It‘s your choice

We support your efforts by providing a training pro-


gram specifically tailored to your needs, and which
can be conducted either in one of our modern train-
ing centers, on your premises, or online in the form
of e-Learning, where this is appropriate.

Courses can be held in one


of our training centers,
on your premises or in our
virtual classroom.

Classes in our training center or at your company


We’ve established special training centers for our class-
((new picture))
es in several locations. With modern classrooms and
access to actual products, these centers provide the
ideal conditions for transmitting theoretical knowledge
and practical experience.

On-site training
Naturally, we’re also happy to bring the training to you
and conduct our classes on your premises where this is
appropriate. These in-house trainings are especially rec-
ommended when a number of employees need to learn
about a new technology or when there’s a general in-
terest in a particular subject within your company.

The electronic alternative: e-Learning


If you want to learn about technical innovations or
product changes but don’t have time for traditional
training, our “virtual classroom” offers a feasible alter-
native. e-Learning lets you extend your expertise in
specialized subject areas. Our on-line training is
designed to serve small groups and is individually
adapted to your own preferences and requirements.

7
You’re always sitting front-row and center.

Our training is always in


small groups, interactive
and hands-on.
A wide range of subjects
In addition to technical and product-specific
topics, we also offer courses generally related
to the energy market or energy management.

Course modules
Our training programs are designed as modu-
lar packages to cover all possible require-
ments, and each program can be flexibly
adapted to your particular needs. If you have
very specific preferences, we’d be glad to put
together an individualized training program.

The right mix of theory and practice


All our courses combine theory and practice,
meaning that detailed theoretical explanations
are always accompanied by practical exercises
involving actual devices and systems. To make
this possible, we’ve equipped our training cent-
ers with original, operational components, de-
vices and systems from our product range. Our
commitment to hands-on training guarantees
all participants an optimal learning experience.

8
Leave the organizing to us.

We´ll get you set up – and


offer you an interesting
extended program.
Small groups, big successes
In order to maximize learning, we deliberately
limit the number of participants. Keeping this
number to a manageable level is essential for
the efficient transmission of knowledge and
focused, individualized instruction.

The Siemens PTI Low-Voltage Spot Network Simulator is used to dem-
onstrate the basic concepts discussed in the formal class presentations.
This learning tool helps the student understand how system power
flows and phasing voltages are affected by system impedances, feeder
and network loads, source voltage magnitude and angle, load power
factors and network transformer tap settings. The characteristics and
settings of the network relays can be changed in the Simulator to show
the effect on protector tripping and automatic reclosing. The benefits
of the new circle close characteristic (see figure) are discussed in the
presentation and demonstrated with the simulator. The Simulator is
also used to demonstrate what can happen during manual closing and
tripping of network protectors in spot networks. The student is given
the opportunity to use the Simulator.

The training will be most beneficial to power system planners,
designers and operators who have had at least a year of involve-
ment in the application of load flows and a working understand-
ing of time simulation applied to network dynamics.

Note:
The concepts and methodologies are introduced through class-
room lectures which feature discussions wherein participants
are encouraged to relate their own experiences or introduce
their own ideas. These are paralleled by hands-on sessions,
which constitute about 50% of the class time, where repre-
sentative practical transmission problems are examined using
modern network analysis. In-class access to pc-based compu-
ter programs that include Siemens PTI‘s PSS™E, PSS™MUST,

PSS™NEVA – Eigenvalue and Modal
Analysis course

Training objectives:
Interarea oscillation is a typical phenomenon in large power
systems. System damping can be improved by modulation of
power thus injecting or consuming extra energy in the system
in an appropriate phase. This can be done by modulating power
at the power plant – by means of PSS or by affecting the power
flow in the system. HVDC and FACTS with their ability to change
the power flow directly or indirectly within ms offer the pos-
sibility to improve the system dynamic and stability and thus to
make better use of the installed capacity. The “NEVA – Eigen-
value and Modal Analysis” module for all products of the PSS™
family (PSS™NETOMAC, PSS™PSS™SINCAL, PSS™E) extends the
analysis methods for these oscillations (can help increase sys-
tem stability, allows a deeper view into weak points, determines
the best damping locations, offers different damping strategies,
etc.). Each training day starts with lectures and continues with
practical exercises.

The training is intended for:


Engineers and service technicians from power supply utilities
and industry in operation, planning, design of network and its
components.

Main features:
• Basics of Eigenvalue- and modal analysis
• Exercises to NEVA-application
• Locating weak points in power systems
• Placement of damping equipment (Stabilizer, FACTS, etc.)
• Launching NEVA from PSS™ products
• Case studies and exercises
