Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

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.
