Training objectives:

The objectives of the course are to know how to simulate a microgrid network in a time-domain software, to identify and solve challenges regarding stability and islanding detection.


The course is of interest for newcomers, software users and also for those who want to improve their skills in the fields of microgrid simulations.

  •     Professionals from Power Transmission,
  •     Distribution and Production companies,
  •     Professional engineers and Engineering professionals,
  •     Consultants,
  •     Research personnel in industry, utilities, universities and consulting companies involved in power systems studies,
  •     Post-graduated students.


Training structure:

The training is presented in English.


Computer and temporary EMTP-RV license:

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


Day 1: Some Microgrid examples developed in EMTP

  •     EMTP Get started
  •     Inverter modelling
  •     Load-Flow with Distributed Generation (DG)main simulation of DG

Day 2:
  •     Modeling of microgrids in abc-, alpha-beta-, and dq-frame
  •     Harmonics and negative-sequence in different reference frames
  •     Islanding detection based on negative-sequence current injection (This is a new approach based on MIMO control)
  •     Control of electronically-interfaced DG units in grid-connected mode control. This includes DG interfaced by L-filter and LCL filter, under balanced and unbalanced grid conditions, using high performance control techniques.
  •     Line and cable

Day 3:
  •     Stability analysis of microgrids with parametric uncertainties
  •     Kharitonov’s theorem, Polytope of polynomials, the Mapping theorem, (if time permits Guardian Map)
  •     Control of microgrids in islanded modes, and stability analysis of such systems using the theorems explained
  •     Line and cable
