DIgSILENT Power Factory software is one of the most powerful network analysis software that is used in all the areas of generation, transmission, and distribution. DIgSILENT stands for DIgital SImuLation and Electrical NeTwork calculation program.

The purpose of this training is to acquaint engineers with the process of analyzing power systems to carry out research, industrial and other projects. Using this software, almost any power network can be modeled and calculations such as load flow, short circuit, transient analysis, optimal capacitor placement, cable size optimization, etc. can be provided in the form of various functions. In addition, other features such as programming in DPL language and defining DSL models provide the flexibility for the user to perform the desired analysis on the power system and the equipment that is not available in the software library.
