Intended learning outcomes

In this course students are prepared to become power system analysts, with the fundamental knowledge that they can use in the future for furthering their ability in designing and planning electrical power networks, and to characterize the most basic practices used in power system operations.

After completing the course, the students should be able to:

• Using first principles derive the basic concepts and methods used for power system analysis.

• To construct mathematical models for computing the steady state performance, and basic unbalanced performance of power systems.

• To derive, describe and compare different models of the most common equipment used in power network models.

• Using different methods, to compute, analyze, and reflect on the performance of a power system under steady state  under symmetrical as well as unsymmetrical conditions.

Course main content

Fundamental Principles for Power System Analysis AC circuits, methods for Analysis and Design of Power Networks in Steady State under symmetrical as well as unsymmetrical conditions.
