Description

"Want To Become Expert In ETAP Software and Power System?" This course will help you to achieve your goals to become ETAP and Power System Expert.

Welcome to the course "ETAP Power System Analysis For Electrical Engineers"

ETAP is an analytical engineering software which is helpful for an electrical engineer to simulate and analyze the steady state and dynamic power system. It is used by various sectors such as Generation, Transmission, Distribution, Industrial, Transportation and Low voltage.

The purpose of this course is to learn power system modeling & analysis using ETAP software which will cover a range of ETAP functionalities used to design & solve various power system practical problems.

The course will begin with the software overview, basics of one-line diagram creation, data entry, and quickly expands the users’ knowledge to include methods to automatically perform multiple ‘what if’ studies using multiple scenarios. Wherever possible, the topics are explained with hand calculations and results are compared with ETAP software so that it becomes more easier to the attendees to understand the concepts.

Below major topics are covered in this course:

  • Load Flow Analysis With Supporting Hand Calculations

  • Cable Ampacity and Sizing

  • Transformer MVA Sizing

  • Short Circuit Analysis With Supporting Hand Calculations

  • Protection & Coordination Analysis

  • Arc Flash Analysis Using IEEE:1584-2002 Standard

  • Motor Starting Analysis

Benefits of attending this course:

  1. Course is published using ETAP 19.5

  2. ETAP software generated results are supported with Hand Calculations

  3. Downloadable course material and Hand Calculations
