Winners of the EMTP® Research Contribution Prize Program 2021
The EMTP® team is pleased to announce the winners of the EMTP® Research Contribution Prize program which took place in 2021.

The aim of the award is to recognize student contributions to the technology associated with power system transients. The two competition categories are:
  • Best accepted IEEE, IET, PSCC, EPSR or IPST journal or conference paper on EMT simulations;
  • Best EMTP® model developed.
We would like to congratulate our two winners of this year's edition:
  • Husam Samkari, winning the Paper category
  • Rafael Castillo Sierra, winning the Model category
Our winners are going to conduct a webinar to present their work, feel free to register!

Much more than the $1000 in prize money, our two winners are making a real contribution to the field of power system simulation.

All the papers and models received were of a high quality and we would like to congratulate all the participants for their excellent work. Their production makes them completely part of the EMTP® community and we wish our winners and all participants, all the best for the rest of their career.

Response of Overhead Lines to Direct Lightning Strikes: Assessment of the LEMP Effects
In the usual practice, the evaluation of the overvoltages due to direct lightning strikes to overhead power line conductors is focused on the representation of the effects of the lightning current injection, whilst the effects of the coupling between the conductors and the lightning electromagnetic pulse (LEMP) is disregarded.

Induced Voltage Study Plant
The induced voltage study was performed to get an understanding on the level of voltages that may be expected when the 161 kV line from substation A to substation C is out of service, but the 161 kV line from substation D to substation C is in service and vice versa. The analysis provided very useful information on the level of induced voltages that may be expected on the 13 kV distribution feeder and helped MidAmerican to develop mitigation measures.
