support of ESO connections team commissioned the COMPOSITE project with RTE International to identify practical guidelines and best practices for composite testing and compliance of complex electricity connections, leveraging the experience we share across multi-vendor and multi-device testing we have delivered.

This joint webcast by HVDC Centre in collaboration with RTE International and EMTP® will describe key findings and lessons learned from the COMPOSITE project, including a demonstration of EMTP® modelling the composite models and their test cases.

Speakers:
- Benjamin Marshall – HVDC Technology Manager, The National HVDC Centre
- Dr. Oluwole Daniel Adeuyi - Simulation Engineer & Offshore Networks Lead, The National HVDC Centre
- Hani Saad - Power system expert engineer, RTE

    RESOURCES

    Use of EMTP® in Transmission Planning Research
    The initiation of inverter-based generation (IBG), has been changing the characteristics of the grid. The addition of non-traditional generation sources gives rise to several grid concerns, such as reduced short-circuit fault current capacity and system inertia as well as ineffective voltage regulation. Because of this – the use of EMT studies has been becoming more common to accommodate “special” studies. This presentation will just highlight a few examples of the use of EMTP® in transmission level planning.
    Transient Recovery Voltage (TRV) analysis in EMTP®
    In this video, we demonstrate how to perform a Transient Recovery Voltage analysis in EMTP®. Overview:
  • Simulation of single-phase-to-ground fault
  • Simulation of terminal three-phase fault
  • Transmission line TRV
  • Transformer-limited faults
  • How to apply IEC 62271-100 and IEEE C37.011 / IEEE C37.06
