  • Introduction to Power Systems Analysis and Modeling Tools
  • Introduction to EMTP-RV Using Examples
  • EMTP-RV Simulation Options
  • Power System Device Models
  • Transmission and Distribution Lines
  • The Study of a Complete System
  • Power System Stability Studies, Electromechanical Oscillations
  • Insulation Coordination of a 230 kV Transmission System
  • Statistical Analysis

  • 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.

Course structure:
The duration of the course is 5 days.
The course is presented in English.

By participating in this course, you will earn 30 Professional Development Hours (PDH) and 3 Continuing Education Units (CEU). Learn more about PDH, LU, CEU and state licensing boards.

Intended audience:
