Design & Analysis
Design and engineering verification & validation of equipment selection for projects in Arctic environment Presentation
Oil & Gas plants located in the Arctic region face severe ambient conditions, especially extremely low temperatures. To maintain high power system reliability and availability, special attention has been devoted
to equipment design and selection such as generator capability verification, transformer and switchgear sizing utilizing ETAP Software.
Rahul Saini – TechnipFMC (France)
Analysis of electrical power supply system of NPP using ETAP Software Presentation
This presentation covers the design and analysis of electrical power supply systems of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) with VVER 1200 design in Europe using ETAP Software and in compliance with the requirements of international
standards, as well as authority and owner demands. Main challenges faced during the implementation phase are discussed, as well as areas of applicability, covering the specifics of NPPs design principles and operation
experiences. Experience and lessons learned on ETAP Software applications for specific projects will be shared. Expansion plans for the implementation of ETAP for electrical power supply system analysis are presented.
Filipp Novikov & Konstantin Medvedev - JSC ASE (AtomStroyExport) (Russia)
Troubleshoot equipment failure on critical cooling system with motor acceleration analysis Presentation
In addition to verifying equipment sizing, ETAP allows for verification of the system model by comparing calculated results to measured quantities, identification of constraining configurations, and validation of non-critical
operating modes. The presentation discusses how ETAP Software is used to perform root cause analyses and validate prospective solutions.

Safety & Protection
Arc Flash Hazard Assessment according to IEEE 1584 / NFPA 70E; application examples and experiences using ETAP Presentation
Electrical safety initiatives for employees have been increased within the last decade. Compliance to IEEE 1584 has been mandatory for US-based companies and they require the same conformity to safety standards for
all their other sites around the world. In Germany e.g. the safety procedures were mostly unknown and such compliance in daily operations became necessary.The adoption of IEEE 1584 and NFPA 70E methodologies
for arc flash analysis have been well supported by ETAP Software to allow for investigations of complex power systems. In parallel, another calculation method was developed in Germany with identical objectives but
a different approach and calculation algorithms. In fact, ETAP has implemented calculations according to DGUV Information 203-077.This presentation focuses on the experiences while realizing Arc Flash
Hazard assessments using ETAP, based on the updated version of the IEEE 1584 standard. Comparisons will be drawn for the 2002 and 2018 standard editions; examples shown, and explained with user experience described.
Thomas Weber & Guy Valdes Kengne - Schneider Electric (Germany)
Optimization of neutral grounding transformer sizing in industrial plants Presentation
Earthing transformers are typically used in medium voltage distribution networks, especially for industrial plants, each time there is the necessity to recreate the neutral earthing point in the system since the supply
HV/MV transformer has a secondary delta winding on the medium voltage side. A new sizing procedure is developed, based on the concept of transformer let-through energy in case of phase-to-earth faults. In this way,
oversizing of earthing transformers is avoided as it would be the case using the formulas available in technical literature.
Paolo Marini – Technimont (Italy)
Grid Code / Renewables
Grid code studies for renewable power plants Presentation
Renewable power plants (RPPs) are increasing their contribution to the energy supply portfolio. Integrating a large amount of renewable generation presents several challenges, particularly in weak systems. To facilitate
renewable power generation integration, it is important that RPPs contribute to the system regulation and stability, especially during system disturbances. The authorities in charge of system integrity and network
operation specify the Grid Codes that RPPs must meet to ensure safe and secure operation of the system. These requirements must be verified at the design stage through Grid Code Compliance analysis. The compliance
analysis includes various studies such as reactive power capabilities, harmonic distortion verification and dynamic behavior assessment under fault or frequency disturbances. This presentation will show
a study case of reactive power capability (P/Q & U/Q) and provide an overview of ETAP capabilities for harmonic and dynamic simulations.
Giovanni Gambirasio – Selecty (Italy)
Automated Grid Code Analysis using ETAP Presentation
To implement seamless integration of distributed energy resources (DERs), grid owners and operators have designed and imposed various grid codes and standards to make DERs grid friendly. As part of any new integration
of DERs, grid code study must be performed to comply with operational limitations and interconnection standards. In this presentation, new set of ETAP features will be introduced that allows users effectively and
automatically evaluate different grid code requirements such as voltage ride through (VRT), frequency ride through (FRT), PQ capability, and Q-U capability.
Mohammad Zadeh – ETAP
Harmonic impedance impact on grid connection Presentation
With the growing levels of grid connected loads, FACTS and generation plants using electronic interfaces, harmonic distortion levels are increasing across utility networks.This presentation addresses the
study requirements and challenges for new connection applicants in meeting the harmonic limits allocated under IEC 61000-3-6, where the headroom available within these limits is decreasing.
Hugh O'Kelly – IO Logic (Ireland / UK)
An approach to assessment of the impact of topology changes and fundamental frequency load-flow variations on harmonic voltage levels in a transmission grid Presentation
An example of ETAP application for harmonic analysis in a transmission grid, including frequency scan is presented. It is demonstrated that driving-point impedance frequency response estimation is the primary objective
for transmission grids, with a considerable share of large non-linear loads producing steady harmonic current injections. Discussed is the impact of grid topology changes, composition of operating generation units,
switching state of var compensators and load demand level. The presentation will demonstrate how ETAP is capable of representing grid areas as frequency-dependent equivalents, providing transmission
grid model reduction.
