The Use of EMTP-RV by a Transmission System Operator (TSO)
Powersys has discussed EMTP-RV with Mr. Sébastien Dennetière, engineer at French transmission system operator RTE (Réseau de transport d’Electricité).

Q1 : What is the mission of your department?
A1 : Perform EMT studies for installation of new equipment, analysis of events on the transmission grid and preparation of maintenance activities.


Q2 : What was the EMTP-RV impact on your work?
A2 : It has a major impact on our work, 6 study engineers are working full time with EMTP-RV, in addition to various other R&D projects related to EMTP.


Q3 : Can you describe a specific project in which EMTP-RV had a key contribution on study time and accuracy of results?
A3 : EMTP studies helped us to evaluate solutions for limiting transient switching overvoltages for long shunt compensated EHV cables. Simulations results have been successfully compared to site measurements.

Extensive EMTP simulations were used to adjust controller settings and limit inrush currents. Simulations have been validated against field measurements. Parametric simulations have been performed with EMTP to analyze thousands of cases.
