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 extended to five days.
  • 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.
  • This workshop provides instructions on how to apply the IEEE 1584-2018 Standard. The course explains how an arc-flash incident energy study should be conducted using the latest arc-flash standard guidelines.
  • 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.

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.
