Power system Dynamic and
Wind Power using DIgSILENT PowerFactory (Basic V14)
University of Cyprus,
24th-25th May 2011
Prof C. A. Charalambous
Prof. Vladimir Terzija and Dr Francisco
To provide a thorough and comprehensive introduction
to the most important features of PowerFactory
The approach used in this course is learning-doing
with a practical approach from the perspective of
the power system modelling, analysis and simulation.
The topics to be covered during the seminar include:
Overview of power system analysis function in
DIgSILENT, RMS simulations for analysis of power
An introduction of the dynamic modelling with
PowerFactory and its use for constant speed wind
turbines is presented.
A good working knowledge of how to operate
Windows, Windows Explorer and any normal
Windows program (e.g. Word).
A basic mathematical understanding of
loadflow studies and fault calculations and
very good mathematical knowledge of the
basic techniques used in Control Theory.
Good understanding of dynamic processes in
power systems, previous experiences in
time-domain simulations are desired.
Participants should be familiar with the
general handling of the PowerFactory
software (Load flow and short-circuit
calculation with PowerFactory)
Background experience through the use of
DIgSILENT PowerFactory - this will greatly
enhance the participants; the handling of
the RMS-simulations is highly desired.
