Power System Modeling and Stability Analysis Using ETAP – Beginner to Advance Level Course

Learn how to perform power system modeling and power system stability analysis using ETAP. The course covers generator dynamics & transient stability analysis, synchronism of generating sources, and many other important lessons. 23 lectures in 3h 35m total course length.

Course Description

The purpose of this course is to teach you how to perform power system modeling and power system stability analysis using ETAP. The course consists of 23 lectures in 3h 35m total length.

The course begins with fundamentals of generator dynamics and transient stability analysis, synchronism of generating sources, synchronous generator direct (d) and quadrature (q) axis model, and continues with sub-transient, transient and steady-state model, swing equation, small and large disturbance stability, equal area criterion, etc.

The course also covers the simulation of transient stability analysis using ETAP software. The user will be able to create a single line diagram, data entry, and quickly expand the knowledge to automatically perform multiple ‘what if’ studies using multiple scenarios.

The topics are explained with theoretical aspects as well as hand calculations so that it becomes more easier to the attendees to understand the concepts.
