Weekly Informational and Training Webinars

At EasyPower, we offer a variety of weekly webinar sessions to help you become better acquainted with the software and to further develop your skills and understanding. There are two different types of webinars.

  • The Tuesday Refresher webinars are short (30 minute) sessions going over the basics of using EasyPower software in a variety of situations.
  • The Thursday webinars topics will vary and are also applicable for beginning to advanced users, depending on the topics covered. See the webinar schedule below.

If you are not currently using EasyPower, download a free demo version of the software and sign up for one of these classes or view the free training videos. We also offer extensive regional and on-site training options - view our training schedule.

Tuesday Refresher Webinars

Start at 8:00am PST (roughly every other week)

Topic - Refresher/beginner series for using EasyPower software, various topics. This will include insights and tips for using EasyPower, not system engineering, which is often covered more in the Thursday Webinars.

  • Presented by David Lewis, PE, Grounding and Power Systems at EasyPower
  • Completed - Watch Video Now

Description - Solar photovoltaics (PV) power plants are playing a greater role in the generation of power in North America, and several factors expect this increased growth in the coming years. As PV generation is modular, some facilities range from 5 -20 MW and interconnect with a utility’s distribution circuit. Larger facilities can provide 300 MW or more, are often designed with their own collector substation, and interconnect with transmission level voltages. This discussion, given by David Lewis, PE, Grounding and Power Systems at EasyPower, will step through several modeling methods to accurately assess the grounding system performance with regard to IEEE Std 80 personnel safety criteria. Transferred voltages, lumped impedances, regional analysis, and other analysis concerns will be addressed.

Description - The increased adoption of electric vehicles requires the development of suitable electric infrastructures for the vehicle recharging. Hence, transient and steady-state fault analysis (short circuit and ground fault) is needed for these infrastructures, taking into consideration the fault contributions coming not only from the Utility, but also (when considering an LVDC infrastructure for fast charging) from capacitors and electric vehicle batteries themselves, depending on converter typology. This webinar, given by Marco Carminati, Ph.D., a Direct Current Application Specialist at ABB, provides qualitative fault analysis in LVDC electric vehicle charging infrastructures and considerations on the choice of suitable and innovative switching and protective devices.

Description - GFCIs have proven to be an excellent step forward in reducing shock injuries and fatalities in residential and commercial applications. In an effort to do the same on industrial circuits with higher voltages, Class C, D, an E Special-Purpose GFCIs were introduced to the market around 10 years ago. While both GFCIs and SPGFCIs detect and react rapidly to fault current, SPGFCIs include an additional capability to independently detect the loss of equipment grounding. This webinar, given by Mark Pollock at Littlefuse,  reviews how this ground monitoring/interrupter functionality helps the device to stop the shock even before it happens.

Description - Costly mistakes can be made when specifying short circuit ratings without verifying the utility fault current. Best practice is to contact the utility early in the design however some educated assumptions can be made prior to receiving the utility fault letter. This presentation, given by Andrew Legro at ABB, explains the variation in fault currents based on the type of utility service and then discuss considerations in specifying the short circuit rating of connected equipment.
