The training can be delivered in a classroom setting, online, or through self-study. Depending on the training provider, the course may be aimed at beginners or those with some experience in power systems analysis. Some training providers may also provide a certificate of completion. It is best to ask the provider for more details on the content, format, and certification.

ETAP training courses are categorized by skill level, length and subject matter. Find a course that suits your needs and advance your knowledge. The aim of this course is to learn power system modeling and analysis using ETAP software. In this course, ETAP software.

ETAP is the most powerful software used in the power industry for power system calculations. This course will improve the ability of engineers to understand and conduct power system studies on their own, ultimately benefiting career development.

Power system hardware must withstand not only the nominal voltage, which is related to the highest voltage of a particular unit but also short-level voltages. One of the key issues related to voltages is arc flashover operation, which is mainly based on short circuit and relay coordination studies.

 

ETAP is a kind of analysis software for the study of power systems used in many industries. Power systems analysis means verifying the suitability of the power distribution system and its components, recognizing interruptions and outages related to coordination, and collecting the necessary data to make a detailed study.
