Simulation and Analysis of Power System Transients

Training objectives

The objective of this course is to give to beginner participants a good first hands-on experience on EMTP® and an overview of the EMTP® capabilities. The course is based on the usage of EMTP® for demonstrating concepts and teaching through practical problem cases.


Training structure 

The duration of the training is 2 days.
The training starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. every day.
The training is presented in English.


Computer and temporary EMTP® license:

Each participant will have to bring a personal laptop. EMTP® temporary licenses will be provided for the duration of the course to experiment real cases guided by the instructor.



The course is of interest for students, faculties, research scholars, practicing engineers, working professionals who perform power systems studies with a basic knowledge in electrical systems (machines, transformers, electrical networks).
