2009-06 Simulation and Analysis of Power System Transients
April 13-15, 2009


   The objective of this course is to give to beginner and intermediate participants a good hands-on experience on the simulation and analysis of power systems transients in general. The course will cover modeling issues for rotating machine dynamics, insulation coordination, lightning, power quality, and distributed generation.
