Power System Analysis - Advanced

4-Day Live Online (Multi-Session), 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM (GMT-3)
Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2020

This workshop is taught (in Spanish) by the ETAP authorized representative: Raien Argentina S.A.

Workshop Description

This 4-day multi-session workshop offers the opportunity to become proficient using ETAP:

  • To provide participants with knowledge and skills that will facilitate the performance of transient regime (electromechanical) studies in electrical systems using the current version of ETAP®.
  • Familiarize with the requirements and data preparation for transient regime studies (electromechanical) of an Electrical Power System using the current version of ETAP®.
  • Understanding the application and analysis of results obtained in the simulation of different modules of ETAP®20 such as Transient Stability, Three-phase Motor Starting and Distance (or Impedance) Protection Coordination in Sub-transmission and Transmission Networks.
  • Dynamic modeling of synchronous and asynchronous machines.
  • Modeling of the Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR), the Automatic Primary Motor Speed Regulator (Governor) and the Power Stabilizer (PSS) of synchronous generators.
  • The modality will be carried out through the "Virtual Classroom", where the participants will be able to access the analysis tool and each one will have the current version of ETAP® license for the simulations included in the program of this workshop.
  • In addition to the virtual class, one day will be available for interactive consultations and review of simulations with the workshop instructors after every 2 days of classes. Attending both from the Virtual Classroom and via email.

The topics to be taught will be broken into 4-hour sessions as noted below.
