Content and learning outcomes
This course covers power system stability and control. In the course, different mathematical models are presented to describe power system dynamics and to analyse power system instabilities. Furthermore, different control algorithms are presented and implemented to improve power system stability.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student shall be able to
1. create mathematical models to describe power system dynamics
2. based on the derived mathematical models, apply different basic methods to
a) study and analyse power system instabilities
b) improve power system stability based on basic control algorithms,
c) describe and analyse effect of integration of renewable energy on power system dynamics and stability
3. numerically carry out the second intended learning outcomes by using Matlab, and present and discuss obtained numerical results.
Literature and preparations
- Knowledge in analysis of electric power system, 6 higher education credits, equivalent to completed course EG2100.
- Knowledge in automatic control, 6 higher education credits, equivalent completed course EL1000/EL1110.
- Knowledge in numerical methods and basic programming, 9 higher education credits, equivalent completed course SF1519.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PROJ - Project, 7.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, 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.
