Course contents *
The course is given in English, and treats models and computation methods for power systems. The models and the methods are general and can be applied to industrial power system and local distribution networks as well as to national transmission networks. In the course assignments these models and methods are applied to solve realistic problems with computer programs written in MATLAB.
The following areas are treated in the course:
Symmetrical phasors: Three-phase systems, one-phase equivalents, the per-unit system, circuit theorems, admittance matrixes, impedance matrixes, load flow analysis, models of components in power systems such as lines, generators, cables, transformers, loads etc.
Unsymmetrical phasors: Symmetrical components, calculation methods, models of transmission lines, transformers, generators etc.
Load flow analysis: Problem formulation, models, solution methods.
Power system dynamics: Stability of dynamic systems, Lyapunov functions, modeling of power system components for transient stability analysis, stability of power systems, equal area criterion, rotor angle stability, voltage stability.
