Training on insulation coordination studies

Training objectives: 27 - 28 March 2018

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

  • Manage the GUI

  • Choose the configuration (models, equipments) suited to the type of simulation to run

  • Identify and solve simulation failures

  • Analyze simulation results


Training objectives: 29 - 30 March 2018

The objective of this course is to give to participants a good knowledge of insulation coordination studies. Participants will learn the theory and principles of Insulation coordination studies, modeling techniques and how to use EMTP models. Moreover, they will learn how to manage a whole Insulation coordination study based on the IEC 60071.


Intented Audience

The course is of interest for newcomers, users of the software and also for those who want to improve their skills in the field of insulation coordination.

  • Professionals from power transmission

  • Distribution and production companies

  • Professional engineers and Engineering professional consultants

  • Research personnel in industry, utilities, universities and consulting companies involved in power systems studies
