EMTP and power electronics applications on the grid
Due to the increase of renewable energy and DC link, power electronic converters play a more and more important role in the AC network.
This course is dedicated to engineers who already knows the funding of power electronics and who wants to improve their knowledge about the different converters (eg: Modular Multilevel Converter), HVDC links, renewable converters. All this will be modeled with EMTP which provide numerous and accurate tools to study the connection and the interaction of these devices on the AC grid.
The course is based on the usage of EMTP for demonstrating concepts and teaching through practical problem cases.
The duration of the course is 4 days.
The course starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. every day except the last day (at 4:00 pm).
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 course.
They could be users of the software but also people who would like to discover how useful simulation can be for them.
