Get started with EMTP

Training objectives

The objective of this training is to familiarize you with the usage of EMTP and the study of power-system transients. How to model a power system for EMT simulations, what scenarios to run and how to interpret the results are some of the subjects that will be addressed. The training will also provide an introduction to EMT studies of renewable energy systems.

The EMTP software is used to demonstrate the transient analysis concepts and to provide practical examples. Prior experience with EMTP is not required.

Training structure 

The duration of the training is 2 days. 
The training starts at 9 am and ends at 5.30 pm every day.
Lunch breaks are from 12.30 pm to 1.30 pm.
The training is presented in English.

Computer and temporary EMTP license

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