Power Systems Transients and Insulation Coordination course

April 21-24, 2015 (The course is confirmed)
4-Day training
London, UK
Using EMTP-RV for simulation and analysis of Power Systems and for Insulation Coordination studies

Language: English. As the software is in English all supports will be written in English. 
Public: New users of the software and people who wish to discover the powerful features of EMTP-RV.
Training Fees: 2000 Euros* excl VAT for the 4 days per person.
* (A 3% fee is applied for credit card payments)

Training objectives:

The objective of this training is to give to beginner participants a good first hands-on experience on EMTP-RV and an overview of the EMTP-RV capabilities.
The training is based on the usage of EMTP-RV for demonstrating concepts and teaching through practical problem cases.

  •  Manage the GUI,
  •  Choose the configuration (models, equipments) suited to the type of simulation to run.
  •  Identify and solve simulation failures.
  •  Analyze simulation results.

Training structure:

The duration of the training is 4 days.
The training starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. every day.


Dr. Davor Vujatovic CEng FIET and Ngor SENE (POWERSYS).

Computer and temporary EMTP-RV license:

Each participant will have to bring a personal computer. EMTP-RV temporary licenses will be provided for the duration of the training.

Intended audience:

They could be users of the software but also people who would like to discover how useful simulation can be for them.

  • Professionals from Power Transmission,
  • Distribution and Production companies,
  • Professional engineers,
  • Consultants,
  • Post-graduated students.
  • People interested in electromagnetic transient studies
