Before choosing course

This course deals with basic models and methods that are used in analysis of electric power systems. These models and methods are fairly general and can be applied to a power system of any scale ranging from a small-scale distribution grid to a national transmission network.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course deals with basic models and methods that are used in analysis of electric power systems. These models and methods are fairly general and can be applied to a power system of any scale ranging from a small-scale distribution grid to a national transmission network.

Intended learning outcomes

Upon completion of the course the student will be able to

  • explain the static state in a power system,
  • create computational models suitable for analysis of symmetrical as well as unsymmetrical conditions in a power system,
  • formulate the load flow calculation problem,
  • perform sensitivity analysis  and optimal power flow to decrease power losses,
  • describe schematically the positive-, negative, and zero-sequence networks of an unbalanced system.
