Learning is a continuous process and enables us to be competitive in our field. Consistent with this belief and built on a strong experience in this field, we offer video training courses for practicing professionals in the area of Substation Automation and Protection Relays. The material of each course is designed to help you to be a professional in the field.

PSCAD Training for protection engineers

Part 1: In this part, a simple three-phase AC system is simulated. Different elements and their parameters are explained with details.

Part 2: In this part, a simple distance protection scheme is presented with details.

Part 3: In this part, a relay study case, Digital fault recorder, and how to use this component to test a protection relay are presented.

Part 4: In this part more relay study cases are presented.

Part 5: This part presents an experimental study on impedance-based fault location function. Several faults in different locations are simulated in PSCAD, The Comtrade file of each is loaded in the Omicron test universe and the associated voltage and current are injected to the SEL 421 (Distance relay) to test the relay fault location.
