EG111V Introduction to Sustainable Electric Power Systems 3.0 credits

Do you want to deepen your understanding of the electric power system and its crucial role in a sustainable energy landscape? Then our "Introduction to Sustainable Electric Power Systems" course is the perfect choice for you!

In this 3.0 credit course, you will explore the basic concepts of electric power systems and their integration into a sustainable energy system. Please note that the course content of EG111V and EG110V is identical, with the latter also including two laboratory sessions.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

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.

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
  • 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.
