EH2710 Power System Control and Operation 7.5 credits
Styrning och drift av kraftsystem
This course is in the process of being cancelled.
The topic of the course is systems and technologies for power system operation and control and related information exchange.
Models and mathematical tools used for power system control and operation is implemented in information systems often know as SCADA/EMS, These systems are in turn integrated with other systems for analysis and decision support. The objective of the course is to provide knowledge on the importance of the different systems, the functionality they provide, the data used and exchanged as well as development of these systems
Educational levelSecond cycle
Academic level (A-D)C
Subject areaElectrical Engineering
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Last planned examination: Spring 14
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
After completing the course, the students shall :
- Be able to explain the functional content of SCADA, EMS, DMS, NIS and related systems
- Be able to create simple architectures for substation automation using IEC 61850 Create data models of utility wide information system architectures.
- Create simple system architectures involving central as well as distributed systems for power system operation and control.
- Be able to apply appropriate parts of the IEC Common Information Model to system integration problems.
- Understand importance of non-functional aspects of the systems such as data quality, performance and availability.
- Understanding of the importance of Cyber Security.
- Have knowledge of emerging trends in systems used for Power system Operation & Control
Course main content
The course contains:
Presentation of basic functionality and data for communication, data acquisition, system supervision and operation, generation control and distribution management
Presentation of functionality and data of other types of systems necessary for operation and control of power systems, such as maintenance, GIS, ERP and decision support.
Systems for substation automation based on IEC 61850, and also automation of generation plants, and distribution systems
System integration as a tool to achieve overall management of the power system, including standards and techniques to achieves this.
Developing technologies for advanced control of market based transmission systems such as PMUs and WAMC.
Methods for analysis of non-functional aspects of information systems architectures.
