Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, every student should have gained:
 An understanding of: (a)
the equipment needed for transmission of bulk electric energy
at low frequencies (60 Hz.), (b) rotating machines for
electromechanical energy conversion and (c) basic methods of
analysis for the interconnected power system.

An appreciation of the engineering requirements of the power
system, and in particular, the complexity and tremendous
size of the system needed to meet demand reliably and
economically.

A broad (if superficial) familiarity with the contemporary
technological and societal issues of the electric power
system, including such issues as: new approaches to the
overall system infrastructure, alternative fuel sources,
deregulation, social obligation to serve and environmental
impact.
Grading
Homework and Quizzes  20%
Laboratory Exercises  10%
Midterm Exams  40%
Final Exam  30%
Course policies (IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ)
 There may be occasional
quizzes given without warning whenever I see that they will be
useful.
 Homework will be posted on my
website and you should check for the latest assignment. This
avoids the problem of me forgetting to give out the assignment.
You must do the homework and laboratory exercises to pass this
class. Not completing or very poor attempts at 3 or more
assignments will result in a failure for the homework and lab
requirements and thus, failure for the course.
 The exams will be closed book
but I will include an equation sheet.
 Finally, the Department of
EECS strongly enforces academic integrity. This class allows,
even encourages, you to work together in groups on the homework
and labs but each individual must hand in their own work. Exams,
of course, are entirely independent affairs. Any instance of
cheating will result in failure for the course for all involved
parties.
