Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this introductory 4-day hands-on workshop is to learn how to apply power system engineering knowledge to conduct arc flash analysis as well as provide a refresher on modeling power systems using ETAP software.
  • The most awaited arc-flash incident energy calculation method is almost ready for release by IEEE 1584. This workshop will provide a preview of the fundamental differences between the new and existing (2002) arc-flash method.  The discussion will include background and insights into the model development and validation since this is essential to understand how the new model combines empirical and arc-flash physical behavior. An analytical opinion on how an arc-flash incident energy study will change using the new method will be presented to educate engineers on the expected differences.
  • The arc flash assessment and mitigation techniques using proper device protection, selectivity & coordination along with several hands-on practical exercises are the main focus of this workshop. In addition, a refresher course of power system modeling fundamentals, equipment sizing, power flow problems, short circuit analysis & motor starting concepts will be covered during the first day and a half of the workshop.
  • 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.
