Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this introductory hands-on workshop is to learn how to conduct arc flash analysis as well as provide a refresher on modeling power systems using ETAP software.
  • 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 two days of the workshop.
  • Three days of this workshop are dedicated to the device protection & coordination concept as well as the arc flash hazard assessment & mitigation techniques.
  • 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.
