RTDS SIMULATOR REAL TIME SIMULATION TRAINING COURSES

RTDS Technologies regularly holds Simulator training courses at our world-class simulation lab in Winnipeg, Manitoba. These are hands-on courses that typically run over 5 days and are led by our team of simulation experts. The following is a list of courses that are available and their scheduled dates. Please note that we require a minimum of 5 participants to run each course. Each course is limited to 15 participants. Please register early. 

Introductory RTDS Simulator Training Course – Skillman, NJ

For the first time we are offering our popular Introductory Training Course in the USA! Join RTDS Technologies and Nayak Corporation in New Jersey in July for our 5-day introductory course. The same course that we offer regularly at our headquarters in Winnipeg, Canada!

This introductory course focuses on the basic use of the RTDS® Simulator’s hardware and software. The following topics will be covered as part of the course:

  • Overview of the principles of operation of the RTDS Simulator and an introduction to the electromagnetic transients algorithm used.
  • Introduction to the RSCAD® Software Suite and its modules.
  • Build and run a number of power system simulation cases showing the capabilities and limitations of the RTDS Simulator.
  • Use of various I/O cards – GTAO, GTAI, GTDO, GTDI and GTFPI.
  • Introduction to developing an interface between an external protective relay and the RTDS Simulator for closed-loop testing.
  • Use RSCAD’s CBuilder module to create user defined models.
  • Use scripts to automate the process of running simulation cases
  • Introduction to the small time step capability of the RTDS Simulator for modeling power electronic circuits.

Dates: July 16 – 20, 2018
