This course will be discontinued.
Last planned examination: Autumn 2024
Decision to discontinue this course:
The course will be discontinued at the end of Autumn 2024 according to the head of school's decision: J-2023-0209.
Decision date: 2023-03-14
The course was given for the last time in the Autumn of 2022. The last opportunity for examination in the course is given in Autumn 2024.
Students who wish to complete the course after it has been given for the last time shall contact the examiner.
The overall aim of this course is to provide a conceptual understanding of the fundamentals of the electric power system as a component of a sustainable energy system. Please note that the content of the course EG111V Introduction to sustainable electric power systems, 3 credits is identical to EG110V Sustainable electric power systems 7,5 credits, the only difference is that the larger course EG110V also has two laboratory course components. This means e.g. that both courses cannot be included in one and the same degree.
Content and learning outcomes
The course is divided into four parts as follows:
- Introduction with course information and presentation of the electric power system as a part of a sustainable energy system.
- Basic modelling and analysis of the electric power systems: from physics of electricity, basic circuit analysis to modelling of AC systems to power flow assessment.
- Studies of the performance of the power system including aspect of; new development with e.g. integration about renewable energy, operation and stability and market.
- Conclusion with course summary..
There are two laboratory items in the course:
- Experimental lab which gives an introduction to electric circuits.
- Computer lab that deals with simulation of the electric power system and handling of stability. PowerWorld Simulator will be used.
Before experimental lab is carried out, the safety instructions must be read, be understood and the course for working in the lab must be passed. For each lab. should a laboratory report be submitted and be approved.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student shall be able to
- describe conceptually the technical basic properties and the performance of the electric power system with main function to deliver electricity between production, consumption and storing
- carry out basic modelling and analysis of electric circuits
- describe the basics of synchronous generators
- describe the basics of the three phase transmission system
- carry out calculations per unit in the electric power system
- describe the basic impact of different power loads on the electric power system
- formulate and solve current flow analysis problem
- describe the basic behaviour of the electric power system based on simulation tools
- reason about and give examples of how an electric power system can be developed with the aim of contributing to a sustainable society.
Literature and preparations
Documented knowledge in basic mathematics and statistics, 5 ECTS-credits.
The upper secondary course English B/6.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB1 - Laboratory work, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LAB2 - Computer assignment, 2.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TENA - Oral exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
