EMTP: Transients, Stability & Load-flow in the same software


EMTP is the most complete and technically advanced software for simulation and analysis of power systems.

  • EMTP is the reference for the simulation of electromagnetic and electromechanical transients. It is known to be the fastest, the most accurate and the most numerically stable time-domain software in the industry.

  • Control systems and protections can be modelled in detail using the complete libraries of components.

  • EMTP has a powerful unbalanced multi-phase load-flow capable of solving very large scale transmission and distribution grids, cases with more than 300 000 buses can be solved.

  • EMTP has the most user-friendly graphical interface and load-flow, steady-state and time-domain simulations using the same grid data and within the same environment.

  • EMTP is completely scriptable. EVERYTHING that can be done by hand can be automated by scripts!

  • EMTP uses dynamic memory allocation and can simulate arbitrary topology networks without any user intervention: what you draw is what you simulate!
