Analysis of Transients in Power Systems
The objective of this course is to give to beginner and intermediate participants a good hands-on experience on the simulation and analysis of power systems transients in general. The course is based on the usage of EMTP for demonstrating concepts and teaching through practical problem cases. EMTP contributes greatly to the simplification of complex power system studies and to the visualisation and accurate simulation of large systems.
The duration of the course is 5 days.
The course is presented in English.
Attendees with a limited understanding of power system transients will find that the case study approach will introduce the various families of transients in a manner that develops an in-depth understanding of the phenomena.
Attendees with a more detailed background in power system transients will find that this course will augment their knowledge by providing extended case study exercises to explore. Users of any EMTP-type program will benefit by increasing their knowledge of transient analysis and simulation. Prior exposure to and experience with the EMTP is not required. The course will effectively demonstrate how the new EMTP enables the user to quickly set up and run transient studies.
The first section of the course is directed to new users or users wishing to refresh their skills. For these students registration will be at 12:30 p.m. Monday, May 13 with class beginning at 1:00 p.m. (Lunch will be available at 12:00.) Experienced users may register at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, May 14, with class beginning at 8:00 a.m.
