Workshop Description

  • The topics dealt with in this course correspond to basis of reliability evaluation applied to the planning and designing of distribution systems, emphasizing industrial and commercial power systems.
  • The modeling of components and systems is examined from the point of view of the long-term availability of the equipment, laying the stress on the case of repairable components and systems, mainly for its importance in power systems. One of the most important benefits of the reliability evaluation is that it provides a quantitative methodology for the election of alternatives in the designing of distribution systems. This hands-on workshop provides the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary to become proficient in ETAP, which in turn will facilitate the evaluation of reliability worth in distribution systems.
  • An ETAP workstation is provided for each attendee.
  • This workshop will be conducted in Spanish.

Who should attend

  • 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.
