Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this introductory hands-on workshop is to learn power system modeling & analysis using ETAP software extended to five days in order to cover additional topics.
  • This workshop covers a range of ETAP functionalities used to design & solve various power system practical problems.
  • It starts from utilizing the full capabilities of the software for modeling & managing of the power systems to equipment sizing in steady state and short circuit conditions, motor acceleration scenarios, protection of the equipment, selectivity, & device coordination, arc flash assessment & mitigation, effects of harmonics in the system & sizing proper filters, and designing of the ground grids for substations.
  • An ETAP workstation is provided for each attendee.

Who should attend

  • New ETAP users and power engineers who wish to increase their skills using the ETAP application to perform system studies
  • Current users seeking a refresher course
  • Knowledge of power system engineering concepts is highly recommended for those attending this workshop
