Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to develop a more thorough understanding of the capabilities of ETAP.
  • The topics covered in this workshop embrace fundamentals on power system dynamics and stability as well as induction and synchronous machine dynamics. Modeling of their associated control systems such as excitation/AVR, turbine/governor and Power System Stabilizers (PSS) are discussed.
  • Additional topics include network and load modeling, steady-state and transient-state stability limits, simulation of system disturbances and actions, motor starting and acceleration, effects of system parameters, common transient stability studies such as critical fault clearing time, critical islanding time, protective device settings, bus transfer, load shedding, etc.
  • Case studies from industrial systems will be provided and worked on.
  • Through the hands-on exercises using ETAP, the attendees will acquire the knowledge, skills, and experience to conduct power system dynamic and stability studies for their own systems.
  • An ETAP workstation is provided for each attendee.
  • This workshop will be conducted in Spanish.

Who should attend

  • This course is for attendees familiar with modeling and validating one-line diagrams using ETAP
  • 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.
