Power System Electro-Magnetic Transients (EMT) Simulation Training - Our 12-hour live online instructor-led course covers the fundamentals and applications of EMT simulation. EMT simulation is an essential tool for electric power engineers in the fields of protection, operation, system planning and/or designing.

This comprehensive two-day training course will provide invaluable information to anyone who wishes to understand the basic algorithms and applications of EMT simulation. It will clarify the similarity and differences with other approaches, including steady state analysis, fault analysis, harmonic analysis, load flow, transient stability. This course will explain the factors that would influence the effectiveness and accuracy of the simulation results, it would also provide insights on how to best use the tool.

Furthermore, while illustrating how simulation works, it will also analyze and examine common phenomena in power systems, such as switching overvoltage, transformer saturation, inrush, ferroresonance, travelling wave and Ferronti effects associated with power transmission lines.

This Power System Electro-Magnetic Transients Simulation Training Course is designed to be an interactive, hands-on, and problem-based forum. It offers an excellent opportunity for students of all disciplines to ask specific questions and exchange ideas regarding their own applications, and to be well-informed of the most commonly used software and hardware available in EMT simulation.

The course will be led by an instructor who has over 20 years of experience in EMT simulation with a world-leading company in the field. Free simulation tools will be available to all students.
