Applications of PSCAD in Power Systems including Switching and Lightning Induced Transients for Insulation Coordination Transient Studies
This course will cover the electromagnetic transient studies that are required to determine the insulation levels and ratings of sub-station equipment. Specific topics will include the following:
- selection of surge arrester (ratings and position) to protect substation equipment from lightning and switching surges
- development of a system model for switching frequency over voltage studies and estimation of ‘failure rates’
- lightning over voltage studies - representation of station equipment, line segments and towers for a lightning over voltage study
- circuit breaker TRV
- capacitor switching transients
Course participants will be able to experiment with the case studies in an interactive hands-on workshop environment using the PSCAD simulation software.
Duration: 2 days
Who should attend?
This course is intended for practicing engineers, graduate students, and researchers in power systems and power electronics, who are interested in developing an in depth understanding of the modern tools available for station design.
It is recommended that class participants have at least a basic or intermediate working knowledge of PSCAD.
