Training on power system studies with EMTP®

Training objective

The objective of this training is to get familiar with the usage of EMT-type software and the study of power-system transients. How to model power-systems, what scenarios to run and how to interpret and verify results are as many questions that will be addressed. The software EMTP® is used for demonstrating concepts and teaching through practical cases. Prior experience with EMTP® is not required.


Training structure 

The duration of the course is 2 days.
Welcome coffee & registration at 8am.
The course starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. every day.
The course is presented in English.


Intended audience
