Powersys – EMTP-RV Transient Analysis Software

EMTP-RV is a fully-featured and technically advanced simulation and analysis software for power system transients. The software incorporates a sophisticated computer program for the simulation of electromagnetic, electromechanical and control systems transients in multiphase electric power systems.EMTP-RV logo

EMTP-RV features a wide variety of modelling capabilities encompassing electromagnetic and electromechanical oscillations ranging in duration from a few microseconds to minutes.

The standard library provides a comprehensive and well-documented list of components and function blocks that allow the user to model and simulate complex power system studies, including:

  • Advanced models of electrical equipment and devices
  • Detailed and precise models of lines and cables
  • Complete models of transformers that allow modelling of saturation and the hysteresis of the magnetic core
  • Extensive control devices and functions
  • HVDC systems

In addition, the Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides many customisation options for simple adaptation to the user requirements. The software is “open source”, which allows scripting, and the capability for users to “drill down” to the final component level and adjust characteristics as required. “ScopeView” data display and analysis provides waveform visualisation and advanced mathematical post-processing capabilities.

For ETAP users, an optional ETAP model import tool saves valuable time in managing fast transients analyses such as lightning studies and switching transients.

Typical EMTP-RV applications include:

  • Wind generation
  • Lightning studies
  • Switching surges
  • Power electronics and FACTS devices
  • HVDC
