Workshop & Tutorials

EMTP Simulation and Modeling of Inverter Based Resources

Electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation offers uncompromised accuracy that has proven to be critical for the interconnection studies of renewable energy systems.  EMTP (Electromagnetic Transient Program) is the leading EMT simulation software, widely used for studies of system stability, renewables, HVDC, microgrids, protection, etc.  At our 2h hands-on workshop, we will introduce you to EMTP and EMT modeling of renewable energy systems. You will learn how to set up and modify the models, how to run different simulation types, and how to plot and process simulation results.

The EMTP trial is valid for 2 weeks so you can continue exploring the software after the workshop. In the meantime these tutorial videos can help you get started with EMTP on your own.
