Power system modelling

About the Course

Since the inception of DIgSILENT (DIgital SImuLator for Electrical NeTwork) software, the program has grown to incorporate a vast array of analysis features that are required to plan, operate and maintain any aspect of the power system. PowerFactory software was first released in providing the required product stability to guarantee efficiency in your daily application. There are many commercial packages available that can address most power system analysis problems. However, these packages differ considerably in their integration, result validity and computational efficiency.

DIgSILENT PowerFactory is the leading product with respect to integrated modelling capabilities and solution algorithms. It provides all required models and techniques of modern power systems. The main objective of this course is to introduce to the participants the different features of DIgSILENT power system analysis and simulation software.

Course Detail

This course is designed to achieve following objectives:

  • Acquainting participants with tools and skills to enable them to use DIgSILENT power system analysis software.
  • Providing the participants with skills to perform load flow analysis of power system using DIgSILENT software.
  • Providing the participants with skills to perform fault analysis of power system using DIgSILENT software.
  • Enabling participants to understand the basic components of a protection system and model the protection system using DIgSILENT software.
  • Providing the participants with the necessary tools and skills to carry out relay co-ordination analysis for variety of protection schemes using DIgSILENT software.

The short course is targeted at new electrical engineers, senior electrical engineers, researchers, and practicing electrical engineers who are involved in the area of electrical power engineering planning, operation, protection, or its relevant disciplines. However, the course should also be of interest to other electrical engineers who wish to develop their knowledge on using DIgSILENT power system analysis and simulation Software.
