    Computer Applications :
    DIgSILENT Power Factory simulation and analysis software will be used extensively during the course. This software is the leading high-end tool for applications in generation, transmission, distribution and industrial systems. It integrates smoothly into any GIS, DMS or EMS supporting open system standards and enables the user to carry out balanced and unbalanced power flow. It has many features including fault analysis, harmonics, frequency scans, stability, EMT simulations, protection simulation and co-ordination, reliability, Maintenance Schedules, static and dynamic voltage stability, power dispatch, state estimation, optimal capacitor placement, cable sizing, built-in automation interface, interfaces for GIS and SCADA integration, and PSS/E compatibility. Trainees will have hands on experience with the software and will be solving exercises using PowerFactory. All protection schemes including Overcurrent, Directional, Differential, and Distance protection schemes will be modelled and simulated using the software.
