Introduction to PSCAD
The course has been designed to give participants with little or no experience with PSCAD, the knowledge required to build EMT models of power systems and related components, execute simulations and retrieve results for analysis. After successful completion of the course, participants
- Have an understanding of EMT modelling, its benefits and uses within the context of the Australian power system
- Be able to navigate the PSCAD user interface and understand project structuring
- Understand how to build EMT models in PSCAD and execute simulations
- Have the ability to generate outputs from the PSCAD workspace for analysis
- Understand the key components of network modelling for the purpose of undertaking power system studies in the time-domain
- EMT Modelling
- Introduction to the PSCAD Workspace
- Modelling in PSCAD
- Modelling in PSCAD Continued
- Workshop - Transformer energisation study
- Workshop - Fault study with synchronous generator
- Workshop - Connection study of inverter based resource
