Analysis of Transients in Power Systems

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 5 days.
The course is presented in English.


Computer and temporary EMTP license:

Each participant will have to bring a personal computer. EMTP temporary licenses will be provided for the duration of the training.


Intented audience 

This course is intended for engineering personnel familiar with the basics of electric power system analysis who need more in-depth knowledge of the analysis and simulation of power system transients. This will include:

  • Power system analysts

  • Transmission engineers

  • Substation engineers

  • Wind generation analysts

  • Researchers

  • Consultants



  • The Range of Power system transients

  • Introduction to EMTP using examples

  • IEEE 34-bus distribution test case

  • Power system stability studies, Electromechanical oscillations

  • Insulation coordination of a 230 kV transmission system

  • Insulation coordination of a 230 kV GIS

  • Breaker failure analysis with a detailed arc model

  • Synchronous and asynchronous machine models and associated controls

  • Power electronics systems modeling (HVDC, FACTS)

  • Power quality studies

  • Wind generation studies
