Power System Dynamic and Renewable Energy Resources: Modelling, Simulation and Analysis using DIgSILENT PowerFactory

Universidad de Santiago de Chile, DIE-Usach, Av. Ecuador 3519, Estación Central, Santiago de Chile, Chile. 9th-10th August 2012

1. Objective:

To provide a thorough and comprehensive introduction to the most important aspect of modelling, analysis and simulation of the dynamic behaviour of power system with/without the integration of renewable energy, using the main features of PowerFactory software.

The approach used in this course is learning-doing, two main components for the considered approach are: (i) strong theoretical and abstract concepts required for an accurate modelling/analysis and (ii) the practical approach required on the perspective of the power system simulation.

The topics to be covered during the seminar include: Overview of power system analysis function in DIgSILENT, RMS simulations for analysis of power system stability. An introduction of the dynamic modelling with PowerFactory and its use for wind power integration studies.

2. Pre-Requisites:

• 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 on control system design.

• 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.  

3. Duration:

This seminar is designed for duration of 2 days, considering 8 hours per day.

4. Location:

Universidad de Santiago de Chile, DIE-Usach, Av. Ecuador 3519, Estación Central, Santiago de Chile, Chile.
