Course Description
This course will cover fundamentals of electric power systems,
including basic principles, the per-unit system, modeling of generators,
transformers and transmission lines, power flow, and optimal dispatch. Some
basic ideas on power system reliability and security will be introduced. There
will be moderate work of programming in MATLAB or using professional power
system simulation software for power system studies. Students are also
encouraged to review literature on recommended emerging topics to gain broader
knowledge on, e.g., renewable energy resources and smart grid technology.
Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course (and the pre-requisites to this course), every
student should have gained:
·
An understanding of
basic principles and models on electric power system components
·
A familiarity with
modern computer-aided methods for power system steady-state analysis
·
Knowledge in emerging
power system techniques.
