This short course is intended for electric utility engineers or engineers involved in the analysis, design, operation and installation of industrial power equipment. The main objective of this course is to introduce the widely used ElectroMagnetic Transients Program (EMTP) for the analysis of power systems. The latest Alternate Transients Program (ATP) PC version will be utilized in this course. Enrollment will be limited to allow every registrant personal attention and hands-on use of a PC for the entire course.
The course begins with introductory material for persons with little or no EMTP background. It emphasizes techniques for using the program on a PC. Sessions progress to more advanced material for the analysis of power system transients. This will include the utilization of EMTP models for transmission lines, circuit breakers, transformers, surge arresters, generators, motors, power electronics and associated control systems. It will also include actual case studies in the field of power system simulation. The new graphical interface program ATPDRAW will also be demonstrated in several course applications. Information will be provided for ATP usage on DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95, 98 and Windows NT.FURTHER INFORMATION
