Workshop Description

  • The purpose of this 4-day advanced hands-on workshop is to develop a more thorough understanding of the capabilities of ETAP in regards to stability & dynamics of the system.
  • The topics covered in this workshop embrace fundamentals on power system dynamics and stability as well as induction and synchronous machine dynamics. Modeling of their associated control systems such as excitation/AVR, turbine/governor and PSS are discussed.
  • Additional topics include network and load modeling, steady-state and transient-state stability limits, simulation of system disturbances and actions, motor starting and acceleration, affects of system parameters, common transient stability studies such as critical fault clearing time, critical islanding time, protective device settings, bus transfer, load shedding, etc. Case studies from actual industrial and T&D systems will be provided and worked on.
  • Through the hands-on exercises using ETAP, the attendees will acquire the knowledge, skills, and experience to conduct power system dynamic and stability studies for their own systems.
  • This workshop does not include any refresher on fundamentals of power system modeling in ETAP.

Who should attend

  • ETAP Professional workshops are recommended for engineers who have taken prior ETAP workshops and/or are proficient in basic functionalities of ETAP. 
  • This series of workshops are to employ ETAP in more practical cases and how to fully utilize ETAP capabilities most efficiently to analyze the dynamic behavior of the systems. Recommended for users who have practical experience with the details of power system modeling, managing 3-dimensional database and utilizing device libraries in the ETAP application, as well as being familiar with performing the transient cases & dynamic analysis.
