Demystifying IBR Fault Response with Parametric Modeling & Analysis

9:00 AM - 10:00 AM UTC, 1 hour

Free Webinar

Webinar Description

The fault response characteristics of synchronous generators are inherently governed by their physical attributes and construction. In contrast, the fault response traits of Inverter-Based Resources (IBRs) are intricately tied to manufacturer-specific control schemes and settings. This intricacy adds complexity to accurately representing IBR behavior during fault conditions, particularly given the rapid advancements in inverter technology and the diverse control strategies employed by manufacturers.  

In this webinar, we aim to elucidate the industry's established methodologies alongside recent advancements in modeling and analyzing IBRs for short circuit analysis within ETAP. Given the enigmatic nature of IBR fault response behavior, there exists a paramount need to diligently collect and analyze all fault events within renewable-based systems.  

Our webinar will delve into this imperative by showcasing ETAP's automated fault analysis software, etapAFAS. This groundbreaking solution adeptly extracts disturbance and fault records, leveraging the network digital twin to furnish System Operators with a comprehensive understanding and a lucid visualization of the system's dynamics.   

 What you will learn: 

  • Understand the various settings of ETAP IBR short circuit model and their impacts on IBR fault responses . 
  • Recognize the challenges with solution convergence in case of IBR interconnection with weak systems.    
  • Learn the uses for etapAFAS, the model-driven solution which adeptly extracts disturbance and fault records to furnish system operators with a comprehensive understanding and lucid visualization of the system's dynamics. 
  • Discover how etapAFAS contributes to maximum efficiency, minimum downtime, reliable protection, safer operation and overall sustainability of renewable-based systems.
