Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this introductory hands-on workshop is to learn power system modeling & analysis using ETAP software extended to four days.
  • This workshop covers a range of ETAP functionalities used to solve various power system practical problems such as equipment sizing in steady state and short circuit conditions, motor acceleration scenarios, protection of the equipment, selectivity, & device coordination, arc flash assessment & mitigation, and effects of harmonics in the system.
  • An ETAP workstation is provided for each attendee but participants may bring and use their own personal laptop computer.

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
