We are pleased to welcome you to our Seminar in our EMTP-RV Headquarters office.  This 1-Day event brings together users, EMTP-RV's team, technical support staff to network, share insights and discuss issues related to Electromagnetic Transients in Power Systems.



Morning :

  • Recent developments and Road Map

EMTP is constantly being improved to achieve highly accurate and high-speed simulation of power system transients. Powersys would like to share the recent development progress and to introduce the development roadmap. Upcoming versions will bring to the users a more user-friendly interface and many new powerful features. This presentation will discuss the present and future of EMTP.


  • Protection analysis in EMTP

This presentation focuses on the new protection toolbox through practical examples. This toolbox opens new doors for the simulation and analysis of protection systems. All relay, fuse and thermal element models are solved in time-domain with nonlinear functions, such as CT, VT and CVT magnetization. This new implementation for EMTP allows to achieve highest levels of accuracy for protection coordination and analysis of performance with highly accurate power system models. 


  • Simulink® toolbox

Join us for a quick demonstration of the new Simulink toolbox.  
The easiest way to import any Simulink® models, regardless of its complexity, into EMTP designs.


  • Exciters and governors Library

Demonstration of the new library of Exciters and Governors through practical examples. This library contains more than 30 standard models for governors, exciters and power system stabilizers. It includes various models from the IEEE Standard 421.5-2005 “IEEE Recommended Practice for Excitation System Models for Power System Models for Power System Stability Studies”.



PAMLAB (Parametric Modelling Lab) is a new tool dedicated to parametric and optimisation studies.

By importing the base-case EMTP-RV file into PAMLAB, different types of analysis are available and will be demonstrated through practical examples:

         -       Contingency scenarios exploration
         -       Simulation with parameter uncertainties (Monte Carlo)
         -       Sensitivity Analysis
         -       Optimization
         -       Data Assimilation (data matching)

PAMLAB includes a powerful environment for the exploration and analysis of the results and the identification of the critical parameter values.


Afternoon :

  • Multi-time step and multi-core calculation in EMTP-RV using the new FMI capabilities.

This presentation explains how the new FMI capabilities introduced in EMTP 3.4 allow to implement multi-time-step and multi-core simulation of control systems in EMTP to significantly speed-up computations.


  • Engineering and consulting service

Powersys provides also a wide range of engineering and consulting services:

        -        Power systems studies (integration of renewable energy, power quality, transient analysis, …),
        -        Finite elements analysis of electromagnetic devices,
        -        Customization and developments of simulation tools.

This presentation describes some experiences of the Powersys Engineering Service.


  • Switching transients analysis: transformer energization

Energizing a power transformer may cause excessive currents or voltages in power systems and create significant risks on equipment. It is important to study it to evaluate the inrush currents level and to ensure the safety of devices.

This presentation will focus on the following points:

        -        Introduction to transformer models
        -        Transformer nonlinear characteristic and inrush currents
        -        Modelling of transformer for inrush currents calculations in EMTP-RV
        -        Inrush currents analysis with EMTP-RV
