The deployment of distributed generation, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging technologies is creating a paradigm shift of the way distribution networks are planned, operated, and analyzed. Distribution system engineers are now required to perform wide variety of complicated studies ranging from planning analyses to expert simulations supporting operations, including interconnection assessments for emerging technologies such as distributed generation, energy storage, and charging stations of electric vehicles.
This Distribution Automation Training course provides students with hands-on training using CYME distribution system software tool (CYMDIST) in order to analyze evolving distribution systems. CYMDIST is a powerful tool used by most power utilities and consultant firms in Canada and worldwide to model power distribution systems. The software is superior in addressing the simulation needs for capacity, contingency, power quality, protection, reliability, and optimization analyses in evolving distribution systems.
This 2-Day Distribution Automation Training Workshop explores how to implement the fundamentals laid out in our Smart Distribution Automation Course (www.electricityforum.com/electrical-training/distribution-automation) fundamentals using EATON CYMDIST software.
CYMDIST is the distribution automation system analysis base package of the CYME software. It bundles all the modeling and analysis tools required to perform various types of simulations involved in electric distribution system planning. The calculation engines support balanced or unbalanced distribution models that are built with any combination of phases and operated in radial, looped or meshed configurations.
The following analyses are included in the CYMDIST package:
Accurate modeling and representation
The modeling capabilities of the network editor of the CYME software include the detailed representation of all portions of a distribution network, including the MV primary system, the LV secondary system (radial or meshed) as well as the subtransmission system.
The Distribution Automation Training course is designed to help participants using the software effectively. After participating in this course, participants will be able to:
