PSSC_800Introduction to PSS®E GIC Module -- 

At a glance

Geomagnetic Disturbances (GMDs) occur when solar energetic particles from the sun migrate to the earth and cause short-term variations in the earth’s magnetic field. These variations can eventually lead to Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GICs) and a potential increase in var losses and harmonic distortion that may lead to voltage stability problems. The objective of the PSSC 800 course is to provide participants with an introduction to the GIC module in PSS®E, the theory of GIC, and the configuration and operation of the module.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have a fundamental understanding of GIC theory and basic knowledge to perform GICstudies using PSS®E.
