Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this Live Online workshop is to learn how to apply power system engineering knowledge to conduct arc-flash hazard analysis as well as to provide a refresher on modeling power systems using ETAP software.
  • This workshop provides instructions on how to apply the new IEEE 1584-2018 Standard.  The course explains how an arc-flash incident energy study should be conducted using the new arc-flash standard guidelines.
  • The course covers a few basics on arc-flash hazard assessment and the application/selection of mitigation techniques such as improved overcurrent protective device settings, differential protection, etc.
  • This course also includes a refresher on topics such as power system modeling fundamentals, equipment sizing, power flow problems, & short circuit analysis.
  • Participants will be provided with a full ETAP license for the duration of the workshop.

NOTE:  This workshop starts at 9:00 AM, Pacific Time.


  • Windows 10 Computer (i5+ CPU).
  • Reliable Internet access so attendee can connect to ETAP License server during workshop.
  • Dual Monitors are recommended but not required.

Who should attend

  • New ETAP users and power engineers who wish to increase their skills using the ETAP application to perform system studies and arc flash analysis
  • Current users seeking a refresher course
  • Knowledge of power system engineering concepts is highly recommended for those attending this workshop.
